Lately there has been different stories in the Media concerning the purchasing of donor sperm. At European Sperm Bank we would like to summaries, what we believe are very important aspect about the topic Donor Sperm. When choosing donor sperm, it is pivotal that instead of just comparing prices between sperm banks, that we instead focus on why and how sperm banks are different. What they actually offer – besides the sperm.
Accepting the right donors
At European Sperm Bank we make a difference by selecting and having the best donors. Our screening process is probably one of the best and most thorough worldwide. We are extremely critical and will always say NO rather than accept an unknown risk when approving donor candidates. We constantly evaluate and choose the best testing methods and practices to give everyone peace of mind that genetically bound diseases are not transmitted. This is also the reason why we have an in-house employee, a specialized geneticist, who has been in the genetics field for 30 years. Our geneticist is always involved in the evaluation and acceptance of any donor. Since it is our overall goal to help creating wonderful and healthy children we find it crucial to be able to offer exactly this kind of genetic security and counselling as part of the process. Having a donor child is one of the safest ways to have a child. Even so, we must always embrace the fact that we are dealing with nature – and therefore our own imperfect genes.
How we test and screen
Our screening approach is fundamental to how we define ourselves as a sperm bank. It has been the key element in our operations since we were founded in 2004 and it continues to be so as we review and update processes on an ongoing basis. Needless to say, our screening program complies with the regulations set out by the Danish Health Authority and meets and exceeds the EU screening requirements. Compliance is a number one priority with us and you should always look for a sperm bank who is compliant with local authorities.
Core to our approach is that we only accept donors with superb sperm quality (only MOT20+) Luckily, we receive many applications every day from men keen to be donors, but after our thorough testing only 5-7% of the applicants are accepted as donors. We reject a lot of potential donors due to the sperm quality alone, but obviously the donors own and family medical history influences whether one might be accepted or not. We never take any chances.
We care and think about the future
We offer the best and most professional guidance to those in need of donor sperm. We ensure that women and couples experience a positive and valuable difference when contacting us. And we fully understand that using a sperm donor is rarely a first choice. This is also why we take our time to listen and provide the right counselling. Daily we are in contact with women, men and couples from around the entire world who needs help, sparring, good advice or simply a chat about the choice and process they are facing.
