Western Fertility Institute is here to assist in the donor sperm process, making it as easy and seamless as possible. Donor sperm is commonly needed by single women, same sex female couples or couples with severe male factor infertility. Whatever the reason, Western Fertility Institute believes that donors provide an amazing and generous gift to individuals or couples who dream of having a family.

There are a few steps to the donor sperm process, below is just a general outline of what to expect.

Step 1

Initial Consultation

Meet with the physician for an initial consultation to review options, including the detailed process of matching with a donor, legal implications, insurance details, and basic medical information.

Step 2

Donor Sperm Matching

After your initial consultation, donor sperm should have been chosen with the assistance of your agency. Should you need anonymous donor sperm, Western Fertility Institute is here to guide you in the process of finding reputable anonymous donor sperm agencies who we feel are more than qualified and will help to make your journey of building a family a positive experience.

Step 3

Legal Contracts

Western Fertility Institute or your agency will help you find an attorney. Your attorney will coordinate the finalization of all legal documentation and contracts.

Step 4


After the quarantine period has passed (for known donor sperm), the sperm will be thawed and analyzed in our andrology lab.

Step 5


After the donor sperm has been analyzed, the intended mother will undergo testing and begin taking hormones and prepare for either IUI or IVF.

Step 6
