1. Fill out the application form

Before you visit one of our departments you must fill out an application form and book a time for a preliminary sperm sample. You can find the application form here.

2. Preliminary sperm samples

Once you have submitted your application and booked a time, you must visit one of our departments to provide a preliminary sperm sample. We will analyse the sample to see, if your sperm quality is good enough to become a sperm donor, and we will contact you with the results of the analysis. We may ask you to visit us to provide 1-2 additional sperm samples for us to analyse.
To ensure good sperm quality, you should not have ejaculated in the last 2–3 days prior to making a sperm sample at Cryos.

3. Clinical examination

If your sperm quality is good enough to become a donor, you will be requested to complete an online questionnaire about your health. A health professional will review your responses. Then, we will then agree on a time for you to undergo a clinical examination at Cryos where, among other things, urine and blood samples will be taken.
Please remember to bring valid picture ID.

4. Approval

The health professional will carry out a preliminary approval and you can begin to donate. Once the results of the urine and blood tests have been received, you will receive a final approval. You will receive up to DKK 500 for every approved donation as compensation.
