We believe in your family planning project
As we believe that having children is not a question of gender but of love, at Ginemed we want to provide you with medical information regarding the options that reproductive medicine offers so that you can become mothers regardless of your family model.
Sperm donation is a voluntary, anonymous and altruistic act and therefore Spanish law does not allow the recipient to provide or choose her own donor. We are only able to provide general information about the donor (we can never reveal his identity).
All donors are of legal age and have passed a series of tests regarding their physical characteristics, immune, genetic and hereditary illnesses, and infectious and transmissible diseases.
The medical team is responsible for the donor selection process and it is their duty to choose the donor who best adapts to the characteristics of each individual case.
What will my treatment be like if I don’t live in Spain?
We know that when a woman decides she wants to become a mother she is making one of the most important decisions of her life. Because the desire to be a mother is one that crosses all races, languages and borders, our International Department wants to be by your side when you need it most in order to make your journey as pleasant as possible. Our International Department is made up of native coordinators who will accompany you before, during and after your pregnancy.

Frequently asked questions
Over the years, society has progressed and family models have become increasingly diverse. For that reason, and thanks to assisted reproduction techniques, homoparental families can also make their dream of becoming mothers come true.
Treatments are diverse, depending on the case, and will always require the use of donor sperm. Sperm donors in Spain are anonymous by law, but you will be able to select the physical characteristics you’d like your donor to have.
The most straightforward treatment to achieve a pregnancy is Artificial Insemination which consists in placing sperm inside the female’s uterus.
If you’re over 38 years of age or your clinical case requires it, the technique of choice may be In Vitro Fertilisation: one of the mothers will undergo the ovarian stimulation process to obtain several eggs which will be retrieved, fertilised, and then the resulting embryos will be transferred to the uterus.
Additionally, there is an increasing number of same sex female couples who get pregnant using the ROPA method (Reception of Oocytes from the Partner). This treatment makes it possible for both moms to participate in the process of conception and pregnancy: one woman will provide the eggs while the other will receive the embryos, get pregnant and deliver their baby.
The characteristics and features of the baby are going to resemble those of the female who provides the eggs and the male who provides the sperm. If the characteristics of the sperm donor are similar to those of the woman who receives the embryo, then it will be more likely that the baby will bear a resemblance to both women.
To avoid violating the anonymity law concerning gamete donation, the Spanish Fertility Society (SEF) legal services recommend that the two women be legally married, thus making it necessary for the couple to provide a marriage certificate.
