Fairfax Cryobank Family Forums
Our Online Community for Those Using Donor Sperm
  Fairfax Cryobank now offers a place for clients to discuss donor sperm related topics. Fairfax Cryobank Family Forums is a creation from your suggestions and requests to connect with parents of half-siblings. The discussion board is a very friendly and welcoming place for single mothers, same sex couples, and couples with fertility issues. No matter where you are in the insemination process, we encourage you to visit either or both forums for fantastic information and stories from others in similar situations. The topics range from where to start when considering using donor sperm to donor conceived children's tenth birthday parties.

When you visit the forum for the first time, you must create a user name and password in order to post to the board. In order to keep the discussion board free from spam and advertising, all initial posts will be reviewed by the Moderator before becoming visible on the forum. Future posts in the public discussion boards will be posted immediately so you can actively engage in topics.


There is also a private donor forum area that serves as a sibling registry for Fairfax Cryobank. This area is restricted to clients who have purchased donor sperm and would like to get updated information about their child's donor and possibly connect with half-siblings. It is also a great place to share pictures of your child in a more private setting if you wish.

Who Gets the Sperm?

by Dr. Michelle Ottey, Director of Operations
As featured on FertilityAuthority.com
Michelle Ottey

Not all sperm donors are alike. When screening for sperm donors, sperm banks are looking for a good, diverse, representative group of men who will appeal to our patients.

The staff meets the prospective sperm donors and works with them through the screening process. At our labs we do in person medical and program interviews with the prospective donors. It is during these interviews that we really start to get to know the men and they open up to us.

Most of the interview consists of reviewing the program requirements, reviewing their medical histories, clarifying health history and the overview of the process. We always allow time for the prospective sperm donors to ask us questions, which range from, "What do you mean when you say I have a great specimen?" to "Who gets the sperm?"

The processing questions are easy and straightforward. The more thoughtful questions often lead to interesting conversation with the men. I was once asked about who the recipients were, and what followed was a long and sympathetic conversation about medical and social infertility. I spoke to the prospective sperm donor - we'll call him B - about our patients. I told him that we serve a very diverse group of men and women, including heterosexual couples who are facing medical infertility, single women who are ready to become mothers, and same-sex couples who want to build families through donor insemination.

B looked very invested in the information and considered it carefully before responding to me. He told me that he started the process thinking it would be an easy way to earn some extra money, but as he screened and learned more, he became more invested in the process. He shared that doing this sperm donor program was more than he expected, in a very good way. He was so happy to know that all different kinds of families could result from his donating.

We have had sperm donors ask about the recipients many times, and each time we have had a positive experience after telling them about all of our diverse patients.
