Clinic Sperm Donation Process

In order to ensure your suitability for sperm donation, the following requirements must be met:

Important Considerations


Your consent to donate can be withdrawn at any time during this process. Your right to withdraw consent only ceases once the donated gametes have been used in the fertility treatment of another couple.

The quarantine period can be utilised as an excellent opportunity to carefully consider your options as discussed with the counsellor and withdraw from the donation process should you wish to do so during this time.


In accordance with the Artificial Conception Act 1985, any child born as a result of your donation is the legal child of the birthing mother alone where single, or in conjunction with her husband or de-facto partner.


Although your personal details are unknown to the recipient at the time of donation, Federal law dictates that the child conceived from your donation may access your identifying information once they have reached 16 years of age.


Donation in Australia is altruistic in nature, therefore payment for your donation is not permissible by law. However, you will be compensated travel costs, should you wish to claim this.

Thank you for considering becoming a donor. We appreciate the significance and understand the complexities involved in making this decision and will support you every step of the way.
