Considerations

Open or non-contact sperm donor

There are two types of sperm donors: open and non-contact. It is up to the sperm donor to decide whether he wants to be an open or a non-contact donor.

There are two types of sperm donors: open and non-contact. It is up to the sperm donor to decide whether he wants to be an open or a non-contact donor.

If it is important to you that your sperm donor is either open or non-contact and it is impossible to choose e.g. an open donor in your country of treatment, you can use our search function to choose another country to receive the treatment in.

No matter which donor you choose, the sperm donor never has legal responsibility for or paternal rights to children conceived using their semen.

What is an open donor?

An open donor has granted permission for their identity to be revealed to the child once the child is of age. If you choose an open sperm donor, European Sperm Bank will help the child establish contact with the donor once the child is of age. We will notify the donor that the child would like to establish contact and offer a DNA test to assure the child of its genetic origins.

What is a non-contact donor?

A non-contact donor has not granted permission for their identity to be revealed and contact is therefore not possible. A non-contact donor is also known as an anonymous donor, but as their identity is known to us and their online profiles contain personal information, it is more accurate to refer to them as non-contact donors.

Availability

Sperm donors in your country of residence

When searching for a donor, you will realise that some donors are unavailable in certain countries. The reason for this is that legislation for pregnancy limits and reservations differs from country to country. If you wish to use a sperm donor who is only available in a certain country, you can look into the option of getting your fertility treatment done in that country.

If a donor is not available in your country of residence, this is clearly stated. Countries where treatment is available are listed on the sperm donor's profile.
