Requirements to become a sperm donor

To become a sperm donor, you must above all have good sperm quality. But there are other requirements, which you must meet if you are to become a sperm donor.

You cannot become a sperm donor if...

  • you have haemophilia or a coagulation disease
  • you have provided sex to others for money or drugs
  • you have venereal warts or condylomata
  • you inject medicines for non-medical reasons
  • you or your family have a serious inherited disorder
  • you have been a sperm donor at another sperm bank
  • you have had sex with another man
  • you yourself is a donor child
  • you are adopted

You can apply but you must wait six months before starting if... 

  • you were tattooed or pierced
  • you had sex with a person who is presumed to have an HIV infection or a hepatitis B or hepatitis C infection (contagious hepatitis)

The above are the most significant criteria. For a complete list, click here: Danish Health Authority Guideline no. 9356 section 3.1.2.
