I want to donate sperm at AVA Clinic. What do I have to do?
If you are interested in being a sperm donor at AVA Clinic or if you still have questions about the donation process, we will be happy to talk to you. Call and make an appointment, without any obligation, on 213 245 000 or email us at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will get back to you soon.
Your treatment step by step:
1. Psychological counselling session and sperm count
On your first visit to AVA Clinic, you will meet with our psychologist, who will explain the whole sperm donation process to you in detail. At this appointment, you will also discuss the legal, emotional and social implications of this type of treatment. This will help you understand all aspects before you give your informed consent.
We do not conduct psychometric tests and donors are not selected on the basis of personality traits.
We will then ask you to provide a sperm sample so that we can assess its quality. The sample is provided by masturbation in the total privacy of a special room for the purpose. You will be asked to refrain from sexual activity for two to five days before.
After the first assessment, we will know if you can continue your donation process. Not all candidate donors have the required sperm parameters for us to be able to use their samples in medically assisted procreation treatment.
2. Doctor’s appointment and tests
The donation process will continue with one of our fertility specialists. Your medical history will be analysed to ensure that you are healthy. You will be required to have blood tests to confirm that you do not have hepatitis B, hepatitis C, HIV, HTLV or syphilis.
During the appointment, we will also screen for known genetic and hereditary diseases in you and your immediate family. Tests will also be requested to look for any transmissible chromosome disorders.
If your tests and exams are in order, you will be placed on our donor list and can begin your sperm collections so that they can be cryopreserved.
3. Sperm collections
You will be asked to schedule regular visits to our unit at your own convenience to provide sperm samples. These will be examined by our lab and only samples that meet the quality standards will be cryopreserved.
We will ask you to schedule six to ten sperm samples. Prior to each of these samples, you will be asked to refrain from sexual activity for two to five days.
4. Post-donation tests
Six months after your last sperm collection, you will be asked to visit us at AVA Clinic one last time so that we can repeat some blood tests. After your tests have been assessed, we will finally be able to use your cryopreserved sperm samples now that their quarantine period is over (as required by law). Only after that will we be able to use them to the benefit of the people who need your help to have a child.
At this time, we will also thank you for your generous gesture and you will be given a compensation (pursuant to Ministry of Health Ordinance 5015/2011) for costs, travel expenses and time spent during the process.
Your sperm donation process ends here. AVA Clinic and certainly all the people that you help will be eternally grateful for your donation. Thank you!
