Donor Sperm

In addition to a medical appointment with one of our providers to discuss your medical history, you will also need to meet with a counselor for an educational counseling appointment regarding the donor sperm selection. This appointment will focus on the steps to becoming more knowledgeable about the process. This includes a review of decision making and information about open ID, anonymous, or known donors.

This appointment can be scheduled at your convenience for some time after your first appointment; sometimes this appointment can be accommodated the same day as your initial consultation with your provider. If you are in a committed relationship or married, both individuals must attend. If you are interested in trying to schedule your counseling appointment for the same day as your initial consultation, please ask the schedulers if this is possible when scheduling your initial consultation. Counselors are also available to meet individuals or couples who may be struggling with the process, or would like to discuss this.

To make an appointment, please call (585) 487-3378.
