Sperm Donation

Sperm donation is the procedure that involves the collection of semen to donate it to the required couple. Semen is the fluid that is released during ejaculation. This process occurs for the couple who wants to conceive a baby but can't make it possible for certain reasons. 

About the Sperm Donation

This procedure is designed to assist the couple so that they can become a parent by using this effective procedure. When the donor collects the sperm, it is stored in the laboratory or any safe environment. After that, whenever it requires, it will be ejaculated into the female's reproductive organ. The whole process is also termed intrauterine insemination. If the sperm is used for the fertilisation of eggs in the lab, it is known as in vitro fertilisation. For this whole procedure, you can choose a man who is known or unknown to you. To be the donor, the man has to go through multiple medical tests and screening of health reports, and counselling. This is done to mitigate future risks and problems.
