Treatment with Donor Sperm

Summary: Treatment with donor sperm is offered when the man does not have sperm or you are two women who want children. Donor sperm is used in conjunction with regular in vitro fertilization (IVF) or by insemination (IUI).

Treatment takes place in the same way as regular insemination (IUI) or in vitro fertilization (IVF), but the semen used for fertilization is from a donor. Once we have entered into an agreement for treatment, you will fill out a form where you select and list which donor you want. You will choose from donors who are approved for use in Norway on Cryos’ website. Those who are approved in Norway are the donors who are marked with the NO-standard and are non-anonymous.

Non-anonymous donor means the identity of the donor is kept in a national register. Medicus has no identity of the donor, only a code. If the couple chooses to tell their child that he/she is a donor child, only the child at the age of 18 has the opportunity to know the name of the donor. The donor has no parental rights to the child, even if the child chooses to know the donor’s identity. A donor has no legal rights to find out how many pregnancies he possibly originated. The number of children in Norway who can have the same donor is also regulated.
