Alyse Mencias, clinic relations manager at Seattle Sperm Bank

Using donated sperm is an effective option for some individuals and couples wanting to start a family, but there are plenty of questions about sperm banks, and this week we provide answers! Join Dr. Carrie Bedient from The Fertility Center of Las Vegas, Dr. Abby Eblen from Nashville Fertility Center and Dr. Susan Hudson from Texas Fertility Center for a lively and informative question-and-answer session with Alyse Mencias, clinic relations manager at Seattle Sperm Bank. Alyse, who has a master’s in reproductive and clinical science, explains who donates sperm, why they donate and the vital health, genetic and psychological screenings that Seattle Sperm Bank requires. Alyse also details what types of traits prospective parents might consider, the age requirements for donors, and why the transparency of open identity (open ID) for sperm donors and offspring born from sperm donation is important to understand.
