Why sperm donors are so important

Right now there’s a shortage of sperm donors, which means many people have to wait to benefit from donated sperm. Some couples are fortunate enough to have friends and family willing to donate sperm as a ‘known donor’. However, most are not so fortunate and are likely to be ‘in the queue’ waiting for around 1 year on average for sufficient donors to volunteer to donate their sperm.

To meet the demand, over 500 sperm donors are needed every year from all nationalities, religions, ethnicities and cultures.
