There are two types of sperm donors: open and non-contact donors.
A non-contact donor doesn't want his identity to be revealed to the child. For that reason, the child can't establish contact with a non-contact donor at any point.
Non-contact donors are also called anonymous donors. However, their identities are known to us, and their online profiles contain a wide range of personal information. That's why it's more accurate to refer to these donors as non-contact donors.
If you choose an open donor, your child can find out the identity of the donor when he/she comes of age. Your child - and only your child - can obtain this information by contacting us. We also offer the child the option of doing a DNA test to ensure full certainty of his or her genetic heritage.
If your child has an open donor and would like to contact him, we'll let the donor know and ask him if he is interested. The donor is not obligated to any form of contact with your child. If the donor would like to establish contact with the child, this could take the form of an email, a telephone call or an actual meeting - whatever the child and the donor feel comfortable with.
Whether both types of donors are available in your treatment country, depends on the legislation of the individual country. If having an open or non-contact donor is important for you, consider getting treatment in a country that allows your preferred donor type. Contact us if you need more information about your options in other countries.
