Sperm donor program requirements are put in place for a few different reasons. It is understandable that intended parents would seek a donor who is in good health, without underlying conditions that could be passed down from one generation to the next. Donors need to be reliable and committed to the donation program’s policies, otherwise a donation cycle will be incomplete. Not everyone is a good fit for sperm donor programs based on their health, their lifestyle, and potentially their personal goals. Additionally, there is the need to understand the role of donor anonymity.
