Are there any risks associated with assisted reproduction treatments using donated sperm?

By Juan José Espinós Gómez M.D., Ph.D. (gynecologist).
Last Update: 07/12/2022

If the regulations established by the Spanish law of assisted reproduction are complied with, the use of donor sperm for reproductive purposes can be considered as "highly safe". In fact, the tests carried out on the donor will entail a lower risk of transmission of genetic or infectious diseases, than couples seeking pregnancy who have not been previously tested, having unprotected sex.

In spite of all the studies that are carried out, there will always be what we call a "residual risk", which is linked to diseases that have not yet been studied or diseases that we do not know how to study.
