This is a question we received recently from a visitor who was wondering if his insurance would pay the cost of storing his sperm, since he has to undergo chemo and other cancer treatments that may adversely affect his fertility.
The answer is that it depends on the insurance company. Some health insurance plans may cover the cost of part or all of the initial services. Check with your insurance provider and doctor's office staff prior to beginning the banking process.

We understand; we've been there, done that. When you're trying to get pregnant, it feels like all you can do is think, plan and try to conceive. We tend to forget to have fun and take time to breathe, which isn't necessarily a good thing.
If you feel yourself holding your breath, there are some ways you can deal with it. First, understand that no matter what you do, you will be thinking about getting pregnant when you're TTC. That's just the way it is.

Unfortunately, you can't see photos of sperm donors on SpermCenter because most sperm banks don't offer photos of donors for free. It wouldn't be fair to show some photos and not others, nor would it be allowed by the majority of the sperm banks available.
This is why SpermCenter's sperm donor profiles link directly to their original profile on the sperm bank's website. It makes it easy to see your donor's original profile once you select them.

Donor sibling registries are websites for individuals that have used an egg or sperm donor who want to search for donors or siblings.
For sperm donors, there are only a few bank-specific registries and one national donor registry, the "Donor Sibling Registry."
The Donor Sibling Registry is the only national registry in the U.S. Founded by Wendy Kramer and her donor-conceived son Ryan, the registry was created to connect donors and siblings searching for each other.
