Sperm Banks

Updated: Nov 23/13


NB. Be sure to read Trying to Decide which Sperm Bank to Use? which details users' personal experiences.

Single and lesbian women sometimes have difficulty accessing treatment; however, in most large urban centres, marital status &/or sexual orientation are not obstacles.
