Donating sperm can enrich many lives and fulfill their dreams of having a child. Learn all the necessary things to consider before donating sperms.

Sperm donation is a responsible work and should be taken seriously. There are so many couples that are facing infertility issues due to low sperm count, which is the most common factor for infertility in men. Donating sperm can bring smiles and happiness in their life, which they would have tried finding by all means.

Sperm Donation can be private or you can do it in a clinic as well. It is the choice of the recipient how it has to be done. To Donate Sperm, there are certain things to consider which you need to follow if you want to donate sperm and help couples fighting with infertility or barrenness.

1- Age
Age has a wide connection with sperm donation. If you want to donate sperm, you should be lying between 18 to 45 years of age bar. Donating sperm in an early age can be fruitful to the recipient but over ejaculation can harm donor’s health. You should avoid sperm donation at an early age. As per a study, on the counter part, men should be allowed to donate sperm up to the age of 45 years. Its is found that men produce healthier sperm with onset of their 40s.  Above 45 years of age, you will not be producing such healthy sperms to fertilize the egg. Once you attain a certain age, you start producing immature and infertile sperm. These sperm can hardly fertilize any egg. Age plays a crucial part in maintaining the nature and quality of the sperm. It degrades as you move towards your 50s and so on. Donating Sperm is one of the kindest jobs and you can enrich someone’s life with a healthy one.

2.Natures and Quality of Sperm
While Donating sperm, it is very important that you get your sperm checked in advance. You can get it done in any of laboratories. You should know the quality and nature of your sperm before donating sperm. Your semen will be taken out through masturbation in a separate room. You need to be abstinent to sexual intercourse or masturbation, 2-3 days before donating sperm. Doctor will keep your sperm in straw, freeze it and will check whether it can survive or not.

Sperm donation, Donating sperm

If it survives then your sperm will be treated as healthy sperm and you can donate sperm without any doubt.  A healthy and fertile sperm has an oval head and a long, straight tail. If your sperm has a long or small head with kinky, curled or double tails, then its not a fertile sperm and should not be used for sperm donation. Your sperm should move or wriggle on its own. If your sperm is unable to move freely, its better not to donate sperm because it will bring no fruit to the recipient. You should not be suffering from sexually transmitted diseases and other viral infectionsYour blood and semen both will be tested. Donating sperm may cause STDs (Sexually Transmitted Diseases) and so these tests are necessary.

3. Sperm Count
Sperm count is the most important factor for donating sperm. Recipients might choose the donor on his physique, personality traits, academics or color, but all these are wasteful if you have a low sperm count. A healthy and fertile sperm count means 39 million sperm per ejaculation. You need to know its fertility also. If more than 40% of your sperm are moving, you can definitely go for donating sperm.  

Donating sperm, Things to consider before donating sperm

A low sperm count or infertile sperm is not an option for sperm donation, for sure. You should have a healthy and fertile sperm count, and then only your sperm donation will be successful.

4. Provide the correct info
Donating Sperm is a noble cause and helps number of couples that face a permanent infertility. Its inquisitive for most of the couples to find out who has helped them. Clinic and Doctors get a consent form signed from the donor and it is provided to the recipient couples. It is very important for them to know the non-identifying information of the donor. Donors are also motivated to keep the doctor and the clinic updated about them. Some of the couples might be interested to meet him and thank him personally.

Know the Legal Rights attached with Donor Sperm
Sperm Donation is governed by Human Assisted Reproductive Technology (HART) Act, 2004. It says the child born through sperm donation has all the rights to know about the origin of its parents. However, this information is provided only when the child attains the age of 18 years. It also says that the donor can also ask for the identification of all those who are born through his sperm donation. Sperm Donation is a good cause but a donor can put restrictions and limitations on its use.  If you are donating sperm, by all means and legally, you have the parental right over the child born from your sperm.
