Sperm Donation Articles

Donated sperm can be used in a variety of ways to help single women and couples build biological or genetic families.

Who are candidates for donated sperm?

  • Single women and lesbian couples. The sole means for women without male partners to become biological parents is via donated sperm or a donated embryo.
  • Heterosexual couples in which the male is sterile, has a low sperm count or poor sperm quality. In fact, in about 40 percent of infertile couples, the male’s sperm is the sole or contributing factor.

If you’ve decided on the donor sperm path to parenthood, your next step is choosing a donor. This can be an arduous, yet exciting step.

Deciding whether to use donor sperm can usher in emotional, practical and legal concerns. But it also opens the door to parenthood for thousands of people each year.
