Before you’re able to get a sperm donation from our clinic, or another sperm bank you will need to register to be a recipient. On average, it takes about 4 to 5 business days to become fully registered, then you will have to choose the qualifications you look for in a sperm donor, so we can match it to the proper donation. Once the match has been made, we will set up a time for pick-up, so you’re able to get the sperm donation. We ask that you be patient during this process, we understand the urgency for some individuals, but we can only work with the donations we have, or wait for donations that meet your qualifications.
Not all male applicants who want to become sperm donors will be chosen, as there is a certain criterion that needs to be met as well as tests that need to be passed before sperm donation can be accepted.
You may be disqualified from being a sperm donor at our clinic if you have the following:
– History in your family of certain diseases (we may go as far back as four generations to look for things like cystic fibrosis, sickle cell anemia, etc.)
– Intravenous drug users
– If you have been to an area that has a high risk of AIDS transmission
Other screening processes that may occur when deciding to become a sperm donor include questionnaires, genetic analysis, specimen screening, blood screening, and physical evaluations. To be more detailed, they may include:
– Interviews about your sexual behavior, why do you want to participate in being a sperm donor, and family background
– Like previously mentioned, we may go as far back as four generations of family history to evaluate if you are a good donor
– Your semen will be analyzed to look for sperm count, motility, and normal sperm morphology
– You will be tested for any infectious disease is including hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, HIV, any STDs, as well as any others
– Genetic testing specifically for cystic fibrosis
– Blood typing for ABO-Rh
The screening process can take anywhere up to six months, as it depends on how fast all of the screening processes and tests can be completed. Sperm donation is quite simple, we will provide a private room that will be stocked for the male, with items to help them masturbate into a sterile container. Once completed the semen sample Will be collected from the sterile container, and we will mix it with a cryo-preservative solution, divide, seal into individual files, and then freeze with liquid nitrogen. Once a match has been found the semen sample will be thawed and provided for artificial insemination.
This will all depend on the clinic you are expected to be a sperm donor, on average sperm donors are paid between $100 to $150 per donation visit. You can donate between 1 to 2 times per week, and earn an average of up to $4000 in six months. However, as stated previously this will depend on the state you are in, the clinic you are excepted at as a sperm donor, and the clinic’s rules around sperm donation per year.
If you are excepted as a sperm donor at our clinic you have the option of being a known donor or an anonymous donor to the recipient of your sperm donation. However, before you can donate your sperm you must be screened and tested for many medical conditions and other risk factors that may be associated with you or your family’s medical history.
Once you have completed all the testing and passed all of the screenings you will be selected as a sperm donor to make a donation. We will let you know the times that are available for you to be booked to come in for donation, and you will be paid for your donation.
