Choosing the right sperm donor is an important decision. But it can be overwhelming, especially since we have hundreds of quality donors to choose from. So a good first question to ask is: What is most important to you? Consider both the physical and psychological characteristics you’d like to see in your child including personality, intelligence, sense of humor, and other intangible traits.
Once you consider these things, you can then use one of our many helpful and comprehensive online tools to refine your search.
Using our Online Donor Tool
Overall health is an important factor, of course. But since all our donors are rigorously screened and verified, you can be sure they are all healthy and carefully vetted. So we need to go deeper into detail. And our online donor tool is a great place to start. It allows you to narrow your search by weight, height, ethnicity, skin tone, blood type, and other factors.
You can also search by specific personality traits. Are you looking for someone outgoing and personable? Extremely athletic? How about musically gifted? Or perhaps highly educated or someone within the medical field? We have all of those traits available and more, sometimes within the same donor.
You can also consider our Donor of the Month, who is specially chosen for his range of admirable qualities that can be passed along to your child. Or check out our current list of top 5 sperm donors recommended by our staff.
As you look at our various donor profiles you’ll notice a lot of information is included. That’s because each donor writes an essay and completes a detailed questionnaire covering their personality, family history, life experiences, and temperament. You can also see baby photos of donors, listen to audio interviews, and even access their Keirsey personality test results.
Free Photo Matching Service
If you are seeking a particular look, try our free photo matching service. This is where you send us a short list of your favorite donors from our Donor List along with photographs of the person you’d most like your donor to resemble. Our staff then compares the photos you submit to recent adult photos of our donors, many of which are not available to the public. This usually takes 2-3 days. If there is no obvious photo match, we will then suggest other donors who may be a suitable match for you.
