Sperm Donor Recipients

When you’re not one of the lucky ones who can take fertility for granted, having your child could be difficult, or even impossible, without the help of a sperm donor.

Sperm Donor Recipients: Who needs it?

  • Men with no live sperm in their ejaculate.
  • Women in a same-sex relationship
  • Single women who want to become a mother.
  • Men who have undergone a vasectomy and now want to father a child.
  • Men who are carriers of a genetic disease.
  • When previous medical treatment, such as radiation and chemotherapy for cancer, has negatively impacted sperm production.
  • Where an illness such as mumps has left a man infertile.

Sperm Bank

Conception Sperm Donation(CSD) recruits young healthy males between the ages of 19-35 years; who have normal sperm and fulfill all our specific screening criteria. The selection and testing of donors is an involved process requiring the donors to attend our bank for consultations with our fertility specialists, for psychological assessment, medical screening, blood tests, and laboratory testing (semen analysis).

South Africa has a unique ancestral gene pool, we probe our donor’s ancestral heritage closely:

  • Black African of Southern African descent (an important note for this group is there is a low incidence of sickle cell disease (SCD).
  • East Indian.
  • Our European population can trace their ancestry to Dutch, French, Portuguese, German, Greek, Norwegian origin.
  • Our mixed origin donors have a racial mix of European, black African, and Asian origin.

Gamete donation is anonymous in South Africa, and donors donate for altruistic reasons. Our extensive profiles provide information on the donor’s medical history, his family medical history, physical descriptions, education, personal interests and personality, and childhood photos.
