Different centers have different criteria, but the following are pretty standard:

  1. You must be between the ages of 18-34. The sperm of young men are better at defrosting than old man sperm.

  2. You must be at least 5'11". That's because almost all mothers-to-be ask for tall donors.

  3. Your weight must be about right for your height. This is because proper weight correlates with healthy sperm.

  4. You must have a high school degree, almost always a college degree, and even more preferably, a JD, BMW, multiple houses, and googobs of money.

  5. You cannot have (or ever have had) hepatitis B, hepatitis C, HIV, ebola, genital herpes, or venereal warts.
