Donor sperm treatment
The reason for using donated sperm (DS) is male partner’s azoospermia, a risk of transmission of a genetic disorder to a child and other reasons.
Sperm can be frozen quite easily and very well survives freezing. Donor sperm is used only after prior freezing.
Sperm donation in the Czech Republic is allowed by law, but is strictly anonymous. We can reveal only non-identifying information about the donor. Since as a clinic we have quite an extensive cryobank of donor sperm, you can choose from such non-identifying characteristics of the donor, which are e.g. a blood type, eye and hair colour, height, etc. Those are the characteristics that we can reveal.
If a child is born from donor sperm, the couple can reserve the sperm doses from the same donor (if available).
According to law, donor sperm must not be used in women without a partner; it is always necessary to have consent to treatment as well as consent to use donor sperm, both signed by a partner.
Sperm donors must meet strict criteria, namely: perfect health and the age under 40; they also have to undergo genetic testing and screening for sexually transmitted diseases, including chlamydia. Normospermia is a basic condicion. The donor receives financial compensation for costs associated with donation.
The simplest treatment using donor sperm is IUI (intrauterine insemination) under the condition that at least one fallopian tube is patent. If pregnancy after IUI does not occur, IVF + ET with donor sperm can be performed.
