Donor insemination using directed donor sperm or anonymous donor sperm purchased from a licensed sperm bank may be used in patient’s trying to conceive. Those who could benefit from donor sperm include couples who are unable to conceive due to azoospermia, or severe male-factor infertility, single women, same sex-female couples, or cis-gender/trans-couples.
Certified sperm banks must meet specific requirements for donor screening. Most sperm banks require their candidates to be screened for genetic conditions, infectious diseases and sexually transmitted diseases. Their medical history is also verified. Some banks also check their candidate’s mental health, criminal records, and ask them to take a personality test. Sperm banks can vary with regard to policies regarding release of donor photos and detailed personal information.
RMA of New York does not own or run a sperm bank, however the clinical team will provide guidance in the selection process.
“Optimal care of the infertile couple involves compassion, science, and data-driven decisions.”
