Are there sperm banks in Spain and do clinics use sperm from these banks or also from overseas?

Yes, there are sperm banks in Spain. Usually, the assisted reproduction clinics themselves have their own bank, so that donors come to the clinic to make the donation. There is also an independent Spanish bank, which does not depend on any clinic and supplies those centers that need it.

If a patient has unusual physical characteristics and no compatible donor can be found, the clinic can request samples from a foreign bank.
