5 Things To Know Before You Donate Sperm
College men looking for an easy way to pick up some quick cash may want to consider visiting a sperm bank, but if you're serious about being accepted there are 5 things to know before you donate sperm. Not just anyone is accepted to a sperm bank so the below tips are best heeded if you're serious about having a shot at getting accepted as a sperm donor. Every sperm bank has their own entry criteria before they'll accept you as a donor but the below are pretty much industry standard requirements which must be met in order to be a sperm donor.
- You will need to be between the ages of eighteen and forty four. Some sperm banks will only accept donors who are no older than thirty five so, if you're an older man, check with the age requirement before being disappointed. If you're outside the age range for one sperm bank, don't give up. Contact other sperm banks in your area.
- Another thing to know before you donate sperm is that you will not be accepted to their donor program if you were adopted. The reason for this requirement is that sperm banks need to know about any famiiial illnesses and, if you're adopted, there's a good chance that you don't know your genetic background.
- Most sperm banks require sperm donors to make more than just one donation once in a while. Some sperm banks require a sperm donation four to six times each month and have a six month requirement.
- Most sperm banks will pay between $25 and $50 cash for each donation so you're not going to get rich being a sperm donor. Beside the easy cash though, you will possibly be helping a previously infertile couple have a child.
- One very important thing to know about becoming a sperm donor is that your blood will be tested and there must not be even a trace of illegal drugs. A full panel of blood work will check your liver (for liver damage or poisoning), so, if you're big into cocktails or drugs, find another easy way to make money.
