Sperm Donation

Couples and singles alike may choose to use anonymous or known donor sperm. Patients can secure donor sperm by ordering through a sperm bank or by choosing someone they know to act as their sperm donor. Patients may decide to use a sperm donor due to the male having a low sperm count, or because they simply do not have a male partner but still want to create a baby.

Wisconsin Fertility Institute has an approved list of sperm banks from which we will accept anonymous donor sperm. Click here for a listing. If you do not see a particular bank on this list, please let us know, and we will see if they meet our criteria.

Frozen Sperm for Home Use

If you are considering using frozen sperm for home insemination, we strongly encourage you to use a sperm bank that will ship the sperm directly to your home.  Many banks provide that service.


Intrauterine Insemination or IUI – Donor or Frozen Sperm

Intrauterine Insemination, also called IUI or artificial insemination, is the process of placing the best sperm inside the uterus. This procedure improves the chances of a pregnancy.


Instructions for Directed Sperm Donor

These procedures can be performed 7 days a week, except for Christmas and New Year’s Day.  We ask that you collect the specimen here at WFI unless you live within 20 minutes of the clinic.


Sperm Bank Information

Patients who wish to use anonymous donor sperm need to select a commercial sperm bank, order their specimens, and arrange for their payment and shipment to our laboratory.
