Many individuals who may not have otherwise been able to conceive due to male factor infertility or lack of a male partner are able to achieve their dream of becoming a parent via donor sperm insemination. Individuals or couples using donor sperm may choose to use sperm from either a known family member of friend or anonymous donor. For patients who choose to use an anonymous sperm donor, our exclusive partnerships with Seattle Sperm Bank , California Cryobank , and NW Cryobank offer our patients the highest variety of quality sperm donors and unique benefits.

Once retrieved, your eggs will be combined with the donor sperm and the resulting embryos will be transferred back to your uterus for implantation.
Sperm donation is a procedure in which a man donates semen — the fluid containing sperm that is released during ejaculation — to help an individual or a couple conceive a baby. Donated sperm can be injected into a woman's reproductive organs intrauterine insemination or used to fertilize mature eggs in a lab in vitro fertilization. The use of donated sperm is known as third-party reproduction. A man who makes a sperm donation can be known or anonymous to the recipient.
