Sperm donation is the process in which a male donates his sperm to enable another person or couple to conceive through assisted reproductive technology. Sperm donors can be anonymous or known (a relative or friend).
Donor sperm is commonly used by:
- Males who have an absence of sperm in their semen (Azoospermia)
- Males who have a low sperm count, poor sperm motility and/or abnormal sperm morphology
- Males with genetic abnormalities
- Same-sex female couples
- Single female patients
The Main Line Fertility third party reproduction team is experienced in working with patients to choose the right sperm donor for them (known or anonymous) They will be available throughout the selection process to answer questions and offer assistance to a recipient or known donor.
Anonymous Sperm Donor
Our third party reproduction team has extensive experience working with many top sperm banks throughout the United States and abroad. Sperm banks offer pre-screened frozen specimens. The sperm can be purchased from these banks and shipped to our state-of-the-art inhouse laboratory where we are able to store the sperm until the patient is ready to use it.
Known Sperm Donor
Our third party reproduction team will assist known donors with obtaining the required screening and testing established by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and American Society of Reproductive Medicine (ASRM).
