Overview

Sperm Donation can be a better HOPE for Couples with diagnosed severe male infertility leading to disappointment in natural conception and further multiple In vitro fertilization (IVF)/ Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) failure cycles. It is a procedure in which a man other than the intended couple donates the semen sample — the fluid containing sperm that is released during ejaculation — to help an individual or a couple conceive a baby by fertilizing the oocytes.

Donated sperm can be injected into a woman’s reproductive organs (intrauterine insemination) or used to fertilize mature eggs in a lab (in vitro fertilization). The use of donated sperm is known as third-party reproduction and this is one of the most common type of third party reproduction at present. Certainly, this type of third party reproduction has definitely brought several smiles and hopes for couples who are emotionally and financially struggling to conceive.

Before you can donate sperm, you must be screened for medical conditions and other risk factors. It’s also important to understand the possible emotional, psychological and legal issues of sperm donation.

Sperm donor is an anonymous individual to the recipient who has passed the bio-chemical and genetic tests for any kind of abnormalities or diseases or hereditary disorders and have shown the best semen characteristic features when analyzed based on World Health Organization (WHO) criteria. Sperm donations made to a known recipient are called directed donations.

Before donating sperm, one must be screened for medical conditions and other risk factors. It’s also important to understand the possible emotional, psychological and legal issues of sperm donation.
