Sperm Donor Services Birmingham AL

If treatment has not been successful, you may decide to use donor sperm. Fortunately, sperm donation is a relatively simple procedure (physically, not necessarily emotionally) and in most places, there are ample sperm donors.

Male Infertility & Sperm Donation

Male Infertility & Sperm Donation

When male sperm analysis yields very poor results, multiple tests and treatments are considered. Unfortunately, in some cases, even with attempts to aspirate sperm directly from the testicles, treatment is not always successful.

The best home test for sperm concentration is the FertilMarq Male Fertility Sperm Test . It is performed in the privacy of your own home.

If you are going through male infertility, some of the terms you may encounter are:

oligospermia or oligozoospermia- low sperm count. Very few sperm are found in the ejaculate.

no motile sperm, no motility - none of the sperm are moving or asthenozoospermia - poor motility and/or forward progression.

teratozoospermia - low percentage of morphologically normal sperm.

necrozoospermia - no live sperm in semen.

azoospermia, asospermia, or aspermia - no sperm at all is found in the semen.

TESE - testicular sperm extraction or MESA - microsurgical epidydmal sperm aspiration. Processes used to retrieve viable sperm from men with sperm duct blockage or the absence of sperm in the semen.

ICSI - Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection , a single sperm cell is injected into each egg. This procedure is performed as part of IVF - in vitro fertilization when a small number of sperm is available. It enables fertilization of an egg even if only a single viable sperm cell is available.

If treatment has not been successful, you may decide to use donor sperm. Fortunately, sperm donation is a relatively simple procedure (physically, not necessarily emotionally) and in most places, there are ample sperm donors.

Men are allowed to donate sperm after intense questioning and testing. Their medical history is of great importance, as is their genetic history.

Lesbian couples and single women who choose to become parents also frequently opt to use sperm donation.

When the sperm donation is intented for a couple, the donor is usually matched according to physical properties of the husband (e.g., blood type, hair color, eye color, height).

This site presents stories both of recipients of sperm donation and of a women born of sperm donation.
