If considerably impaired fertility in the man is accompanied by blockages of the fallopian tubes in the woman, or if repeated semen transfer cycles with donor semen were unsuccessfull, it is of course possible to perform IVF/ICSI. This is known as donor sperm IVF. The procedure for donor sperm IVF is no different from the procedure for IVF/ICSI described elsewhere.
Requirements for treatment
Close cooperation with the Berliner Samenbank GmbH (Berlin Sperm Bank) makes it possible for a couple to choose the best donor for them. If they wish, thanks to a list of different characteristics for all donors, the couple can find a donor most similar in appearance to the man in terms of their physical characteristics (eye colour, hair colour, weight, height, blood group, physique, head shape, and hair type, among many other factors). This can help ensure that the child that results from the treatment outwardly looks like both of the so-called ‘social’ parents. Once a notary certified treatment contract has been concluded, the appropriate treatment can commence. You can find further information on the website www.berliner-samenbank.de.
