We're in the middle of trying to choose a sperm bank and we're having significant issues. We ruled out NW because they don't do genetic testing and they don't guarantee their numbers (both of which are important to us). We've been looking at Cryogenic and DW has had her heart set on this place because they're affordable and they give you almost all of the pictures, including baby pictures, for free. But we found out today that our RE doesn't recommend using them. His office says they've had issues. Their preferred banks are: Fairfax, Xytex, and Cryobiology.
The former has horrid reviews online, DW thanks the middle one is too commercial, and the latter is too expensive. All of them are too expensive unless we buy their discounted vials. So, now I don't know what to do.
Donor sperm is worth its weight in gold (literally) but, even discounting the money, we're looking at a massive investment of time and emotions. So, how do you choose a bank?
