Sperm Donation

What is sperm donation?

Sperm donation is the provision (donation) by a man (known as sperm donor) of his sperm(known as donor sperm) to inseminate or impregnate a woman who is not his sexual partner.

In Greece, the sperm is donated through a sperm bank or a fertility clinic.
When going through a sperm bank the recipient may select donor sperm based on the donor’s looks, academic ability, race, and many other factors.

The screening process for potential sperm donors in sperm banks involves the evaluation of various factors, such as sexually transmitted infections (STIs), genetic diseases, chromosomal abnormalities, and other relevant criteria.

After collection, the sperm samples are cryopreserved and kept in storage for a minimum of six months. Following this period, the sperm donor is subjected to another round of testing for sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Depending on the recipient woman’s fertility history, the donor sperm is utilized for either intrauterine insemination (IUI) or in vitro fertilization (IVF) procedures.

Who is a suitable candidate for sperm donation?

  • Men with azoospermia due to testicular failure
  • Men who had cancer treatment and did not have their sperm frozen
  • Men with very poor quality sperm and a history of repeated IVF failures
  • Men with a genetic disease
  • Single women
  • Same sex couples

Under the Greek laws sperm donation is anonymous.
