Donor Sperm

For some people looking to start a family, donor sperm is their best or only option. At Monash IVF, our donor teams are committed to helping our patients access donor sperm and making the process as simple as possible.

Depending on their individual circumstances, our patients have access to three different types of sperm donors.

These include:

  • clinic-recruited sperm donors
  • overseas sperm donors
  • known sperm donors

We explore these categories in more detail below.

How to get started

If you’re looking to get started with donor sperm, a thorough chat with your fertility specialist is a great place to start. They will clarify all of your options and discuss the entire process with you in detail, so you can proceed with confidence.

Our patients can use donor sperm as part of an insemination or IVF treatment cycle.

Rest assured - your fertility specialist will help you select the very best treatment option for you.

As a recipient of donor sperm, you will be required to undergo counselling to understand the implications of using a donor to conceive a child. You may also be required to undergo genetic screening so that we can confirm compatibility with your chosen donor.

At Monash IVF, we understand that many of our patients are keen to start trying for a baby without any unnecessary delays. That’s why we provide you with access to sperm donors as soon as you’re ready to proceed with treatment.
