Sperm Donation

Sperm donation programs help heterosexual couples, same-sex couples and single women successfully conceive their baby.

Sperm donation Spain provides a wide range of donors from different parts of the world; predominantly recruited among university students and accepted only under strict health and psychological testing and personal guidelines. Donors are screened for exceptional sperm quality and appropriate tolerance to freezing. Donors are also screened against genetic and sexual disease.

The sperm donor may not be a friend or family member, an anonymous donor will be matched to the recipient by the sperm bank or fertility clinic in Spain. Anonymous donors will be selected according to physical characteristics such as ethnicity, skin color and height.

Sperm count is confirmed during testing in which the sample is also frozen and thawed. According to the Spanish Assisted Reproduction Act, samples are stored frozen in quarantine for at least 6 months in order to avoid infectious diseases.

Clinics in Spain provide the newest technology, channeling the highest European storage standards, providing storage guarantee. Spain is a pioneer in the use of sperm donation expertise, which guarantees sperm sample storage safety.

Good Candidates for Sperm Donation

An alternative approach to male factor infertility is using a donor from one of the sperm banks in Spain. IVF clinics in Spain can provide information to aid your search for a donor. Once a donor is identified and the sperm is available, the female would most likely go through an IVF cycle in combination with ICSI.

IVF clinics in Spain offer affordable sperm donation to many couples, single women and couples in same sex relationships the chance to build a family.

Sperm Donation Procedure

The procedure for in vitro fertilization with sperm donation is identical to traditional IVF. Eggs are collected from the woman following a cycle of fertility drugs to induce ovulation. The collected eggs are then fertilized using the donor sperm. ICSI is used in IVF treatments with sperm donation to increase the chance of successful fertilization.

Risks and Side Effects of Sperm Donation

Risks and side effects of sperm donation include tubal (ectopic) pregnancy and multiple pregnancies. If IVF is successful, a normal pregnancy will be carried out. If IVF with sperm donation results in an unsuccessful pregnancy or no pregnancy, different methods of IVF should be considered, such as Embryo Adoption or IUI methods.

Sperm freezing in Spain is used in artificial insemination, in vitro fertilization, and other assisted reproductive procedures. Sperm freezing allows for a process of freezing and storing semen samples so you and your partner may use them to become pregnant in the future.

Sperm Freezing

Storing sperm prior to an IVF, egg donor or IUI cycle ensures the availability of sperm should the male partner have difficulty producing a sample on the day of egg retrieval or should the male not be available to produce a fresh sample due to other medical reasons.

Some men discover they have diseases or must undergo treatment or surgery that will cause permanent sterilization or genetic damage. As cancer detection and treatment techniques improve, more cancer conditions are being detected at younger ages in men, with better and longer survival rates. Therefore, more men in their fertile years are now considering this option.

Good candidates include:

  • In cases of low sperm counts where multiple semen collections may be necessary for use in a single insemination.
  • To preserve semen for deferred inseminations when an intimate partner is temporarily absent
  • Prior to assisted reproductive technologies such as In Vitro Fertilization; to secure a good quality semen specimen for the future procedure.
  • Prior to vasectomy, but still desire to keep a possible option open for the future.
  • Gay couples or single woman may opt for a sperm donor to achieve a pregnancy. The semen is quarantined for a period of time while the donor is screened for infectious diseases.

Methods of Sperm Retrieval

Azoospermia is defined as the absence of mature spermatozoa in a clinical semen analysis (male infertility testing). Different surgical methods such as PESA, TESA, TESE and micro-TESE have been developed to retrieve spermatozoa from either the epididymis or the testes.
