How To Donate Sperm

By Mantle Tanner



Each year thousands of couples seek medical advice about their failure to conceive. One in six couples will consult a doctor over possible infertility at some stage and some will be referred to experts in the field of reproductive medicine. Sperm problems are the single most common cause of sub fertility and they affect about one-third of infertile couples.



Sperm donor and recipient are usually anonymous to each other.  However, a recipient may receive non-identifying details about the donor such as height, weight, hair color and education.  Lobbyists in many modern countries include New Zealand and United Kingdom are trying to make donors’ personal disclosure information available to their recipients.   However, in United States, donors are still anonymous.


Sperm Bank

The sperm banks in the United States are regulated by the FDA.  Also, each state has different regulations regarding sperm storage. Sperm donors are subjected to rigorous tests for virus/diseases, such as HIV, Syphilis, Gonorrhea, Hepatitis B & C, and others.

The sperm is stored for a minimum of 6 months in a freezer to ensure the sperm is healthy before it is sold to recipient. Unhealthy sperm does not survive this process. As a result, you may be asked to provide multi samples.
