Basic or Extended Profile
As a sperm donor, you must decide if you want to have a Basic or an Extended Profile. This applies regardless of whether you choose to be an Anonymous or Non-Anonymous sperm donor. Deciding what type of sperm donor you want to be is a personal decision that only you can make.
Sperm Donors With a Basic Profile
Sperm donors with a Basic profile are registered including only the following characteristics: Race, ethnicity, eye color, hair color, height, weight, blood type and profession/education. If you choose to register with a Basic profile, no further action or additional information is required. We will then register your characteristics at your first medical examination.
Sperm Donors With an Extended Profile
Sperm donors with an Extended profile are registered with additional details including background, physical characteristics, education, profession, personality, health and family history, photos, handwritten greeting, voice sample, staff impression, and EQ tests. If you choose to have an Extended profile, you will complete an additional form after you have been approved for a medical examination.
You should include photos and a handwritten greeting with your form. The photos will preferably be from when you were between nine and twelve months. Later photos are also acceptable but only up to and including ten years of age. All files should include your ID Number in the file name. You personally deliver or send original photos (which will be returned) with your ID number written on the back. We will also record an audio file of you reading your handwritten greeting.
A staff impression is a brief subjective description of you, written by a staff member at your Cryos location.
You Can Decide Which Profile You Want
What profile type you choose is entirely up to you. However, we are seeing increased demand for sperm donors with an Extended profile and Non-Anonymous sperm donors in particular, which is why we are especially interested in hearing from candidates for this group. If you are in doubt about which category to choose, you are welcome to call and ask/discuss or stop by for an informal chat.
Be advised that if you choose to be registered with an Extended profile, you cannot change to a Basic profile at a later date or vice versa.
