Alexandra & Gabrielle

We chose Xytex after googling a few different banks! The other banks didn’t offer free previews & you had to pay which we didn’t like. When we found Xytex, we knew it was the bank for us.

My wife and I live in North Carolina. I’m a stay at home mom, and my wife is an architect. We started searching for our perfect donor after we got engaged in June of 2018. We knew we wanted to start our family shortly after getting married. My wife has PCOS, so we already knew that IVF was going to be our best route. We were so lucky that our first IVF cycle worked! My wife & I leaned on each other during the entire search process and pregnancy. We found a donor we thought was perfect for us & then after doing some testing, found out that he wasn’t compatible with my wife. We spent hours searching & after 7 hours, we found the ONE!! We wanted our donor to be compatible with the both of us, as we wanted our kids to share some DNA. We chose Xytex after googling a few different banks! The other banks didn’t offer free previews & you had to pay which we didn’t like. When we found Xytex, we knew it was the bank for us. We liked that we could easily find a donor based on the features we wanted. We liked that you can see baby & adult photos, had the option for anonymous or Donor ID, as well as the written essays & audio recordings. Xytex had the best selection & features for the price! When looking for our donor, we wanted someone that had a mixture of features from the both of us, since we both planned on carrying. We also needed a CMV negative donor. Our advice to others? Be patient, know your must-haves, but be willing to let go of features that aren’t as important to you. Don’t give up! We’d recommend Xytex because we felt they had the best selection of donors, a very friendly staff & were easy to work with. After we purchased, we waited about a month before our procedure. We were able to create 7 beautiful embryos. 4 months later, we got married, and 2 months after that, we transferred 2 embryos into my wife. Both embryos stuck, & we were blessed with healthy twins. Next summer, we plan to inseminate me at home with our next vial of sperm. We want a big family & we’re so thankful to Xytex for being a huge part of allowing that to happen!
