Are You Having Infertility?

Have you been diagnosed with no sperm count?

Sperm donation is the process by which a man, known as a sperm donor donates his semen to a recipient via ART semen bank with the intention that it be used to achieve a pregnancy and produce a baby in a woman who is not the man’s sexual partner. Sperm donation is a means of third party reproduction.

  • The male partner has azoospermia, severe oligospermia, or other significant sperm or seminal fluid abnormalities.
  • The male partner has ejaculatory dysfunction.
  • In assisted reproductive technologies (in vitro fertilization, gamete intrafallopian transfer, zygote intrafallopian transfer), the male partner demonstrates significant male factor infertility (i.e., previous failure to fertilize, significant oligoasthenospermia, male immunologic infertility) and in vitro fertilization (IVF) with intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) is not elected or feasible.
  • The male partner has a significant genetic defect and the recipient also is known either to be affected or to be a carrier of it; or the recipient has previously produced an offspring affected by a condition and carrier status cannot be determined.
  • The male partner has an ineradicable sexually transmissible infection.
  • The female partner is Rh-negative and severely Rh-isoimmunized, and the male partner is Rh-positive.
  • Females without male partners.
