What are the requirements to become a sperm donor?

Under Spanish law on sperm donation:

  • Being between 18 and 35 years of age.
  • Being in good physical and mental health.
  • Having good sperm quality, according to WHO criteria.
  • Not suffering from any genetic or sexually-transmitted disease.

Before donating sperm

After contacting us by sending an email with your contact information or calling (+34) 965 50 40 00 so that we advise you, we will schedule an appointment where, so as to ensure a quality donation and abide by the requirements of Spanish law, we will:

  •  Do a personal interview and have you fill out a questionnaire about diseases, family history and personal habits.
  •  Perform an assessment of your phenotypic characteristics.
  •  Perform a sperm quality assessment (this requires a period of 3 to 5 days of sexual abstinence).
  •  Perform a sperm freezing test (the donor’s sperm is frozen at a temperature of -196ºC/-320ºF to check if the sperm sample survives this process).
  •  Carry out a psychological assessment.
  •  Perform a blood test for the purposes of genetic and infectious disease testing (AIDS, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C and syphilis).
  •  Analyse a urine sample for the purposes of testing other sexually-transmitted diseases.

How is sperm donation done?

The donor visits our clinic once a week to do the donation. Samples are collected inside a sterilised plastic container by masturbation. A sexual abstinence of 3 to 5 days is necessary for every donation.

Pursuant to the Law

Pursuant to the provisions of Law 14/2006 of 26 May, donation at Instituto Bernabeu is an entirely anonymous, open, voluntary, informed and unpaid. Pursuant to existing legislation, you will receive financial compensation for your trouble.

Spanish legislation prevails; anonymity is always guaranteed. That is, your identity may not be revealed and you may not be told the identity of the new family members. To this end, Instituto Bernabeu applies the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and Organic Law 3/2018 on Personal Data Protection and Guarantee of Digital Rights (Spanish acronym LOPDGDD), and it provides for the regulations of the national assisted reproduction donor record (Spanish acronym SIRHA).
