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.
Our association with the Monash IVF Group, allows us to access International Donor sperm.
Monash IVF is proud of the exclusive Australian partnership with California Cryobank and our direct program whereby donors are specifically selected for our donor program and comply with all Australian legislative requirements. Founded in 1977, California Cryobank is an international sperm banking leader, and the largest company of its kind in the world.
Once you have joined the donor program you are able to view the profiles of compliant donors who are available at the time access has been provided.
As there is strict legislation around the number of recipients any one donor can be allocated, we can not guarantee the donor you have selected will be available if the allocation for that donor has been completed between the time the donor profile has been released for viewing and when a decision has been made.
We encourage you to select your top three donors to ensure your best chance of securing a donor.
Currently Fertility Tasmania does not have any clinic recruited sperm donors available.
