Find a Free Sperm Donor
Becoming a Parent Thanks to Sperm Donors
Across the world sperm banks are experiencing a real shortage of donors, most apparent around Europe, however when you want to find a free sperm donor in the US this is not such a difficult thing. The US is actually seeing an increase in sperm donors of late and being able to find a free sperm donor online through CoParents.com is a smooth, straightforward and simple process.
CoParents.com works kind of like a dating site, except instead of choosing a date you are choosing an online sperm donor! You can browse through our thousands of members to find a sperm donor willing to assist in your journey to parenthood free of charge, unlike in actual sperm banks in the US where donors are actually paid to donate.
We have donors of both genders located around the US and across the oceans so that you will always be able to gain convenience when choosing an online free sperm donor through us. When you find someone you like the look of, maybe their "about me" section drew you in, maybe their wanting to receive matches your wanting to provide - or vice versa - you simply drop them a line. This is where you will introduce yourself and explain what it is you’re looking for, ask any questions you like and check your compatibility based on the reply. If you’re feeling like you’ve been searching for an age, just remember we gain numerous new members every single day and are one of the fasting growing online sperm donation websites, so if your perfect person isn’t here yet, the chances are that they soon will be.
The thought of raising a child alone can be a daunting one and so you would be wise to play devils advocate prior to insemination: If you got ill who would care for the child? If you lost your job or experienced a reduction in income, would you be able to provide for the child? If the child were to be born with any difficulties, or encounter them later on, would you be able to cope alone with this? You have to be realistic with your answers to yourself, this is a lifelong commitment and if you are a single person looking to raise a child through an anonymous donor, you really could be on your own.
For people wanting donors who will co parent the child you need to ensure that you will be compatible with this person, the chances are that you will be pretty close for the next couple of decades at least and so if you don’t get along or have strong opposing views on important subjects this could be very difficult. Things will need outlining in the beginning, such as how much contact the donor will have when the child is raised, how much financial support will be provided and if you or the child were to get ill, how much could you rely on that person to be there immediately for you.
The Getting Pregnant Stage:
You have two choices, natural conception or artificial insemination. Both have advantages and disadvantages, with the artificial insemination being less awkward and easier to conduct but also it can be expensive and the price goes up with the success rate; for example, for a 75% chance of success you could be looking at tens of thousands of pounds. If you are in a couple, the thought of your partner actually having sexual interaction with another could be extremely uncomfortable for you, but it could be the easiest way and much less draining on your finances. Getting pregnant through natural conception has a success rate of around 15% in the first month. A lot will depend on your fertility and monthly cycle of when you are ovulating and at your most fertile.
The choice of how to get pregnant is totally yours. You can view our forums and testimonials to see how other people found their chosen methods for a more informed idea of how things could go for you.

If I’m co-parenting do I need a sperm donor?
Essentially, yes, but whether you are looking for a sperm donor or somebody to share responsibility and upbringing of the child with you will decipher whether you are actually looking for a sperm donor or a co-parent. The forums at coparents.com can help you decide what you are looking for, and also help you to find the right person for you.
What do I need to know from the free sperm donor?
It’s imperative that you get certain details from your sperm donor before you go ahead with insemination, and some details are more important than others.First of all, of course, you need to know what level of involvement your donor wishes to have with the child, and you should agree on this before you move any further forward. Do not agree to the donor being involved in the child’s life if you want to do this 100% by yourself, because you won’t be happy further down the route.You should also ask questions about the donor’s family history, including medical history and fertility if they know details of their fertility rates. The donor may have previously donated or had other children, in which case they should know how fertile they are. It is worth noting if they have had other children because your child will ultimately have unknown siblings that they may end up meet by chance sometime in the future.
How do I get pregnant using a sperm donor?
You can get pregnant via either artificial or natural insemination, and this depends entirely on your preferences. We recommend that you choose artificial insemination as this route provides greater protection against sexual transmitted infections. Natural insemination will give the donor automatic parental rights to the child.
How do I know if the donor is fertile?
If the donor has not previously had other children then you could suggest that they undertake a male sperm test to ensure that they have an adequate sperm count.
What about legal requirements?
You will need to get a written legal donor or co-parenting agreement in place before you even organise the insemination process. This agreement should set out all of the aspects of how much or how little the donor will be involved in the child’s life after insemination.
Whose name is on the birth certificate?
Your name will automatically be on the birth certificate, but you should only put your donor’s name on there if you and he both want him to have involvement with the child. If you decide to co-parent with your donor, they should be on the birth certificate and that will effectively mean that they are the child’s legal father.
