IVF for Single Women

Single women could undergo either an IVF (In Vitro Fertilization) or an IUI (Intrauterine Insemination) with a donor sperm.

Fertility Design Clinic is cooperating with recognized and licensed donor banks. Sperm donors are carefully screened for infectious disease, including HIV, Syphilis and Hepatitis B/C. Donors have their chromosomes analyzed for Blood Karyotype and a full medical consultation as well as counselling.

Prospective parents can choose the appropriate physical characteristics from the panel of donors so that skin color, height, eye and hair color can be matched. Ideally sperm donors should have fathered their own children and they must have good quality sperm. However there can be no guarantee of fertility and on rare occasions the thawed sperm sample is sub‐optimal in quality. Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) can be used to assist fertilization if the donated sperm is being used in an IVF cycle.

Men donors who are fulfilling the appropriate criteria (good mobility of sperm, good number, good morphology, according to World Health Organization criteria), can donate their sperm. The candidates are provoking into a series of examination to be improved that everything is normal and healthy. Respecting to the legislation, there is an aging scale (a maximum age is at 40 years old) that is usually set, in order to avoid indications of inferior quality sperm.
