In Queensland, single women and lesbian couples can also access donated semen. Known donation is where a relative or friend donate their sperm to you. This form of donation is encouraged as the genetic origin of the sperm is known and the waiting time for treatment can often be reduced. Many known donors also restrict the number of families created from their donation which can be desirable for the children who are conceived as a result of the donation.

When is a Sperm Donor a Parent?
Sperm donation is a generous gift, as it offers some women and couples their only chance to have children. There is currently a shortage of sperm donors throughout Australia, so we encourage you to consider whether you could become a sperm donor, and offer the gift of a family to others. If you have previously donated to the QFG sperm donor program we encourage you to continue to make contact with our team to update medical history and contact details by calling or complete the form below. You will be reimbursed your expenses on presentation of receipts to cover travel and parking associated with donating.
You also benefit from the time and cost savings of our in-house diagnostic laboratories, and we genetically test all new patients to identify any chromosomal abnormalities that may be affecting their fertility. The clinic is open on Mondays and Wednesdays from 8. This makes the whole process easier — emotionally, physically and, of course, financially.
