Many facilities require that their sperm donors be between 5'10" and 6'2''.

You Have To Give A Good Sample: Lastly, after the man has passed the screening test, he has to provide a good sample to the clinic. Donors are asked to abstain from ejaculation (from sex or masturbation) for at least 2 days or 5 days prior to the donation date. This helps in giving a higher count and a better quality of sperm.
