Become a sperm donor
Make a difference in someone's life
By becoming a sperm donor you will be part of an exceptional group of people who have decided to assist others in achieving their dreams of having a family.
Through our dedicated sperm donor program – Sperm Donors Australia (SDA), we welcome everyone who meets the eligibility criteria to become a sperm donor.
Sperm Donors Australia (SDA) was established in 2011 to help individuals who are unable to conceive naturally, with the opportunity to experience pregnancy and to bear a child. The donated sperm can also be used in surrogacy to help individuals and/or couples achieve their dreams of parenthood.
SDA will ensure you are well informed throughout your entire journey of becoming a sperm donor.
If you would like to be part of this rewarding process, it is important to understand what’s involved.
The preliminaries of becoming a sperm donor
Please note that sperm donors (and their partners) will be given a request form for your tests. These tests are required as part of the routine screening process necessary to donate sperm. You (and your partner) will need to get the tests completed so the results are available at your medical check-up. You are also required to provide urine samples throughout the donation process. Any results from your medical check-up and blood tests will be given to you by your fertility specialist or fertility coordinator.
The required tests are:
- Donor: HIV, hepatitis B and C, syphilis, Human T-lymphotropic Virus (HTLV) 1+2, cytomegalovirus (CMV), cystic fibrosis, karyotype, blood group, Fragile X syndrome (FXS), Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA), thrombophilia and full blood count (FBC).
- Urine testing: chlamydia and gonorrhoea.
- Semen tests: M/C/S.
- Donor partner: HIV, hepatitis B and C, syphilis, HTLV 1+2 and CMV.
