Sperm donation

Sperm donationWhat is (sperm)?MaleIs paid or free of chargesemenIs to provide.The purpose of the recipient isArtificial inseminationMost of them are raised bySperm bankIt is done through a facility called.

Actual offer

Sperm donors usually enter into contracts to sell sperm and often continue to donate sperm for the contracted minimum period (6-12 months).Certain conditions (age and medical history) must be met to provide.In the United StatesFDAWas founded byHuman Cell and Tissue or Cell and Tissue Bank Product (HCT / Ps)There are regulations by the government and regulations unique to each state.In the case of Zytex International, one of the oldest sperm banks in the United States, it costs about $ 1 to $ 1 each time.[1]..In Japan, there are no restrictions by the national or local governments, and dozens of individual sperm donation sites have been launched.The usage fee varies, such as free of charge, actual cost only, and about 1 yen each time.

Close marriageFrom the perspective of preventing sperm banks, sperm banks usually have strict limits on the number of births per donor.In 1, the Health Science Council's Expert Committee on Assisted Reproductive Technology announced that the number of births per donor should be limited to 2000.[2]..However, some sperm donation volunteers in each country, including Japan, are working far beyond these standards, and self-restraint from an ethical point of view is required.[3]..However, as will be described later, the standards differ greatly from country to country, and their validity is controversial.


Many US donors are 18-25 years old due to financial motives, but there is growing concern and interest in the resulting sperm offspring.The children thus created are also interested in their lack of a father and a keen interest in learning about their biological father.[Source required].

All donors limit the number of children produced by their sperm, but nevertheless find that they are secretly placed in another sperm bank over the internet. A man who posted to a website called DonorSiblingRegistry.com claims that sperm donation has made him the father of at least 650 children.These worries are double.Although rare, recessive genetic disorders can lead to unrealistic kinship with common traits in the future.In Japan as well, we will work outside the standards set by the "Special Committee on Assisted Reproductive Technology" report (2000) of the Health Science Council (the number of births per donor is limited to 1). Is considered a problem from an ethical point of view[Source required]..On the other hand, the number of births per donor varies greatly from country to country, with a population of 1 million in Denmark up to 570 and in the United States up to 12 per 85.[4], The validity of Japanese standards is controversial.

Regulation and donor tracking

The law on sperm donation depends largely on the jurisdiction.The donor and recipient are usually anonymous to each other.And the recipient may not receive any specific details about the donor, such as height, weight, hair color, or educational background.Nowadays, some countries give people who want to know about donors the right to know various levels of information, such as their personal information.As a result of the efforts of the donor's children, some countries have made it mandatory for all future donors to disclose this information (eg New Zealand, UK).However, it is usually anonymous in North America.

Tracking by registration

Tracking with DNA database

Donor-child relationship

Children produced by many sperm donations do not recognize the term "donor" as a proper expression.Appropriately, they seem to want things like "biological father," "genetic father," "father who gave up rights," and "male ancestor."[Source required].

Morality and ethics about sperm donation are expected to spark even more heated debate.However, many justify sperm donation as morally acceptable for having children.[Source required].

Living with an adult relative had the role of buffering the difference in class between single-parent households."[7]The poverty of single-parent families varies depending on the sex, educational background, and cohabitation of the parents.
