Sperm Donor

Sperm is the male reproductive cell or the male-impregnating fluid. Sperm combines with a female’s eggs to complete the reproductive cycle, and then the embryo gets implanted in the uterus of the female’s body. Sperm cells have a very limited lifespan and cannot divide. Still, after fusion or the process of reproduction, it fuses with egg cells and leads to the beginning of the development of a baby. During Sperm Donation, a male (sperm donor) donates semen, the fluid containing sperm. It is released during ejaculation and is the male reproductive cell to help an individual female or a couple to conceive a baby.

Sperm donation has been preferred as it is a harmless method that can easily help people conceive successfully. In this, a healthy male is asked to ejaculate his semen in order to collect sperm in a clinical environment. In particular, there are no health risks or consequences of sperm donation.

Factors Considered for Selecting Sperm Donor

Various factors, enlisted below, are evaluated before being selected as a sperm donor.

  • Age – Most sperm banks and fertility clinics have specified that the donors should belong to the age group of 18 to 39. In a few cases, the maximum age is 39 also. 
  • Genetic Testing – These tests are done in order to find out if you carry any abnormalities or diseases genetically that might affect the child. 
  • Semen Testing – To become a sperm donor, several factors like sperm count, motility, and overall morphology are evaluated and analysed.
  • Medical & Sexual History – In this, details about the medical history of the previous two generations of your family members are recorded. An account of sexual activities, drug use, and other personal information is also analysed to ensure these factors do not cause any complications. 

After the completion of the screening process, you are asked to abstain from any sexual activities for 3-5 days till the day of sperm donation. This is done to ensure that the semen collected has enough sperm to be preserved. As the donation takes place, the collected sample is frozen or is called cryopreserved, for six months. 

  • After a couple approaches the fertility clinic or sperm bank for conception via Artificial Insemination (AI), the sperm is placed in the vaginal tract of the female’s body. In this process, sperms are placed artificially during the most fertile period of her menstrual cycle, ovulation. These sperms later flow towards the upper side of the tract and then undergo fertilisation. 
  • Another method is Intrauterine insemination (IUI). It is a bit more complicated as the sperm are placed in the female’s uterus by using a catheter. 

These methods have gained popularity, and more and more people are conceiving babies and donating sperm. Giggles Hospitals also ensures the utmost care and offers the best services for sperm donations.
