The industrial age in which we are all living has not only negatively affected women and children, but it has affected men as well. The negativity has reached to a point that WHO (World Health Organisation) has even decreased the ideal sperm values for reproduction in the recent years. For instance, the minimum amount of semen required was 2cc 3 to 4 years ago whereas it is 1.5cc now. Moreover, for spontaneous generation 20 million sperm cells per ml were required. Now this amount has been reduced to 15 million sperm cells per ml.
Under these circumstances, if sperm cells cannot be retrieved by medical treatment or via surgical interventions (such as TESA, TESE, Micro-TESE) and if the couple has no other choice, they may have to use a sperm bank.
At our center, we use licensed sperm banks. Our policy on this matter is so clear that we encourage couples to choose from licensed sperm banks registered with local authorities and in full compliance with all relevant regulatory requirements. When couples cannot make a choice, our doctors can help them choose keeping in mind factors such as race, religion, physical appearance or educational background.
