Donor Sperm Treatment with Footsteps To Fertility Centre

For couples or individuals who may require the use of donor sperm in order to achieve a pregnancy, using donor sperm can be an option. In most cases, the donor is anonymous, but the couple may also ask a friend or relative to donate sperm.

Couples choose to use donor sperm for a variety of reasons. In certain situations, a male partner may have a low number of sperm, or sperm are absent altogether.

Many individuals who may not have otherwise been able to conceive due to male infertility or lack of a male partner are able to achieve their dream of becoming a parent via donor sperm insemination.

At Footsteps To Fertility Centre located  in Nairobi, Kenya, we routinely provide individuals and couples with open access to all fertility treatments.

Feel free to contact us, chat with us  or directly reserve an appointment below. We are more than happy to help couples or individuals accomplish their dreams of starting a family.

Who can be a sperm donor?

The main qualities to look for in selecting a sperm donor are assurance of good health and absence of any genetic diseases. The sperm donor should be younger than age 40 to avoid potential problems with aging. Although establishment of fertility is ideal, it is generally not required.

Known sperm donors are assessed for suitability on an individual basis. Using sperm from anonymous donors is much more common than non-anonymous donors and both are acceptable as long as both parties agree.

Who can use donated sperm?

Treatment with donor sperm may be required to help you achieve your dream of having a baby if you are a:

  • Single woman, or
  • Men with Low Sperm Counts
  • Men with Poor Sperm Motility
  • Heterosexual couple with severe male factor infertility or a history of serious genetic or medical disorder.

If you wish to use a sperm donor to help you conceive, and whether you have your own sperm donor or require a clinic-recruited donor, feel free to contact us.

Treatment with donor sperm (IUI or IVF) requires a referral from your specialist and a series of appointments that include:

  • Fertility specialist appointment to discuss the necessary screening tests and sign the required treatment consent forms with you.

  • Counseling appointments to discuss the social and legal issues around donor-conceived families.

  • Nursing information session to discuss the process in detail before commencing it.

Treatment options using donor sperm

Treatment with donor sperm may be by natural or  intrauterine insemination (IUI) or IVF with Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI). The recommended treatment will depend on your circumstances, the quality and amount of sperm available for use, and any previous treatments.

In some cases, patients may prefer to do a natural cycle insemination, which is the injection of the sperm into the uterine cavity around the time of ovulation without any stimulation of egg growth with medications.

The IUI procedure involves insertion of sperm through the cervix at the time of the woman’s ovulation. When using donor sperm the frozen sperm sample will be thawed just prior to the IUI procedure.

IVF using donor sperm is recommended if IUI treatment has not resulted in pregnancy, where the sperm quality is inadequate for IUI, where there is only a small amount of suitable sperm stored, or otherwise where medically indicated.
