Unfortunately, you cannot apply to become a sperm donor
To be a sperm donor you must be between 18 and 45 years old. The last possible day for donation is the day before turning 46. We expect you to donate for at least 1 year and with application time in mind, we do not accept applications if there is less than 18 months before turning 46. We are sorry for any inconvenience.
