An older practice than imagined, the donation of semen to help infertile couples or, women who wish to have children without the need for a relationship, is increasingly popular in the world of fertility.

Mothers will also not have any access to the donor’s registration, as determined by the Federal Council of Medicine and ANVISA. The material is harvested and can be frozen for future use. Remembering that in Brazil, it is not possible to sell this material, in fact, it is prohibited by law !

Homemade Sperm Donation – Risky Way to Try to Get Pregnant
A very worrying, and even alarming fact regarding public health, are donations or even informal sales of sperm. With the arrival of social networks, applications such as Whatsapp, for example, the number of sperm donation has grown absurdly. Couples who want to be parents, or homo affective unions of women, look for a way to lower costs and communicate with each other for sales and unofficial donations like those made in specialized clinics. There are two ways to make a clandestine sale or donation: with physical contact and without physical contact . However, both are dangerous for both sides, both for those who want to get pregnant, and for those who make the donation with physical contact.
Donations of sperm made the homemade way are usually not closely monitored by doctors who analyze the donor’s health before any procedure. Sometimes, not even a blood test is done to check for diseases such as HIV, Hepatitis, Syphilis and so many others that are susceptible to transmission with the contact of body fluids. Donation with physical contact puts both sides at risk, both who is providing the semen and who is receiving it. The recipient of the form without physical contact is the one who takes all the risks. The fact is that the insecurity of this method is more and more, putting health at risk for those who submit to the purchase or receive the donation from a stranger and without any access to their health history. The sale of sperm is forbidden, and even if done clandestinely, it is considered illegal and a crime. Fact that does not happen in countries like the United States, Germany and others, where the sale of sperm is allowed, all in clinics where the man himself receives a value for his sperm. Here is the tip of the film made on the subject De Repente Pai , which tells the adventure of a man who discovered he was the father of more than 500 people with his semen sales to a bank, worth a session with popcorn and everything.
