How Do I Select a Sperm Donor?

In choosing the best suitable sperm donor — intended parents are provided with detailed information, including a health assessment, social profile, and genetic history. Many donors, while remaining anonymous, provide a photograph as a child and also as an adult.

Whether it is education, athleticism, religion, ethnicity, build, complexion, musicality, facial features, or creativity you are interested in, the LIV Sperm Donation Program has the right donor for you. In addition, some donors have personality tests, audio interviews, and staff impressions for you to review.

Sperm Donor Screening Process

When a potential donor’s semen sample meets the strict count and motility standards, it takes another three months for a donor to become a fully qualified donor. The screening process includes semen and blood samples for laboratory testing and genetic screening.
