I have a single vial of cryopreserved sperm available for free to a good home. It's been in storage at our fertility clinic for a while, and we are just not able to afford to keep it anymore. I don't want it to go to waste. It was purchased from California Cryobank last year, and is a fully documented healthy Caucasian ICI sample. We conceived a beautiful, healthy baby boy using other samples from the same donor. You would need to come pick it up from MetroWest Massachusetts in the next couple of weeks and use it shortly thereafter. We paid $500+ for this sample. I will happily provide more info to interested parties.

I know this is a little strange, but I really don't want it to go to waste.

We didn't use CCB, but after our second child we had left-over sperm. We called our bank, and they made a notation that we had some because the donor was retired. Eventually, they were able to facilitate getting it to another family who wanted to try for sibling with the same donor.

Have you checked the DSR or the bank itself? They have have requests for more vials from this donor and its just a matter of making contact.
