Donor Sperm Program

Infertility affects an estimated one in six couples. Many couples can be treated using conventional in vitro fertilisation (IVF), but donor sperm may be required in some cases of severe male infertility where there is a failure of sperm production or where there is a serious medical or genetic condition.

Donating sperm is a generous act that will enable others to fulfil their dream of having a family. For many individuals and couples, using donor sperm is their only chance of having a family. Potential sperm donors are adequately counseled, screened for blood and semen, a thorough medical assessment is done and semen quarantined.
