Age Limits and Other Sperm Donor Qualifications

Age Limits and Other Sperm Donor Qualifications

Potential sperm donors must meet certain qualifications to join Phoenix Sperm Bank’s program.  However, some of our qualifications are often misunderstood by potential sperm donors. To help you understand why we need certain information, here are the reasons behind five questions included in our online donor application.  Are You Between 18 and 39? Our donor program has an age limit of 39 years. Why? Because, as people age, both sperm and egg quality can decrease. And since each sample will be frozen, which can further decrease the number of motile sperm by 50%, it’s important to get sperm samples of

Evolution of Sperm

The Evolution of Sperm

Does size matter? When talking about sperm, recent research suggests that it might. According to a study published in the journal Nature Ecology & Evolution, the size of sperm may be affected by where it fertilizes the female’s egg. All sexually reproducing species create sperm to fertilize eggs. But it turns out the size of sperm can range dramatically because they are among the most diverse cells in animals, including humans. To test how sperm size changes over time, evolutionary biologists compared the behavior of sperm in external fertilizers with those of internal fertilizers. External fertilizers include animals like fish,

The Covid Vaccine and Sperm Health — What We Know Now

The Covid Vaccine and Sperm Health — What We Know Now

According to a new study, sperm count and quality did not decrease for healthy men who received the first or second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccines. The findings, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association in June 2021, provide evidence that it is highly unlikely that immunization from these two sources compromises male fertility.  The research only applied to vaccines based on mRNA platforms, which Pfizer and Moderna both used. The Johnson & Johnson and AstraZeneca vaccines are based on different genetic material, so were not part of this study. Still, experts say that all

How Cleaning Products Can Impact Fertility

Since many of us use common cleaning products on a daily basis, it can be easy to overlook their potential negative effects. While most cleaning and disinfecting products are safe at low levels of exposure, those known as endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs), which are in some products, can harm fertility in men and women. These include widely used compounds such as Bisphenol A, phthalates, and parabens, which clinical research has shown to affect sperm production and decrease overall sperm health. To help you mitigate the potential risks of EDCs, we suggest taking the following actions. Buy organic produce. Choosing organic fruits

Why is male fertility decreasing?

Why is Male Fertility Decreasing?

Currently, more than 80 countries, including the U.S., have birth rates below the population replacement level of 2.1 births. By 2050, it is expected that 75% of all nations will have a birth rate that is lower than population replacement. At the same time, the number of births per person has declined from 5 in 1964 to 2.4 in 2018. There are multiple reasons for the decline in births and contributing factors include people choosing to have smaller families, changing cultural norms, having kids later in life, and the rising costs of raising children. But there may also be a

How stress affects sperm health

How Stress Affects Sperm Health

Let’s face it: 2020 boosted anxiety levels for virtually everyone. But stress is a part of life during less difficult times, too. Yet even when we are experiencing stress, its effects can be difficult to measure. A recent study co-sponsored by the Danish Ministry of Health set out to measure the effects of psychological stress on male fertility specifically. The purpose of the study was to find any possible connections between stress and testicular function among a group of 1,362 men with the median age of 19. The study included semen and blood samples as well as a questionnaire that

Does marijuana affect sperm health?

How Does Marijuana Use Affect Sperm Health?

In November 2020, residents of Arizona voted to approve Proposition 207, which legalized the possession and use of marijuana in the state. New Jersey, South Dakota, and Montana passed similar legislation this year, bringing the total number of states where marijuana is legal to 15. At Phoenix Sperm Bank, we regularly get questions from donors and potential donors about how pot affects sperm count and overall sperm health. And now that it’s legal in Arizona, more men may be wondering the same thing. So we’ve looked at the latest studies and reports to help you better understand the possible connections
