Infertility Treatment Centre PARENS, since 2005, has been working with the world’s largest donors’ sperm database Cryos. In our offer there is also semen from the European Sperm Bank.
Our donors are ordinary, physically and mentally healthy men originating from a wide population of individuals. Most of them are students of universities. Every donor has met stringent selection conditions and successfully passed the required examination before the semen was accepted.
For the semen, the donors receive only a small remuneration and we have good reason to believe that they are people who want to help others.
Donors are fully informed about the activities of a sperm bank and signed a declaration that they do not belong to groups at risk of contact with AIDS and that they are determined to donate the semen for childless couples for the purpose of assisted reproduction procedures. The donors waive all parental rights and responsibilities. The donors definitely declare their anonymity.
The process of choosing the semen donor is not easy. This is a very important decision, which should be well thought out. That is why we enable you to look at a catalog of donors before a visit to the Infertility Treatment Centre PARENS. Sperm bank works as a simple online shop – its operation is extremely simple and intuitive.
Steps to log in to the sperm bank and the choice of the donor:
