"ms. kramer, the registry's founder, said that one sperm donor on her site learned that he had 70 children. he now keeps track of them all on an excel spreadsheet. "every once in a while he gets a new kid or [color=#004276]twins
," she said. "it's overwhelming, and not what he signed up for. he was promised low numbers of children."
how many inseminations can happen from one "donation"?
from wikipedia: one sample will be divided into 1-20 vials or straws depending on the quantity of the ejaculate and whether the sample is 'washed' or 'unwashed'. following the necessary quarantine period, the samples will be thawed and used to impregnate women through [color=#0645ad]artificial insemination
or other [color=#0645ad]art
treatments. 'unwashed' samples are used for [color=#0645ad]ici
treatments, and 'washed' samples are used in [color=#0645ad]iui
to me, that means that the donor has made many donations. since not every insemination will result in a live birth. taking into account that some of the inseminations will result in multiple live births, the donor that has 70+ children must have made multiple donations.
so, imho, how is this unexpected to the donor?
