Sperm donation commonly helps couples who are unable to conceive a baby due to “male-factor” fertility problems; however, it is increasingly being used to enable single women and female couples to have their own children.
Sperm donors may help multiple recipients. Under legislation, a sperm donor is able to donate to 10 women in Victoria and South Australia and 5 in New South Wales (this includes the donor and any current or former partner of the donor). In Queensland there is no legislated limit for donations, but City Fertility Centre has set a maximum of 10 as its policy position. This means that up to 10 or 5 women can have children, who are genetic siblings, as a result of your sperm donation. Please note there may be more than one child per family.
Our fertility coordinators are available to discuss any questions you may have, so please feel free to contact us. We are here to help you.
