How to Navigate Through the Cryos Donor Search
Navigating through the Cryos International Sperm & Egg Bank donor search is the first step to finding the donor of your dreams. Hundreds of frozen sperm donors and egg donors of different ethnicities and backgrounds are available on our website. It is important to know the tools and icons and use them correctly for the best results. View the steps below to begin your donor search.
Note: For best results, use a laptop or desktop computer.
Steps to Choosing Your Donor
Step (1) – Search sperm donors or egg donors:
Go to usa.cryosinternational.com and click on ‘Donor Search’ located in the top left corner of the page. Once clicked, a list of all our sperm donors and egg donors will appear. Click the icon saying either ‘Donor Sperm’ or ‘Donor Eggs’ – depending on what you are searching for. Below is a screen shot of what it should look like at the beginning of step 1:
Step (2) – Select your country and filter donors:
If you select ‘Donor Sperm’, the first thing you need to do is change ‘Country of residence’ and ‘Country of treatment’ to USA (or the country you are located in). Completing this step is important to being able to select your donor, add them to the basket and see their pricing, as well as other important details later on in your search. If you select ‘Donor Eggs’, this step does not apply.
Our filter is a selection of search tools that is offered to help narrow down your donors based on qualities that interest you, such as race, height, anonymity, and more. Want to revisit a donor you like or have heard of before? You can search by donor name/number. These search fields are optional; choose one, several or none, then let our search engine generate your results. Try not to add too many filter options at once, or you will narrow the field too much and may miss out on a great donor.
Take a look at the screenshot below for where to change your ‘Country of residence’ and ‘Country of treatment’, as well as where our filters are located.
Step (3) – See donor information:
To see more information about a donor that interests you, click the ‘see details’ button. A basic description of the donor, pricing and donor stock (how many straws we have) availability is now visible. Further information is available by clicking on the six icons (circled below) located under the donor name.
The icons represent:
- Speaker/audio icon: Hear the voice of the donor
- Camera icon: See photos of the donor
- Document icon: See the donor’s extended profile, which includes family health history and a handwritten letter
- Speech bubble icon: See our staff impression of the donor
- Heart icon: See the results of the donor’s Emotional Intelligence test
- Star icon: See if the donor has been purchased yet – if the icon is greyed out, the donor has been purchased before. If it is the same color as the rest, the donor has not been purchased and you have the option to have exclusivity over the donor. The donor not being purchased yet likely means this is a newly released donor.

Step (4) – Purchasing your donor:
When you have selected your sperm or egg donor, you will see the chart visible under the donor profile. Determine which type and quantity of sperm/eggs you want to purchase or reserve. Type in the number of straws you would like to purchase under the ‘Purchase’ or ‘Reserve’ column next to the appropriate row of sperm/eggs you need. Learn more about reserving straws here. Click the ‘Add to Basket’ button on the bottom right side of the screen. (see below)
A pop-up should then appear confirming your order, you may then decide to continue shopping or proceed to checkout.
