A Directed Donor (DD) account is for individuals storing sperm for a designated recipient who may or may not be their intimate partner or spouse (such as a friend, partner of a sibling, or surrogate). All stored vials in this account are quarantined for six months and repeat STI testing is required prior to release. Please see Sperm Storage Fees for pricing.
We recommend opening a Directed Donor account for minors (or anyone who is unsure who will carry a pregnancy), as it offers the most flexibility for use in the future and the added safety of the 6 month quarantine. For information regarding storage for a minor, please see Sperm Storage Clients under 18 FAQs.
