Should I be worried about inadvertent consanguinity (also known as inbreeding)?

There is no reason to be concerned about the partnering of two donor-conceived children from the same sperm donor. The risk is extremely low, and it may only increase by a few percent compared to normal procreation. The risk is mitigated when the sperm bank distributes nationally and internationally, as Cryos does.

Cryos follows the national quota which defines the number of families that can use a donor in each country. This helps ensure inbreeding cases to be almost inexistent.

You can always check if the national quota has been reached for a specific donor. Select your country of residence and country of treatment in the Sperm Donor Search, click on "see details" for a specific donor, and use the "check pregnancy quota" function to get the needed information.
