Artificial insemination is an excellent option for many people, including same-sex couples, single mothers, and couples in which the man has a low sperm count, lack of sperm mobility, or fertility problems.
However, once you have chosen artificial insemination as a method of conception, it is time to choose the right donor. Although you probably do not know your donor personally, you can have a better outcome by properly analyzing donor profiles.
Although there are many criteria when choosing a donor for artificial insemination, it is impossible to establish one that is more important than the others, as it is completely personal. Therefore, we share with you some aspects that you should consider when making your choice.
One of the advantages of going to a donor bank is that you can access information about the physical characteristics of the donor, such as ethnicity, height, hair color and eye color, among others.
It is completely natural and understandable that you want a donor who looks like you or your partner. However, it is also essential that you remember that even if the donor has the traits you are looking for, it is impossible to know what your child’s physical appearance will be once he or she is an adult.
Of course, physical attributes are not the only aspect to consider when choosing a donor for artificial insemination. That is why it is important to go to a clinic that includes personality characteristics in their donor description. This will allow you to get a more complete impression of your donor’s profile.
A good way to think about this is to imagine the intangible characteristics you would like your child to have, such as sensitivity, sense of humor, talents, and intelligence, among others.
It is highly recommended that you discuss with your partner exactly what criteria they’re looking for before going to a sperm bank. By doing so, they will be able to narrow down their search from the beginning.
When you start the search for your donor, look for an option that can guarantee the health status of the donor and the quality of the donated sperm. In this way, you can be sure that your child will grow up completely healthy.
