Growing interest in assisted reproduction, sperm donors, however, is the lack of

According to the latest data, the Institute of Health Information and Statistics (IHIS) in the Czech Republic started increasing number of cycles of assisted reproduction. In 2013 it was among Czechs launched more than 21,000 cycles, which is 17% more than it was in 2011. At the same time increases according to experts, the demand for sperm donors. But their numbers have stagnated and there are so current shortage. Candidates had often do not pass the set criteria.

To the cycles of assisted reproduction falls only attempt to get pregnant immediately. It is also about egg donation and cryopreservation of their own eggs or embryos. Yet according ÚZIS did in 2013, the proportion of cycles in order to treat infertility (IVF), nearly 13 thousand. However, experts are beginning to be seen associated issue - with sperm donors. "The number of Czechs who decide to sperm donation, has been stagnant for some time. Demand for them but on the contrary, continues to increase and we can say that there are currently more relative scarcity, "confirms the negative trend gynecologist and sexologist MD. Paul Turčan that lead donor to donate various reasons. One group wants to help infertile couples and a financial reward for the donation and for them is not significant. The second part of men, especially students, sees the donation rather some form of extra income.

One of the major factors that influence the amount of sperm donors, may be requirements for themselves. Those many candidates do not meet, since the rules for assessing the quality and suitability of the material for donors are much stricter. While on meeting standards when testing is sufficient sperm concentration of 15 million sperm per 1 ml, as a donor if a man has failed to 20,000,000. With the ever deteriorating quality of sperm in men it can then be a problem, according to experts.

"The sperm donors are being monitored all the basic parameters of the standard sperm. Thus, the volume, consistency, and the pH of liquefaction of the ejaculate, sperm concentration, motility and morphology. Major donors for inclusion are primarily sperm concentration, total sperm motility and morphology. On sperm donors, however, are significantly higher requirements than those which shows the current standard of the World Health Organization, "says the head of the Centre of Assisted Reproduction CAR 01 Brno Prof. MD. Paul Ventruba, MD., MBA.

Impaired sperm quality may however, according to doctors men to some extent improve yourself. "If a man decides to become a donor, they would have to adjust diet. Begin to move, do not smoke, limit alcohol and caffeine excessively. It should also, at least temporarily restrict the sauna and overheating of the testicles, must work with a laptop on his lap. I recommend the diet should include foods and supplements with royal jelly and antioxidants type Fertilan or products containing inositol, "says MD. Paul Turčan.

Donors are also tested for example serious genetic diseases or sexually transmitted diseases. In their personal and family medical history should be present psychiatric disorders should be non-smokers, free from drug abuse. They should also comply with age. "Sperm donor must be healthy man aged forty years, which has normal sperm, and genetic testing with a normal karyotype. At the same time it must be a man with negative test results for sexually transmitted diseases, namely HIV-1 and 2, syphilis, hepatitis B and C, Chlamydia trachomatis, "explains the director of the Prague Institute for the Care of Mother and Child, doc. MD. Jaroslav Feyereisl, PhD.
