A Known Donor (KD) 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 or partner of a sibling). A KD account should be opened when the need is time-sensitive, for example, the age of the recipient or the donor is traveling from out of state. Please see Sperm Storage Fees for pricing.
This account is similar to a Directed Donor except this account waives the recommended 6 month quarantine. Instead, for a KD account, STI testing must be completed within 7-days each sample collected.
Waiving of the quarantine period has to be approved by our Medical Director after reviewing the screening documents and physical exam. Our Medical Director will require the 6 month quarantine if the information provided shows a higher risk of disease transmission. Additionally, some fertility clinics will not accept vials that have not been quarantined. Please verify with your medical provider that waiving the quarantine is an option.
