We offer free donor profiles for each donor. These free profiles summarize each donor’s medical and family history, and include their short personal narrative as well as a staff impressions written by TSBC staff. We also have extended profiles for each donor and childhood photos for many of the donors. You can purchase the extended profiles and photos through the catalog by clicking on the individual donor card, then clicking the green “buy full profile” button and following the steps. They are $40 each and include the free profile, a social questionnaire in the donor’s own handwriting and baby photos if available. The extended profile will be emailed to you. The free profiles are accessible at any time from the donor catalog.
TSBC donors go through a comprehensive donor screening process including STI testing, medical exams, genetic counseling and testing, implications counseling, and other screening interviews.
Please note that the Yes or No for Pregnancies depends on how long a donor has been on the catalog, number of vials retrieved and type of conception method used. It does not speak to the donor’s ability to achieve pregnancies.
CMV is a common a virus that can cause birth defects. An estimated 40% to 90% of adults have experienced CMV infection and test positive for CMV antibodies—even if they are no longer infectious and didn’t know they ever had the virus. Our screening process aims to identify and screen out donors who are positive for an active infection. Donors
We make every effort to provide inventory to families who wish to have more than one child with the same donor’s assistance. However, we are unable to guarantee the availability of sibling inventory. If you are interested in sibling inventory please inquire with a phone counselor. You may also review our current sibling catalog. Please note: The best way to ensure access to the same donor is to purchase vials and store them at TSBC until you are ready to try to conceive again.
