Sperm donation

Sperm donation

The GynCare IVF sperm donation program is one of the most modern in Europe and 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. Sperm donation is recommended 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 are required 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. The donor’s sperm is stored and frozen in liquid nitrogen. Every six months, sperm donors are re-examined for infectious diseases to ensure that they continue to meet the conditions for selection. If their tests are negative, then and only then can sperm samples be used by GynCare IVF.

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, the interested parties are provided with sufficient information for each donor, so that 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, which is performed 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, donor sperm is used in IVF (IVF), which ensures higher fertility rates.
