I want to know that which browser you using when you're surfing this site? I've used FF and Explorer; in explorer when I tried to buy a membership it popped up with a weird security message. Then I tried it in FF and it worked fine. Anyone else have this problem?

If you're doing research into assisted reproduction methods, you will run across the terms artificial insemination and donor insemination, and you may be a little confused. We're going to try and help clarify the terms for you:
Artificial Insemination is the most well-known term to describe insemination via non-natural methods and was used most heavily in the 60s, 70s and 80s. In the 90s it was replaced by the term "therapeutic insemination," though in the 2000s it is still widely known as artificial insemination, or AI.

There are websites that act as "matchmaking" sites for individuals searching for donors, but it is in your best interest to be very, very wary of these sites. They are completely unregulated and don't have to abide by the regulations the FDA requires of sperm banks.
There are no restrictions on the donors, nor any regulations for disease screening, genetic testing, medical exams, three generation medical histories and all the other criteria sperm banks have for their donors.

This is a question we recently received. The answer is no, you can't meet the sperm donors on SpermCenter. We are not a meet-your-donor matchmaking service; we simply collect the donor listings from different sperm banks and publish them in one place for you so you don't have to visit 20 different banks.
Not even sperm banks allow you to meet the donors. The only time a sperm donor can be contacted is by a sperm bank on behalf of the child when the child reaches age 18.
This is done to ensure the privacy of all parties involved.

You can tell if a sperm bank is accredited, and by whom, by checking out SpermCenter's fertility professional listings: http://www.spermcenter.com/sperm_bank_listings. All banks list their accreditations on their websites as well, if they have any, but that will take you more time than just checking out our search. From there you can explore more about the bank in which you're interested.
