Who does the sperm donation come from?
The sperm donations usually come from a sperm bank, in which they are usually stored frozen (cryopreservation).
The sperm donors are very carefully selected by the sperm banks beforehand. For example, they must be
• between 18 and 38 years old,
• completely healthy both physically and mentally – so they must not have any infectious diseases or hereditary illnesses in the family – and
• have an optimal sperm quality as well as a high sperm count.
The sperm donors receive compensation for their donations.
