A sperm bank (cryobank) is specially licensed enterprise that collects and stores sperm from volunteers. The majority of people using stored third party sperm are heterosexual infertile couples and lesbian couples. Besides volunteers, sperm donors are also men facing medically treatments that may affect their sperm quality and production, and men at risk for an environmental accident that could leave him infertile. Pregnancy achieved using donor sperm is no different from a pregnancy achieved using partner sperm. The sperm bank can provide to their clients safe, disease-tested sperm from a wide selection of screened and tested anonymous donors, with comprehensive physical and intellectual information about them. However, many questions surrounding sperm banks are still the subject of intensive ethical and medico-ethical discussions. The main concerns are related to: the rights of the sperm donor, the rights of the clients, the rights of the donor-conceived children, as well as the criteria by which sperm are collected and the number of children that can be conceived by one man sperm. Altogether, third-party reproduction is a complex process requiring consideration of social, ethical, and legal issues.
