is available for each donor. All of this information is available to you
when you are selecting which sperm donor to use.
Please note: When selecting donor sperm from the sperm bank, please choose
only frozen samples. At Palm Beach Fertility Center, we only use frozen
samples for patient safety.
Donor Sperm is Prepared for Treatments at Palm Beach Fertility Center
Once you have selected your donor and purchased the sperm samples, the
sperm bank will ship the vials to our fertility clinic within a week of
your scheduled procedure.
The Palm Beach Fertility Center team will thaw the sperm samples in our
lab and prepare them on the day of your IUI procedure or IVF lab fertilization.

and baby. If this is your choice please make an appointment to discuss
the known sperm donor process with Dr. Denker.
