Selection of sperm donation type

If you want to use sperm donation, you need to decide before your fertility treatment is commenced whether you want anonymous or non-anonymous sperm donation. The four donation types are described below.

The four sperm donation types

Anonymous sperm donation

In anonymous sperm donation, you will only receive information about a basic profile containing the following details about the sperm donor: height, weight, eye colour, hair colour, skin colour and race/ethnicity. Information about the sperm donor’s blood type can also be obtained if this is regarded as necessary for medical reasons.

The anonymity is reciprocal, which means that a sperm donor cannot receive information about you and any child subsequently born after you have been treated with his sperm.

The sperm banks have chosen that additional information to the basic profile can be obtained for all sperm donors.

Sperm donation with extended prof (Non-anonymous)

Sperm donation with extended profile is non-anonymous sperm donation where it is possible to obtain more information about the sperm donor at the time of donation than what is contained in the basic profile.

For example, the sperm bank’s donor catalogue may contain information about the sperm donor’s occupation, leisure interests, education and training, voice sample, baby photos or the like. However, the sperm donor’s identity cannot be disclosed at any time, nor is it possible for any child to receive information about the sperm donor’s identity. Likewise, a sperm donor can never obtain information about any children born after the recipient has been treated with his sperm.

Open sperm donation

In open sperm donation, the sperm donor’s identity is not known to you at the time of the donation, but the sperm donor has agreed with the sperm bank that it will subsequently be possible for any child to receive information about the sperm donor’s identity or, as a minimum, certain additional details. It is most often agreed that the child can obtain information about the sperm donor’s identity when the child turns 18. A sperm donor can never become a putative father or obtain information about any children born after the recipient has been treated with his sperm.

Known donation

In known sperm donation, the sperm donor’s identity is known to you at the time of the donation. You choose the sperm donor yourself. Before a man can be approved as a known sperm donor, he must be screened and risk assessed by a sperm bank, and his sperm quality must be suitable for fertility treatment. By his signature, the sperm donor can accept the treatment and thus also acknowledge paternity of any child and that the child will become the sperm donor’s legal heir. An exemption from the rules on paternity is the situation in which a known sperm donor donates sperm to a woman who is married or cohabiting with a partner who has consented to the treatment and thus accepted paternity or co-motherhood. If a known sperm donor donates sperm to a single woman, he always becomes the legal father of the child.
