To purchase sperm with us, you need to first complete Registration.

If you have reviewed our Donor Catalog and selected a donor, you will need to register to purchase vials. To get started, follow the step-by-step instructions below.

We encourage you to check our donor catalog for donors matching your criteria before registering. While completed registration is required to purchase vials, you do not need to be registered to access our donor catalog online or seek donor details over the phone. Our donor catalog is both diverse and small–recipients will not always be able to purchase vials from their first choice donor. We recommend having backup options available.

Helpful hint

To register, print and fill out the forms provided online, and send completed forms back to us via email, mail or fax. For the Informed Consent, handwritten initials next to each statement and a wet signature are required. All other forms can be signed electronically. We only accept PDF documents via email (not JPEG files). Once all forms are received, including the Annual Medical Professional’s Signature form, you will be registered within 3 to 5 business days.

For families with two or more parents, each person trying to conceive is required to register as a TSBC recipient. However, we only charge one registration fee ($100) per family.

Plan ahead

  • If a donor is listed as “Available Soon”, contact us to add you to a donor’s notification list. This will keep you informed about the donor’s next release date.
  • Purchase vials as early as possible to prevent the donor selling out. We will store vials for at least three months at no additional charge. After that, storage fees are charged for vials that remain at TSBC.
  • We encourage you to read our Improving Your Chances of Conception for more information on age and fertility. This resource contains information helpful for all recipients, regardless of age.
  • Schedule shipments and pickup appointments as early as possible. We are a small bank with limited capacity. Scheduling early gives you the best opportunity to ship or pickup on your schedule.
