Checklist


There can be a lot to remember in connection with donor-assisted conception, especially if it is your first time. To help you through the process, we have made a simple checklist that you can refer to throughout. If, at any point, you need help or further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Key decisions:

What type of donor is:

  1. Allowed in your treatment country
  2. Right for your family? Open or non-contact (anonymous) donor?

Make an appointment at the clinic you have chosen:

  1. Conduct tests
  2. Decide on treatment method
  3. Decide on type of sperm IUI or ICI
  4. Discuss how many straws to buy per treatment cycle and if a Parent Storage is a good idea

Decide on which criteria are important to you when choosing a donor, as this will make it easier once you start reading the profiles, e.g.

  1. Appearance, e.g. height, weight, skin colour, hair, build etc.
  2. Education
  3. Talents

Make a list of 3-5 favourite donors

  1. Check their availability for all your needs, e.g. siblings

Getting ready to order:

  1. Recheck on your favourite donor
  2. We recommend that you place your order at least 10 business days before the expected arrival date at the clinic to ensure a smooth, stress-free ordering and delivery process. For home insemination, make sure you meet all requirements.
  3. Decide on number of straws
  4. Inform us of treatment date

Treatment

  1. You are almost there – the clinic will take care of you and let us know of the outcome. You are of course welcome to contact us anytime.

Siblings

  1. Are you planning for more than one child? To ensure that your future children will have the same donor and be genetic siblings, we recommend a Parent Storage. Here you can reserve your donor for future use.
  2. On My Page, you can always log in and review your details – including the profile of your purchased donor.

Having a donor child

  1. You are now a parent to a wonderful child. Perhaps, in the future, there will be even more children.. We are available if you have any questions or thoughts. On your blog, you can read other mothers’ stories. If you would like to share yours, please contact us..
