The GynCare IVF IVF sperm donation program is one of the most modern in Europe. It has enabled many couples and single mothers to have a child. There is no waiting list.

The indications are:

  • Non-obstructive azoospermia. In this situation the testicles are unable to produce spermatozoa. We recommend sperm donation after a failed open testicular biopsy (TESE).

  • Severe genetic diseases.
  • HIV-positive patients.
  • Homosexual women or single mother.

To date, GynCare IVF has successfully implemented thousands of fertility treatments using donor sperm. In addition, it provides a wide selection list, consisting of very well-tested donors.

Sperm donors are young healthy men, ages 18 to 30, who have undergone a rigorous selection process that includes medical check-ups, sperm testing and a series of blood tests to rule out infectious (eg, HIV, hepatitis B and others) and genetic diseases.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, donors have to do the pharyngeal smear (PCR) 48 hours before giving sperm.

Because of this strict screening process, only 1 in 20 candidates will eventually become a sperm donor. We store and freeze the donor’s sperm and in liquid nitrogen. Every six months, we re-examine sperm donors for infectious diseases to ensure that they continue to meet the conditions for selection. If their tests are negative, then and only then Gyn Care IVF can use the sperm samples.

Donor Anonymity

Greek law imposes the anonymity of the sperm donor. Therefore we can use sperm only from anonymous donors. The identity of the registered donor is strictly confidential. However, GynCare provides the interested parties with sufficient information for each donor. This way, they can make their choice based on their personal requirements.

Donor Profile

If you specify the main characteristics you would like the donor of your choice to have, you can access a more detailed history, which includes his physical characteristics (height, weight, eye color, hair color and type, body build), nationality, blood type and some of his interests.

In addition, you can access information about his educational level and professional career. You can also find out if the donor already has a family and his own children.

Therapeutic Options

Donor sperm insemination is a simple procedure. Fertility specialists perform it with a thin special sperm catheter in the uterus on the days when the woman is ovulating. It is a friendly and painless process for both a couple and a free woman.

Most often, however, they use donor sperm in IVF (IVF), which ensures higher fertility rates.
