Today very often single women would like to have a child. The reasons why she is alone may vary, but it is usually a wise decision, because ability to produce own eggs and to carry a pregnancy decreases proportionally with age.
So a woman can freeze her own oocytes for future fertilization with a future husband or perform the IVF-treatment with donor sperm right now.
Today sperm donation is not sensation. It is worked through well and rather efficient.
There are small nuances that an intended parent should know. For example, the choice of sperm donors is usually very poor in a typical clinic. It happens because of very strict requirements for a potential donor whch few can pass. As a donor sperm chromosomes define a half of the genes of a future child (phenotype, blood group, hair and eyes color) it is possible to apply to another clinic or to a specialized sperm bank for purchasing a sample.
Another detail is legal aspect, sometimes being even more important. In Sweden, France or Switzerland, for example, sperm donation is not allowed for single women. In some Arabic countries it is totally prohibited.
It is very important to keep in the legal framework when speaking about donor anonymity. In some countries a donor cannot keep his identity in secret and there were already cases when a donor interfered in a life of an offspring.
