WHAT OUR DONORS SAY

Why do men donate their sperm? A few of our donors tell us about their experiences.

Martin

I always knew that I wanted to become a dad someday. Suddenly, I started to wonder “what if I can’t make a baby?” I did a lot of thinking about what I would do if my sperm count were too low. Would I consider adopting? Absolutely. I’d have no problem with my child not having my genes, but if I had the option, I would prefer my child to look a bit like me.

I am convinced that it is your environment and upbringing that defines who a child becomes. Therefore, it is important to me that parents, who want a baby out of love, also have that opportunity. As a sperm donor, I am able to fulfil these peoples greatest wish. For me, what is most important in raising a child is love!

After talking with a friend, who is a sperm donor, I decided to apply. I liked the thought of helping others. I did the initial tests and was accepted as a donor.

It is a privilege for me to be able to create life and make others happy.

I have been a sperm donor now for almost three years, and the thought of helping others is actually why I keep doing it. I am aware that someday, a donor child may contact me, and I look forward to talking to them and to giving them the answers, they are looking for.

Christian

When I was accepted into the sperm donor programme, there were a lot of things to consider. I had the opportunity to help others, to make my mark on society and get a fair compensation at the same time. Another important aspect for me was the support of my family. I wanted them to know that I am a donor, and they are fine with it.

I have experienced first hand what it does to a person to not be able to have the children, one wants. If I could assist in such a difficult situation, I would be happy to. Personally, I like the thought of passing on my genes and knowing that even if I never have children of my own, a part of me lives on. The money is a very nice bonus. I don’t consider it payment; it’s merely compensation.

Simon

My wife and I had many difficulties having children. My wife had a fertility check and I had a sperm count analysis, and we had a talk about what options we had within the area of fertility treatment. If my sperm count were low, we would very possibly use a sperm donor.

It turned out that I didn’t have low sperm count, and because of our talk I decided that I wanted to do my part to help others in that situation. It was not a hard decision to make, and I applied right away.
To me, if you want help, you must also help others. I am very happy and proud to be able to help people fulfil their dream.
