"there is a shortage of sperm donors at several reporduktionsmottagningar around in Sweden. The waiting period to get donor sperm differ several years between the different county councils. "
"There is a shortage of sperm donors in many parts of the country. In Sweden, there are seven clinics you can donate sperm to, and all are linked to the university hospitals. "
"According to a survey by the Echo done, it shows that the availability of sperm donors differ a lot, where the waiting time of the donor can be several years in some counties. "
"According to Ann Thurin-Kjellberg, senior consultant at reproductive medicine at Sahlgrenska university hospital in Gothenburg, is because the shortage is not just solely on donors but that it is also a question of resources. "
"It's not just that we don't have enough donors, but that we have too little resources in general for operations with sperm donation," says Thurin-Kjellberg to the channel. "
"In Stockholm, Malmö and Örebro, the asset is stable, while there is a shortage in Uppsala, Umeå and Gothenburg. In Stockholm, there is no waiting period to get the donor sperm while in the Western Region will have to wait for four years on the donor sperm. "
"Since the year 2016, when the law on assisted reproduction began to include single women and women in same-sex relationships, the demand for donor sperm has increased rapidly. "
"– Our group of patients has more than doubled since 2016, while we have not received increased resources. We had an expanded budget, we had maybe been in a different situation, but now sex just longer and longer, " says Thurin-Kjellberg to the channel. "
"approved sperm donor is paid tax-free allowance of 550 per donationstillfälle. "
