Become a donor

Have you ever thought how amazing it would be to help others create their family? Donating your eggs or sperm is one of the greatest and most fulfilling gifts possible in life. 

At Repromed we currently have hundreds of people waiting to be matched with a donor, who can help them achieve their dream of having a family.  

The enormous satisfaction gained from being a donor, not surprisingly, needs to be matched by a strong commitment, and honest intent to help others.

Become a donor

The three most important things you need to know

  1. You have no legal or financial responsibilities for any resulting donor conceived individuals.
  2. Your donation is initially matched with an intended parent anonymously, but any resulting donor conceived individual is entitled to request your identity when they turn 18 years old. 
  3. Your donation is altruistic, meaning you receive no formal payment.

What is involved

Donor process at Repromed

How the sperm or eggs are used to create a pregnancy

For sperm donation the frozen semen is thawed, washed and inseminated into the intended parent either through direct insertion into the uterus, or by creating embryos through IVF and then potentially freezing the embryos.

For egg donation, the eggs are either frozen or more usually they are inseminated on the day of egg collection with the intended parent’s sperm using IVF. The resulting embryos are either singularly transferred or frozen for use in a subsequent month.
