How much does donor sperm cost?

It can certainly be overwhelming to understand the costs and procedures associated with selecting, ordering, and shipping your donor sperm vials. Understanding the total costs of how much you will be spending with a sperm bank as part of your journey to conceive can bring you peace of mind, and allow to you more easily plan for the family of your dreams!

Thanks to our efficient processes and many successful years of business, Seattle Sperm Bank continues to offer the lowest prices for vials of all the major sperm banks in the U.S. And we do this while offering the highest quality donor sperm, with a great selection of donors, and the best customer service in the industry. We’d like to help by outlining all the costs associated with our products and services.

Vial pricing:

The prices for both Open Identity donor sperm and Anonymous donor sperm through SSB are:

IUI (washed) – $690 per unit

ICI (unwashed) – $690 per unit

IUI A.R.T.  (washed) – $490 per unit

ICI A.R.T.  (unwashed) – $490 per unit

 For comparison, California Cryobank charges $995 for ICI and for IUI vials, while Fairfax Cryobank charges $895 for ICI and $995 for IUI.

Other major sperm banks also charge a premium for those donors who have had extended genetic testing, though we have chosen to keep vial prices consistent while more testing has become available. For more details on how SSB differs from other sperm banks, see our vial quality and price comparison page.

Shipping Pricing:

For best results, plan to have your vials arrive 2-3 days prior to insemination. Our tanks are guaranteed to hold temperature for at least four days after receipt, so that gives you a buffer in case of a shipping issue or early ovulation. Before your vials arrive, be sure to watch our home insemination kit demonstration video so you’re prepared to properly use your shipment.
