Sperm donation realized in Cyprus is a technique that allows a man to donate his sperm so as to help a couple conceive a baby. Many children are born thanks to this technique.
In order to be able to donate sperm, the donor must :
- Be between 18 and 45 years old
- Be in good health
- Have the agreement of the other member of the couple if necessary
Sperm donation : for whom ?
Sperm donation performed in Cyprus is for couples who can not conceive a baby for many reasons such as :
- The man suffers from an absence or scarcity of spermatozoa
- His spermatozoa present severe abnormalities
- There is a risk of transmitting a serious illness to the child.

Sperm donation for the donor
The procedure involves several steps for the donor :
- An initial information meeting : all questions relating to the donation are discussed, so you will have all the details about this procedure.
- The consent : the donor signs a consent form for the donation as well as the other member of the couple if necessary. This consent can be revoked at any time until the gametes are used.
- A complete medical check-up : this includes an examination of the personal and family history, determination of blood group and rhesus, serological tests (hepatitis, HIV, CMV, syphilis), a genetic consultation and a karyotype by blood sampling.
- A consultation with a psychologist for the donor and possibly the other member of the couple.
- An initial sperm collection : this collection which sometimes takes place during the first appointment allows to check the characteristics of the spermatozoa and the absence of infection.
- Freezing : the spermatozoa are packed in straws, frozen and then transferred to liquid nitrogen at a temperature of -196°C. A straw is then thawed in order to assess the sperm's tolerance to the freezing/thawing process. Depending on the results, the donor is informed of the number of collections to be carried out.
- Collections : each collection is realized by masturbation after 3 to 5 days of sexual abstinence. The semen is checked at each collection.
- A blood test : at least 6 months after the last sperm collection, serological tests are done again.
Sperm donation for the receiving couple
Sperm donation in Cyprus requires various steps for the receiving couple :
- A first information meeting : the couple makes their request for sperm donation and collects all the details and steps of this procedure.
- A consultation with a psychologist.
- A consultation with a gynaecologist to carry out an assessment and decide on the technique (insemination or IVF).
- Additional tests (serology, blood grouping, etc.).
- A request for consent to medically assisted procreation requiring the intervention of a third party donor.
- Frozen sperm are stored until they are allocated to receiving couples. They can then be used in two different techniques :
- Artificial insemination with donor sperm :
- It consists of depositing donor sperm in the uterus (intrauterine insemination) or on the cervix (intracervical insemination) 36 hours after the onset of ovulation by ovarian stimulation treatment.
In Vitro Fertilization :
IVF consists of reproducing the natural stage of fertilization by placing the oocytes previously collected from the woman (after ovarian stimulation) in contact with several sperm from the donor. One or two quality embryos are then transferred to the uterus. Any supernumerary embryos can be frozen for a subsequent frozen embryo transfer. IVF-ICSI (intracytoplasmic sperm injection) consists of injecting a single sperm directly into the membrane of the oocyte at the fertilization stage to optimize the chances of fertilization.
