Who we are:

A centre of excellence

At VCSA, based at Vitalab Fertility Clinic in Sandton, we empower sperm donors to make a meaningful difference in helping others achieve their dream of starting a family. Our program welcomes donors from all ethnic backgrounds and races, providing patients with a diverse selection to choose from. Sperm donation in South Africa is conducted with the highest level of confidentiality to ensure privacy.

To become a sperm donor:

To qualify as a sperm donor, you’ll undergo a complimentary clinical examination, including semen evaluation and comprehensive blood and genetic tests. These tests offer valuable insights into your fertility and overall health status. We confirm the absence of diseases such as HIV, hepatitis B & C, as well as assess blood group compatibility.

Additionally, routine drug screening is conducted for all sperm donor applicants, along with genetic screening to ensure the healthiest outcomes.

For recipients:

VCSA provides access to a range of international sperm donors sourced from reputable sperm banks in the USA, aimed at helping patients achieve their dreams of parenthood. Additionally, we’re in the process of establishing a local sperm bank, and we’ll keep you informed about when donor applications will be open.

Here are the benefits of choosing an international sperm donor from VCSA:

Donors aged between 19 and 38 years.

Anonymity of donors.

Rigorous semen assessment to ensure optimal quality (count, motility, and morphology).

Detailed donor profiles including social, medical, and family background, accompanied by a baby/childhood picture.
