Selecting a donor is a very important decision for a patient. We understand how disappointing it is when a patient makes a donor selection only to be told that the donor is no longer available. We try to only keep donors on our list that have a good inventory. This increases our ability to provide patients with the same donor for repeat cycles if needed.
Shopping for a Sperm Donor in Texas
Home | The Sperm Bank of California
Sperm donation in the USA is mainly controlled by large sperm banks. Some of the sperm banks are listed below but there are many more local agencies, which we anticipate to list over time. Since sperm is easily frozen, the sperm banks can generally serve the Tampa, Florida area in addition to the rest of the USA. They may have locations to donate that are different from Tampa, Florida. To qualify, most agencies have height and education requirements. There will also be a thorough evaluation of a donor's health history and that of their family. A sperm donor must go through an application process, of which key sections will be validated for accuracy.

And I know, this can seem completely overwhelming- hang in there! Maybe it's because they are a non-profit, they do seem to try a bit harder to keep accurate records and to act in a more responsible and ethical manner. They are not perfect, but do seem to try harder to contact donors when a child turns 18, not just send a generic letter in the mail, as some banks, like California Cryobank have done. Or not responding, or claiming that donors are not really "open" at all, as some banks do. We think that 18 is an arbitrary number, only in place to protect the sperm bank's liabilities.
