Sperm donation involves using sperm from a male donor. The sperm is used to fertilise eggs during assisted reproductive treatment. When there is a child born from the donation, the child will be genetically related to the female recipient and the sperm donor but not to the recipient’s partner. It is possible to have treatment using both donated eggs and donated sperm, in which case a child born will be genetically related to both donors and not to the recipient parent/s. Patients are also able to recruit their own donors.
Currently Fertility Tasmania does not have any clinic recruited sperm donors available and does not provide sperm donation as a service. Our association with the Monash IVF Group, opens up great opportunities for patients who require sperm donation in order to have a family. Please discuss this option with our dedicate team as we can happily refer you to continue your journey to having a family.
