If pregnancy cannot be achieved using sperm from the partner, we can offer treatment using sperm from one of our donors.
Sperm donation for treating infertility is permitted under Czech law and subject to strict regulation. Our sperm donors are between 18 and 32 years old, most often university students. All donors must undergo a series of tests. Genetic screening and STD testing (HIV, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, syphilis) are also very important.
Treatment using donor sperm is IVS / ICSI treatment where eggs from the patient are fertilized using donor sperm. The resulting embryos belong to the couple and are prepared for embryo transfer. Any excess embryos can be frozen and stored in a cryobank for use in the next cycle, if necessary. (Frozen Embryo Transfer).
Under Czech and EU legislation, sperm donation is a completely voluntary act. Donors are not entitled to financial compensation under any circumstances. The donation process is fully anonymous for both donor and recipient, including the children born through this method.
As a medical institution, we are required to keep donors’ medical documentation on archive for a period of 30 years. FertiCare Prague is listed as an institute for reproductive medicine and genetics. We are licensed by the Czech State Institute for Drug Control (SUKL) and are subject to strict, regular inspections by public authorities (SUKL, Czech Ministry of Health).
