Eggs donation/sperm

Sperm donation

Sperm donation

The use of donor sperm is recommended in couples facing enduring problem with the male partner’s fertility. This concerns the absence of sperm in the ejaculate (azoospermia) or when the partner is a carrier of a genetic disease. Sperm donation is strictly anonymous on both sides.

Donated sperm cannot be used to fertilize a woman who does not have a male partner.

The principle of sperm donation

The sperms are frozen and stored in quarantine for 180 days, after which tests for infectious and sexually transmitted diseases are performed once again. The sperms can actually be used for donation only if negative results are confirmed.

Do you want to become a sperm donor?

After 180 days of quarantine and in case of negative results of repeated tests, the sperm is used to fertilize the oocytes of the couple who requested the donation.
