Is sperm donor treatment availble through social security? (Spain)

By Rebeca Reus BSc, MSc (embryologist).
Last Update: 07/12/2022

Yes, if the couple needs sperm donation due to poor semen quality of the male partner, donor sperm can be used. However, treatment with donor gametes is not available in all communities and centers, so you should enquire about the specific conditions of your assigned center.

In the case of women without a male partner (single women or female couples), the treatment can be performed only in those autonomous communities and centers where they are allowed to receive said treatments. Therefore, they should also request information about the specific conditions in their medical center or hospital.
