Known sperm donors
This procedure applies when a patient or a couple wants to use sperm from a known donor, which would then be hers/theirs to use exclusively. This procedure is also known as a “directed donation.”
The use of donor sperm (known or anonymous) that has not been processed in compliance with Health Canada guidelines is prohibited.
A patient who opts to use sperm from a known donor should expect to wait approximately 10 months before she can begin her treatments.
The donor’s file must be processed by clinique ovo and approved by Health Canada.
The patient or the couple must assume the full cost of all tests.
