People choose to use donor sperm for a variety of reasons. In some couples, the male partner is sterile and can't provide a sperm sample for intrauterine insemination IUI or in vitro fertilization IVF. Single women and lesbian couples may take advantage of donor sperm to help them achieve the family they desire. In other instances, couples may seek a sperm donor to avoid passing on a genetic disease or disorder that is carried by the male partner. Patients who wish to use a sperm donor can either buy sperm from an anonymous donor in a sperm bank, or ask a friend or relative to donate. At UCSF, all couples or individuals using a sperm donor will meet with our psychologist to discuss any questions or concerns they have about the process.

I want to use artificial insemination with his sperm with his knowledge and consent. Once my embryos are created by in vitro fertilizations with my eggs and my partner's sperm, they will be transferred into the uterus of the gestational carrier. Hopefully a pregnancy and healthy birth will follow. A designated, known, or directed semen donor DD is a donor of semen used to inseminate a non-sexually intimate partner. If the DD is the intended parent they will use a gestational carrier, where embryos are created by in vitro fertilization using the sperm and eggs of intimate partners but are implanted into a gestational carrier who has no biological link to the embryos.
Donor insemination DI is the process of inseminating a woman with sperm obtained from a known or anonymous donor. The procedure is usually performed in natural cycles without the use of any fertility medications. However, fertility medication may be recommended for women in their late 30's and older, and for those who have been unsuccessful with donor insemination in natural cycles, in order to increase the number of eggs for fertilization. If insemination with donor sperm is unsuccessful, or if there are other fertility factors that indicate the need, in vitro fertilization IVF with donor sperm may be performed. Sperm donors may be known or anonymous.
