My partner and I are just getting started with trying to get pregnant using donor sperm. Though we are a straight couple, we need some outside assistance. However, trying to think about all the options is a little overwhelming.
We live in the UK, so the system here is a little more regulated than in the US, and we’re pretty sure that we want an option where the child/children can contact their donor when they’re 18, if they want to. My question for those of you out there in similar situations who might have used donors or are in same-sex couples that might have also used donor gametes: is there anything we should be thinking about now that might help us later? And, if you feel comfortable sharing, how did you go about narrowing down which donor to use? — Alicia
If you used an anonymous sperm donor, what factors weighed into your decision about whom to choose?
