Making a sperm donation is one of the most generous things a man can do, as it gives others the chance to have a baby. We currently have a shortage of sperm donors in Australia, so we thank you for considering becoming a sperm donor and helping create a family. The reasons for people needing to access donor sperm are varied, and include heterosexual couples having difficulty conceiving because of male reproductive issues, single women who want to have a child, and women in same sex relationships keen to start a family. IVFAustralia has a dedicated and experienced donor team who provide guidance and support for donors and recipients throughout the process.
Sperm donation is a procedure in which a man donates semen — the fluid containing sperm that is released during ejaculation — to help an individual or a couple conceive a baby. Donated sperm can be injected into a woman's reproductive organs intrauterine insemination or used to fertilize mature eggs in a lab in vitro fertilization. The use of donated sperm is known as third-party reproduction.
