Reservation of donor sperm for later use

Why should you reserve straws from your favourite donor? Here are the advantages:

  • Do not risk your favourite sperm donor being sold out
  • Do not risk having to change sperm donor in the middle of treatment
  • Ensure genetic siblings
  • Cryos guarantees to repurchase (75% refund of the straw price)

Before starting treatment

When you have found your favourite sperm donor you should make a reservation immediately. There is always a risk that the donor you are using will be sold out. Almost daily we hear from customers who are disappointed, because their donor has disappeared from the donor list.

In average, it takes 5 to 6 cycle treatments to achieve pregnancy, so your donor could be sold out during this time. If you want to ensure that you have enough donor sperm from the same sperm donor for the entire course of treatment, you should make a reservation before starting your treatment

Also remember to check that the pregnancy quota for your donor has not been reached. Read more about quota reservations.

When you have become pregnant

For parents who have had a child using one of our sperm donors and who wish to ensure the option of having genetic siblings in the future, it is even more important to reserve donor sperm. If you want to use the same sperm donor, you should reserve a sufficient number of straws as soon as possible, after a pregnancy has been registered. If you do not make a reservation, you risk that the sperm donor is sold out. The benefits of using the same donor for future pregnancies are obvious:

  • The children will be 100% genetically related and therefore have the best chance of having similar features
  • Not all sperm donors and recipients are a biological match. If you have achieved a positive result using a specific sperm donor, there is a very good chance that you will also achieve a positive result in the future
  • You know what to expect
  • The children will have each other as reference in personal identity relations

Do not wait - reserve the donor sperm online now!

To ensure that the sperm donor is not sold out and that there are enough straws, we recommend that you reserve straws when you place your first order. Instead of ordering donor sperm for delivery, simply indicate the number of straws under 'Reservation'.

What if the sperm donor is sold out?

If the sperm donor with whom you have previously registered a pregnancy is sold out, you can be registered on a waiting list – for siblings only. We will contact you if sperm is released from quarantine at some future date or if others who have made a reservation cancel their reservation.

How much sperm should I reserve?

This will depend on your individual situation. However, the more donor sperm you reserve, the greater the security. Contact Cryos or your clinic (where applicable) to discuss your needs.

On average, you should expect 5-6 cycle treatments per pregnancy for treatment at a clinic. The average pregnancy rate is between 10 to 40% per cycle treatment, depending on the patient's age and health condition, the clinic's experience, hormone stimulation, timing, the sperm preparation method, sperm quality, insemination method, etc. Around 50 to 60% of an unselected group of women become pregnant after six months of treatment and about 80% after 12 months of treatment.

Remember that our recommendations are based on average straw consumption per pregnancy. If you want greater security, you should reserve more, or if you for example want three children, you should reserve three times as much sperm.
