Good Quality: The Routinization of Sperm Banking in China

Ayo Wahlberg


From crude and uneasy beginnings, sperm banking has become a routine part of China’s pervasive and restrictive reproductive complex within the space of thirty years. It covers the introduction of assisted reproductive technologies (ARTs) to China to address infertility, the expansion of the use of donor sperm in cases in which the male partner suffers from a genetic disease, and other issues, such as the availability and screening of potential sperm donors.

Keywords: sperm donors, sperm banking, artificial insemination, infertility, family planning, China
