Donor Programs

Sperm Donor Program

When the male partner has too few or no sperm, the couple may choose to use donated sperm. The process involves choosing a donor that matches the characteristics the couple is looking for. Donors can be sought that match the husband’s hair and eye color or blood type, for example. We recommend California Cryobank, which has a large selection of donors available. They will prepare and ship frozen sperm to our andrology laboratory where it is stored until the couple is ready to use it. The sperm is put into the uterus of the female partner on the day of ovulation through a process called intrauterine insemination (IUI). For IUI, the female partner uses a urinary LH predictor kit to detect the ovulatory LH surge. Based on the rise in LH she detects, the IUI is scheduled for the next day. Success rates vary for donor sperm depending on the circumstances. You should expect that multiple attempts are often required before pregnancy is achieved.
