Abstract

Artificial insemination with semen from a donor is a well established procedure for childless couples in whom the male partner is infertile. The serious consequences to the mother and fetus of the many bacterial and viral infections that can be transmitted in semen have recently been reviewed. There are no data on the prevalence of sexually transmitted diseases in potential semen donors, but screening is now recommended. We studied urethral and serological evidence of infection in a group of such men.
