Abstract

This study outlines a structured protocol for the recruitment and screening of semen donors for an artificial insemination by donor programme. One-hundred-and-ninety-one potential semen donors were assessed. A step-wise analysis of these potential semen donors is presented, reasons for and rates of rejection at each stage are documented and explained. The majority of the potential donors were rejected on the basis of unacceptable semen analysis. A simple, structured approach to the assessment of potential semen donors is proposed.
