About sperm quality

Donor sperm must be of high quality in order to give the greatest chance of conception and pregnancy.

The quality of sperm quality differs from individual to individual and can vary in the same person for shorter or longer periods of time. That is quite normal. Many factors determine the quality of the sperm, such as illness and fever, warmth, smoking, drug abuse, diet, obesity and certain medications. Although It is possible for older men to have children, sperm quality reduces with age. As a donor you need to be between 23 and 45 years.

We examine your sperm sample for:

  • Sperm volume – the amount measured in ml
  • Concentration – the number of sperms measured in millions per ml
  • Mobility – the proportion of sperm moving around

The more normal, mobile sperm in the sample, the greater the chance of pregnancy.
