The first step is to pick a sperm donor. The sperm donor can be a family friend, relative (of the other female partner), or from a sperm bank. Neway works very closely with the best sperm banks all over the country and can help guide you in this selection process.
Regardless of the sperm donor source, each sperm donor is screened extensively for infectious diseases according to FDA guidelines, as well as genetic screenings and a brief medical and family history is obtained. The sperm is then quarantined for six months to minimize risk of infection to you. If the sperm is from a qualified sperm bank then the six month quarantine process and screening has already been completed.
