What are the best sperm banks?
Thu, 06-21-2007 - 3:55pm

had a natural IUI with my husband's sperm this cycle, only had 9 million motile in final wash and forward progression of just 2. Doesn't look like IUI with my husbands sperm is a viable solution for us unless his counts improve.

If there is no improvement, our options look to be ICSI or donor sperm.

Looking into donor sperm banks- wondering what people's experiences are and what the best places to go are.

I'd like to be assured of not catching any diseases from the sperm, and would like to be able to select by IQ or level of education, as well as height, weight, eye color, hair color, and physical appearance.

Thought some of the ladies here might be able to share their experience and opinions. Thanks!

We were impressed by the amount of information we got from Fairfax Cryobank. you can get a fair bit of information for free, and then you can purchase more info.
