Clinics have separate dedicated sperm production rooms and adult material in most formats (magazines, TV, DVD, etc.) will be available in these rooms. You are welcome to take your own adult material with you. If you have a particular preference of adult material then you can take it to the clinic with you. Alternatively, check beforehand whether your clinic provides that type of adult material.
Although technically you could probably still donate, in reality it’s likely that you won’t be able to. Clinics would want to explore why you’d want to go ahead without your family’s support – this would probably be taken to a clinic ethics meeting to discuss and the chances are that you wouldn’t be allowed to go ahead.
Yes but realistically imposing conditions can limit the number of times your donation can be used in treatments. Most donors’ conditions are connected to issues around religion and culture. In the case of known donation, the donation is conditional upon it being used by a particular recipient.
Your clinic will want to gather as much information from you as it can about your condition so that it can make a decision on an individual and personal basis about whether you can be a sperm donor. Clinics recognise and acknowledge that everyone’s health and medical backgrounds are different.
While all donors now have to be identifiable, there is no law that says all donor-conceived people must know of their genetic origins. Some families are very open with their children about their genetic origins while other families don’t tell at all.
