Frequently Asked Questions

Why do men become sperm donors?

Most donors are interested in both the financial compensation and the opportunity to help couples conceive children.

What is the compensation?

Sperm donors receive $125 for each viable specimen. Donors are expected to produce a specimen at least once per week at our laboratory, but may produce up to every three days.

Why do I need to be a certain height and to have attended college?

Couples who are considering donor insemination want some control over the attributes their child may inherit. Clients who are considering donor insemination tend to want sperm from donors who are on the taller side and who have achieved a certain level of education.

How do I apply or enroll?

To begin the application process, download a PDF of our donor application. You may also contact New England Cryogenic Center to request that an application be mailed to you.

Once New England Cryogenic Center determines that you are a likely candidate for our program, we’ll schedule an appointment with you for your first visit. We provide comfortable and discreet rooms for collecting specimens. You will need to abstain from ejaculation for three days prior to the first appointment. Subsequent appointments may be scheduled Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

What kind of information do you need from me?

Sperm donors are asked to provide physical information such as height, weight, eye and hair color, as well as a complete medical history for you and two previous generations of your family.

How do you select sperm donors?

Sperm donors are selected based on the quality of their sperm and their general health and medical history.

Will I ever have contact with the children who are born using my sperm?

Donors who are not interested in having contact with children born using their sperm will remain anonymous.

How often can I donate?

Donors are expected to produce a specimen at least once per week, but may donate up to every three days.

How long can I be a sperm donor?

The average donor is enrolled in our program for 12-24 months.

Are there any legal consequences to becoming a sperm donor?

The sperm donor has no legal responsibility for, or legal claim to any child born as a result of the use of their donated specimens.
