Sperm donation is the most common type of gamete donation. The Ministry of Healthcare (MOH) of Ukraine has published the guidelines for that.
There are many indications for the procedure, including male factor infertility, once a male partner is a carrier of the genetic condition or includes a transmissible disease that cannot be eradicated, and for a woman who does not have a male partner. Prior the outbreak of HIV, it was common that fresh donor sperm samples were used, but now solely frozen sperm samples are obtained from the licensed sperm banks. The frozen sperm samples are quarantined for 6 months and only released following sperm donor has tested negative for syphilis, hepatitis and HIV. More generally, sperm donation is performed anonymously. It is standard that any couple or woman pursuing sperm donation meet with a psychologist and a lawyer. This counseling should result in the development of an agreement that protects everyone involved.
