Sperm Donation Q & A

What is sperm donation?

Sperm donation is a type of fertility treatment. It uses healthy sperm from an anonymous donor to help you conceive.

At CARE Fertility, the team partners with commercial sperm banks that store and ship high-quality sperm. The team uses the sperm in various fertility treatments, including intrauterine insemination (IUI) and in vitro fertilization (IVF).

Who is a candidate for sperm donation?

You might be a candidate for sperm donation if you’ve been diagnosed with an underlying medical condition that affects the health, production, or function of your sperm. 

At CARE Fertility, the team also offers sperm donations to single women and lesbian couples who want to start a family of their own.

When is sperm donation used?

At CARE Fertility, the team uses donor sperm for several types of fertility treatment, including:

Intrauterine insemination (IUI)

Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is an outpatient procedure that increases your chances of conception. During treatment, your CARE Fertility provider injects donor sperm into a catheter –– a thin, soft tube. The catheter deposits the donor sperm in your womb, boosting the likelihood of fertilization.

In vitro fertilization (IVF)

In vitro fertilization is similar to IUI. The difference is that your provider fertilizes one of your eggs outside of the womb. Then, they insert the fertilized egg into your uterus. What’s more, with IVF, you can freeze multiple embryos and save them for future pregnancies. 

Does sperm donation increase my chances of getting pregnant?

Yes. If your partner has sperm abnormalities or underlying health problems that affect their sperm production, it can be difficult to conceive. Research shows that donor sperm increases the success rate of pregnancy, especially in couples with male factor infertility.

The team at CARE Fertility can even analyze a sample of your partner’s sperm and determine its viability.

How does fertility treatment with sperm donation work?

At CARE Fertility, sperm donation takes several weeks. Before administering intrauterine insemination or in vitro fertilization, the team conducts a wide range of tests, including bloodwork and urinalysis. 

They also have you fill out multiple questionnaires about your family, medical, and sexual history.

After gathering the necessary information, the team works with a commercial sperm bank to find a donor who aligns with your needs.
