Who We Are
VCSA empower donors to help others achieve their dream of starting a family. We accept donors of all ethnic backgrounds and races for the programme, to allow patients to select the ideal donor. Sperm donation in South Africa is completely confidential.
To be accepted as a sperm donor, you will undergo a free clinical examination, including a semen evaluation, together with blood tests, which provide valuable information regarding your own fertility and state of health.
We confirm the absence of illnesses such as Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), hepatitis B & C as well as the blood group. Routine drug screening is also performed on all sperm donor applicants.
BASIC REQUIREMENTS TO BE A SPERM DONOR
• 18 – 35 years of age
• Live in South Africa
• Currently studying at or have graduated from a tertiary institute
• Good health and non-smoker
• Drug Free
• Men of all races
Please note that should you declare that you are drug free for the last 3 months from all 5 mentioned substances, and then test positive on the urine test at your first appointment at the Clinic, you will be held liable for the fee of the urine test which is R300 payable on the day.
There are no risks associated with sperm donation
You will be compensated to the amount of R8000 for your expenses incurred. Once you commence the program, you will receive R500 after each donation. After we receive your final blood test (4 weeks after the last production), you will be reimbursed for the outstanding amount.
You have the right to quit the program at any point in time. However, all material stored at VCSA remains the property of VCSA. You will still be required to undergo a blood test 4 weeks after your last production. Once we receive your results, you will be reimbursed for the outstanding accumulative amount.
