The sperm donor profile offered by most banks lists detailed personal info about sperm donors, including family members, personal interests and goals, GPA and SAT scores, military record, religion, hobbies, favorite animals, SAT scores and physical characteristics.
They are often very long (some as many as 20 pages) and are a must-read before you choose a donor.
They are important because they give you a great idea of the donor's personality, habits, interests and all the other information you need to find the right donor for you.

You should know that one of the parts of the donor screening process is a lifestyle risk assessment. This means that a sperm bank talks to a donor about his lifestyle, including sexual habits, drug use, health, physical fitness and more.
Any potential donor who lives a high-risk lifestyle risks being eliminated from sperm banks. High-risk behavior includes drug use, excessive alcohol consumption, too many sexual partners and a number of other criteria determined by the sperm bank.

The decision to use a sperm donor is one of the most important choices you can make. Many people experience different reactions and emotions from family members and friends when they choose to use a sperm donor from a sperm bank or any other way.
Regardless of how your family reacts (or doesn't) the most important thing to remember is that you and your future baby are the most important people to think about; the right choice is the one that works for you.

We recently recieved a question about getting paid for sperm vs. donating it. Different sperm banks have different policies; in the U.S. it is typical to pay sperm donors because of the time and committment required on the part of the donor.
However, sperm donors who want to donate for purely altruistic reasons have options:
1) Most sperm banks will waive payment if the donor requests it.

A new study from Iran suggests women may be able to predict when they will go through menopause, then calculate when their egg stash will begin to dwindle (since this happens approximately fifteen years before a woman goes through menopause).
