By choosing sperm storage, you ensure that you have enough sperm straws from your preferred donor for future fertility treatments.
Reserving donor sperm
Advantages of sperm storage
When choosing to store sperm straws from your preferred donor with us, you are essentially reserving them for your future use.
Sometimes, straws from a specific donor sell out, and this can affect you if you would like to use a specific donor again - whether it be for additional treatments or future siblings. The donor may have stopped donating entirely, or he has chosen to pause his donation activity for a while.
By registering for a storage unit, you do not have to worry about your preferred donor being unavailable in the future.
If you already have children by a specific donor, sperm storage is also beneficial because you know that you are able to conceive with that donor's sperm.
When you order straws online, you can select a storage unit and length of storage at checkout.
If you register for a storage unit during fertility treatment and you do not use all your straws, you can choose to store the additional straws in case you want to have a second child later on.
If you don't want to use the straws that you have in storage with us, we'll refund part of your expenses for buying the sperm. You'll get back 75% of your initial cost until 3 years after your date of purchase - following that, the refund will decrease gradually. You can read more about sperm straw refunds in our terms and conditions.
If you want to register for a storage unit for potential siblings, we recommend reserving the straws as soon as possible. If you wait too long, there is a risk that the sperm donor will no longer be available.
