As part of the sperm donor screening process, we test each donor for infectious and genetic diseases. The donor is admitted into the program when all required infectious and genetic disease tests yield negative results.

After six months, we draw the donor's blood to retest the donor for infectious diseases and at that point, we release any specimens left at our facility six months prior to the blood draw. Donors must pass infectious disease testing for HIV-1, HIV-2, HTLV-I & II, hepatitis B surface antigen, hepatitis C, syphilis, CMV, Neisseria gonorrhea, and chlamydia trachomati.
