The following things have to be considered before selecting a donor:
• Age should be between 21-45 years
• Preferable height should be more than 5 ft. 10”
• Examination for physical and mental stability
• Extensive examination of family history should be done to screen for any genetically inherited diseases (sickle cell anemia, cystic fibrosis etc.) Sometimes it is traced back to three generations
• Donors with a family history of diabetes and cardiovascular disorders should be rejected
• Sexual orientation of the man should be checked, if he has had homosexual relationships, his application must be rejected
• Screening for substance abuse, alcohol, tobacco, anabolic steroids or any other forms of addiction
• Testing for diseases like HIV, Hepatitis B, and Hepatitis C and other communicable diseases
• A thorough checking of blood sample, Rh factor, blood pressure, pulse, respiratory and cardiovascular systems
• The sperm sample should be analyzed for motility, number and quality. It is usually cryopreserved for 6 months to check for the same. Since the sample usually follows a freezing – thawing – insemination process, once after 6 months if the sample has all the desirable characteristics, the donor should be selected for regular donation
• A decent educational background is mandatory
