Anyone heard of cryos international denmark sperm bank?

:hi: all

I'm new to the donor section (well newish to FZ alltogether)

I am looking to do IUI with donor sperm, However the clinic I am hoping to do treatment at hasn't got a sperm bank and initially advised me to look at European sperm bank.

I had a look at ESP along with Cryos international Denmark. I havn't seen many ( just 1 i think) posts about cryos and was wondering if anyone had used them?

If so how do you about orering/buying sperm from them? Has anyone travelled to denmark to pick sperm up from the sperm bank itself? (if this is possible)

Just out of curiousity, do Cryos sell to individuals (privately) or would I need to get the sperm sent to a clinic?

I found some info on the net about ESB and I was advised that they wouldn't sell privately and only deliver to clinics, so I was wondering if Cryos was the same?

I have been on cryos's website and they have a section for private patients and another for clinic patients, I was wondering if this meant they would sell to individuals privately Ie, deliver to home address or allow you to go over to denmark and pick it up. ?(

The reason why I ask is I have noticed a few people have done IUI at home (IUI home kits) and was wondering where you could get sperm for such a thing, sperm that has been tested, washed, screened etc. Not sure if I would or going to use an IUI home kit, Just enquiring to see what its about

Hiya, Hun
As far as I know there are international laws with regards to the transport of human tissues (and this includes sperm) which stipulate that tissues may only be transfered in stipulated containers and have to be delivered to a medical professional who is correctly trained to use said tissue - so sperm to fertility clinics or specialists so you can't ask a friendly nurse or GP to take delivery and hand it over to you. Basically this means that, while you would order and pay for the sperm, you will have to use the services of a clinic to have the treatment.

People who do home insemination generally use fresh sperm handed over by the donor to be instilled immediately - so sometimes couples will do this or a woman with a man she knows and trusts to not have any nasties to infect her with. I personally would not consider this an option at all but each person needs to decide for themselves whether this is the route they wish to go.

Good luck and let us know how you get on...

Hi Rene and Galway Girl, thanks for your reply :)

Yeah I didn't think you could get it sent to your door, and have been told by a lot of people about laws etc,

I'm the same with you Rene I wouldn'nt do it at home anyway, was just curious if it was possibly.

The other thing that made me ask was Cryos has an option for you to pick sperm up at their clinic in Denmark at a cost of approx 25 euro. How would that work though? how would they know you were going to pick it up and take it to a clinic? or is the pick up option only available to clinics, medical professions etc?

I would consider picking it up from denmark and taking it to my clinic myself as it works out cheaper than UK delivery, even including flights etc! but I'm not sure if this is possible?
