Is sperm donation anonymous?YES. The law explicitly prohibits clinics from revealing the identities of the people who are involved in a donation process. In this way, donors are not allowed to meet the recipients, nor the new-borns, and these cannot meet the donor.
Does the donor receive an economic compensation?Yes. Although donation is altruistic, Spanish Law on assisted reproduction establishes that the donor will receive economic compensation for the inconveniences derived from the donation process. Once admitted as a donor, a weekly sperm donation will be obtained for a period of 4-6 months. For each donation, the donor will receive a total of 50€ as compensation, which will be divided in two payments; 25€ on the same day of the sample collection and the remaining 25€ on the day of the blood test that will be performed 6 months after the last sample. On this day the donor will receive the 25€ corresponding to all the samples that will have been collected during the 4-6 months of the process.
How many times can donors donate sperm?Our sperm donation programme recommends a weekly donation for a period of 4-6 months. The semen sample is obtained by masturbation and it is necessary to abstain from having sexual intercourse during the 3-5 days before the donation.
