Directed Donor Screening of Father(s)

Since the embryo will ultimately be transferred to surrogate, the FDA requires that sperm providers be screened for infectious diseases within 7 days of giving sperm. This includes a questionnaire, a physical examination and blood tests for STIs such as Hepatitis, HIV and Syphilis among others. Santa Monica Fertility makes this easy by performing all tests at one visit. Sperm frozen within 7 days of performing these tests becomes “qualified” and can be used at anytime in the future.
