HOW is it done?

HOW is it done?

There are steps to be followed:

l Find a sperm bank.

l Go for an initial consultation.

Esterhuizen said at the first meeting, the donor will find out the base criteria for sperm donation.

l The donor must be aged between 18 and 34.

The sperms of young men are better at defrosting than those of old men.

l He must be at least 1,8m tall.

l His weight must be about right for your height. This is because proper weight correlates with healthy sperm.

l He cannot have (or ever has had) hepatitis B, hepatitis C, HIV, genital herpes, venereal warts, Ebola.

l He can only make three donations.

l Pass a medical history test.

l Take a full-fledged medical examination.

l Sign the contract.

What is the cost of fertility treatment? Esterhuizen says treatment starts from R4000 but every patient's case is unique and the testing and treatment plan recommendations are based on individual circumstances.
