Sperm donation is a procedure in which a man donates semen — the fluid containing sperm that is released during ejaculation — to help an individual or a couple conceive a baby. Donated sperm can be injected into a woman's reproductive organs intrauterine insemination or used to fertilize mature eggs in a lab in vitro fertilization. The use of donated sperm is known as third-party reproduction.
