Donor Sperm

Couples use donor sperm (DI) when the husband or partner has no sperm,  or a very poor semen analysis (azoospermia, oligospermia, poor motility). DI is used also when there is a genetic problem which could be inherited from the male. Single women who want a biological child also use DI.

This sperm is used through IVF or intrauterine insemination for the purpose of pregnancy.

Who may need donor sperm:

  • Single women
  • Men with no sperm (as a result of infection, vasectomy or surgical trauma)
  • Men with low sperm counts
  • Men with poor sperm motility
