With the development of intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), many infertile couples lost hope of conceiving short of a donor, but are now able to imagine their dreams coming true.

However sperm donation is still needed in other areas of Surrogacy.

Who Benefits from Sperm Selection?

Single women and lesbian couples who desire children benefit from donor sperm to help achieve the family they have always dreamed of.

Some Intended Fathers are unable to afford healthy sperm samples for IVF or ICSI. Intended Parents then look to use a sperm donor imperatively to avoid passing on an innate disease or condition.

How do I Choose a Sperm Donor?

Intended Parents and individuals who require the help of a sperm donor can either ask a friend or relative to donate sperm (known donor) or purchase sperm from a sperm bank (anonymous donor).

Donor Screening

All sperm donors undertake demanding medical exams to ensure their sperm is healthy. Donors are screened twice for numerous infectious and genetic diseases comprising of HIV, syphilis, gonorrhea, chlamydia and hepatitis. Sperm is frozen and put in isolation for six months and then tested again to preclude diseases that can yield up to six months before appearing in test results.

The IVF procedure

Fertility medications prepare your eggs for harvesting. After the retrieval stage, the eggs will be united with the donor sperm and any resultant embryos will be transferred.

What is the Process of Sperm Selection?

Sperm Selection is based on the donor’s physical characteristics, ethnic and/or racial background, education level and career. Intended Parents can select a donor that is close to their spouse's genetics or select a donor by criteria that is close to their favorite celebrity or athlete.

It is important to choose a donor that meets all of your important criteria.

Whether it is occupation, athleticism, religion requirements, ethnicity, build, skin tone, musicality, facial features, or even height you are interested in (or any combination), sperm donor programs have a special individual that is perfect for your needs.
