Ricardo

My personal characteristics I would say are: My black humor and love to laugh – I am an open and friendly person who sincerely wants the best for everyone and has no malicious intentions or ulterior motives. I would describe myself as introverted in the sense that I get my energy charged up by being by myself, but at the same time have always been good in social settings and am not introverted as a person. I was voted ”Best Mate” in primary, secondary and high school, so have always found it easy to ”fit in”.

What is your diet like?

I started learning about nutrition when I was 16-17 and it is an important part of my life today. On the other hand,I also have a sweet tooth and am not fanatical about my diet. I try to eat healthy and varied, so my diet consists of: Meat (5 days a week), rice/ pasta/potatoes and always vegetables. I am bad at eating breakfast, but if I do it is usually rye bread. Rarely eat gravy or white bread. If I have to eat something unhealthy, it is usually chocolate or biscuits.

Hobbies and interests

Which sports do you like to participate in?

I have always loved ball sports and it has always been natural for me. I have played football since I was 5 years old and still play on a team. However, the team is mostly made up of friends and it’s more for exercise and fun. Played football at a high level until I was 17. Have played or still play: Basketball, football, badminton, padel, tennis, squash, golf and table tennis. Within the last year I have taken up a martial art, Brazilian Jiu- Jitsu, which I really enjoy. I started it to try something completely different and at the same time learn self-defence.

What are your hobbies and interests?

My hobbies are music, movies/TV, sports, friends/family, cooking, games and travel. I’m probably most interested in travel. As described before, I am a curious person and would like to experience as much of the world as possible in my lifetime. Get- ting to see new places, meet new people and experience different cultures is the second biggest interest in my life. My biggest and most important interest is the well-being of my friends and family..

Questions for donor

Describe your personality

My personal characteristics I would say are: My black humor and love to laugh – I am an open and friendly person who sincerely wants the best for everyone and has no malicious intentions or ulterior motives. I would describe myself as introverted in the sense that I get my energy charged up by being by myself, but at the same time have always been good in social settings and am not introverted as a person.

How would your friends and family describe you?

The goofy one who doesn’t like deep conversations but is able to have them if necessary. The one who is always willing to help, but has a hard time asking for help himself. The one who doesn’t shout the loudest in company, but isn’t afraid to speak his mind. The one who can sometimes be confrontational if he’s not happy with the way things are being done. I think they would describe me as a good friend and family member, but not necessairly the most open and loving verbally, more in action.

Describe some of your best experiences

Some of my best experiences have clearly occured while I’ve been on longer trips alone. I have always been curious and had the desire to meet other people and

cultures. So my best experiences are for example: Living in a small village on the Mekong River in Laos for two weeks. Going to New York for three months and staying with a foreign family I met through the internet. Falling in love with a Danish girl I met by chance on a beach in Koh Samui and then travelling around with her for a month. Most of my best experiences have in common that they were not planned, but that I had the freedom and the desire to go with it.

How would you describe yourself as a friend?

The goofy one who doesn’t love the deep conversations but is able to have them if needed. The one who is always willing to help you if possible. The one who stands up for you if you’re not able to do so yourself.

What does friendships mean to you?

Friendship means a lot to me. I’ve never had many friends, but the few friendships I have now are as close as anything can be. People I’ve known for fifteen plus years that I can trust and who can trust me.

What is your biggest goal or dream in life? My biggest dream and goal in life is to not regret too many things I didn’t do during my life. My biggest dream is to be able to look back at things I have done or tried in the past and think: ”At least I tried”, ”At least I went for what I wanted”.

Cognitive profile

Intelligence is a very general mental capability that, among other things, involves the ability to reason, plan, solve problems, think abstractly, comprehend complex ideas, learn quickly and learn from experience. It is not merely book learning, a narrow academic skill, or test-taking smarts. Rather, it reflects a broader and deeper capability for comprehending our surroundings- “catching on”, “making sense” of things, or “figuring out” what to do. Ability measured in youth has a positive association with most occupational, educational, health, and social outcomes later in life.

Donor Ricardo has an IQ of 110, which puts him in the "normal" category.

Having a normal IQ means the donor has the reasoning and problem-solving skills of a normal person. In the case of our donors, we use the people in the job market to define a “normal” person.

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the process for purchasing sperm from your sperm bank online?

Purchasing sperm from our online store is a simple process. First, you'll need to create an account on our website. Once you've registered, you can browse our selection of available sperm donors.

Each donor has a detailed profile that includes information such as physical characteristics, medical history, and personal interests. You can filter donors based on your preferences and choose the one that best matches your needs.

Once you've made your selection, you can place an order online and make the necessary payment. We'll then ship the sperm sample to your chosen fertility clinic or medical facility for insemination. Our team is available to answer any questions you may have throughout the process.

Do you provide any guarantees or refunds if the sperm sample doesn’t result in a successful pregnancy?

You will be able to get a refund on your purchased straws if they are still in our stock. Once they have been shipped, it is not possible to send them back, as the product and the shipment process are not suitable for returns. However, your fee for the pregnancy quota will be reimbursed in case of an unsuccessful pregnancy.

 

You can read more about our terms and conditions here on our website.

What criteria do donors have to meet?

At Donor-Network, we have the most comprehensive screening process on the market. We require the following of each donor:

  • They must be between the ages of 18 and 45
  • They must pass our extensive medical, genetic and personal screening process
  • Our staff must feel comfortable about recommending them to their own patients
  • They must have a clean criminal record
  • They must have an IQ score within the normal range or above
  • They can not become a sperm donor if they have previously donated sperm at another sperm bank
  • They can not become a sperm donor if they were adopted or a donor-conceived child themselves, as we require a comprehensive understanding of their family’s medical history.

We also require for them to undergo personal meetings and consultations with our therapist. This all makes it possible for us confidently recommend each donor to our own patients.

Can I see donor profiles or receive non-identifying information about donors?

Here on our web page, we have a wide selection of donors, that you can view. In the profiles you will find their family history, personal characteristics, baby and adult photos, voice recording, personality and IQ test, psychological evaluation, our impression of the donor and much more.

Is the donor's medical history available?

Yes. We make a medical summary of each donor, describing their results from the medical and genetic screening. In this document, you’ll find the donor’s medical history as well.  

How many straws of sperm should I consider purchasing for my desired family size?

Our general rule of thumb is to secure 2-3 straws for one child, depending on your individual choice of method and your age. We always recommend consulting your fertility-provider if you are unsure.

 If you want to have two children using the same donor, you should consider purchasing double and have it stored with us until you’re ready for the next child. We also offer the option to use a donor exclusively for your family. This way, you will make sure, that your future child won’t have any other donor siblings.

Can I choose specific physical or personal characteristics for the donor?

We have a wide selection of donors on our website, carrying a wide variety of physical and personal characteristics. Using our filter system, you can find the donors that match your wishes the most and compare them to each other in the comfort of your home.

What is the cost of purchasing donor sperm, and are there any additional fees?

The price depends on the type of donor and the quality of the sperm – In the donor overview it is easy to find the price for each donor and their straws of various qualities.

Additional fees may include shipping or storing of sperm, pregnancy quota or any additional services such as our exclusive donor service.

Is there a possibility of having siblings with the same donor in the future?

Yes. If you acquire a quota on your desired donor, you will always have the right to use the same donor.

However, if your desired donor’s straws are out of stock you will not be sure you can buy further straws. You can consider our exclusive donor service. With that, you make sure that your chosen donor will not be used to inseminate any other family, securing the stock of their straws.

Do you offer any counseling or support services for individuals or couples considering donor sperm?

At Donor-Network we are always here to help. We offer free non-binding meetings where you can ask all the questions you need, and we are always happy to discuss your concerns regarding your choice of starting a family with donor sperm.

What happens if I want to change donors after starting the process?

It will be possible to change your mind at any time before your insemination. Although, you will only get a refund on your purchased straws if they are still in our storage. Once they have been shipped, it is not possible to send them back, as the product and the shipment process are not suitable for returns.

 

You can read more about our terms and conditions here on our website.

What happens if the donor becomes unavailable in the future?

If the donor becomes unavailable in the future, it’s likely because they reached their limit of pregnancies, or their straws are out of stock. Therefore, we recommend that you secure your desired amount of sperm from the donor, and have it stored for when you’re ready for your child or second child.

Can I use my own doctor for insemination, or do I have to work exclusively with your clinics?

We ship to any health professional, so you can work with whomever you like.
