The purpose of this section is to help potential donors explore the implications of donating sperm using several methods of treatment ranging from the simpler methods such as DI to the more complicated, such as IVF and/or ICSI with donated sperm. This booklet is certainly not meant to replace the opportunity for you to discuss the questions with a counsellor. It may however help to remind you of those discussions, so that you can explore them further. You should not feel under pressure when making up your mind.
