Patients can also select a sperm donor with particular characteristics that are important to them. It is important to remember that in Australia, children conceived from donor sperm have the right to access identifying information about the donor when they turn In addition, only sperm donations from donors who have been counselled by Victorian counsellors can be used in Victoria. Clinic-recruited sperm donors, however, have no legal responsibilities or rights to a child. The woman giving birth is the legal mother of any child born.
Using Donor Sperm
Sperm Donation Program Australia | City Fertility
Making a sperm donation is one of the most generous things a man can do, as it gives others the chance to have a baby. We currently have a shortage of sperm donors in Australia, so we thank you for considering becoming a sperm donor and helping create a family. The reasons for people needing to access donor sperm are varied, and include heterosexual couples having difficulty conceiving because of male reproductive issues, single women who want to have a child, and women in same sex relationships keen to start a family. IVFAustralia has a dedicated and experienced donor team who provide guidance and support for donors and recipients throughout the process.
I used Facebook to find a sperm donor and now I'm pregnant
Over the past decade I have undertaken research on the topic of donor conception, with a specific focus on sperm donors. This research has involved interviews with Australian sperm donors — gay and heterosexual — focusing on their accounts of sperm donation. I have also undertaken a large-scale examination of sperm donors on an international website, focusing on the characteristics that most likely predict willingness amongst sperm donors to be identified to children conceived of their donations. A full list of my research publications on the topic of sperm donation can be found further down the page, and are drawn on in the applications of research findings sections below.
Donating sperm is an incredibly generous act. You will be changing lives by assisting couples and individuals in becoming parents — something they would otherwise be unable to achieve on their own. City Fertility provides an advanced sperm donor program to support you through the entire process. Our specialist team ensures a professional experience for all of our sperm donors.
