Founder of Fertility Help Hub, Eloise, openly shares her experiences of her husband’s unsuccessful micro-TESE sperm extraction and their subsequent decision to choose a sperm donor. And whilst Eloise and her husband now have three children via sperm donation, when they were picking a sperm donor they felt “totally overwhelmed”.
A few months before joining FHH as the Writer and Editor, I, Holly, underwent my own fertility treatment and had to choose a sperm donor for embryo freezing. Like Eloise and her husband, I felt almost paralysed by the options available. Eloise sought to find a donor with similar genes to her partner, whereas I was (and still am) completely clueless about the person I’ll end up with – so it was tricky to know where to begin.
Today we turn to Cryos International for advice on what to consider when choosing a sperm donor. (Find out more about Cryos here.)
