Becoming a Sperm Donor in the UK
There are lots of couples who need help to become pregnant. For many couples they rely on the donation of sperm in order to achieve their dream of starting a family. There is currently a massive shortage of sperm donors in the UK which puts a huge emotional strain on single women, lesbian couples and heterosexual couples who are waiting for donor sperm.
Making a sperm donation in the UK could help a couple have a child and provide one of the greatest gifts. Donors can feel immense satisfaction in knowing they have helped someone have a baby. If you are a man aged between 18-40 and in good health, you can donate. It is important to consider the implications donating sperm may have on you and your family so take as much advice as you can.
Using Donor Sperm in the UK
Using donor sperm can be a great way to help you start your family. Approximately 800 babies are born in the UK each year from donated sperm and the number of lesbian couples undergoing fertility treatment doubled in 2010.
Waiting times for Sperm Donation in UK
The waiting lists for sperm donation vary widely between different UK clinics so we recommend you contact as many clinics located near to where you live as possible. Remember you can find your donor right here with us and then approach a clinic. Your donor sperm will have to be frozen for at least 6 months so allow time for both health screening tests and the sperm to be frozen.
Sperm Donation and the Law
Children born from sperm donations have a right to ask The Human Fertilisation & Embryology Authority (HFEA): www.hfea.gov.uk for the donors identity when they reach age 18 or older.
Since October 2009 donors can now ask for any information about themselves that is held by the HFEA. Sperm donors have a right to find out if their donation has been successful; the number of children born as a result of their donation, their sex and year of birth.
Sperm donors will not be named on the birth certificate and you have no legal, financial or social obligations to any child created from your donation either now or when they reach the age of 18. In the UK donors may claim expenses incurred in connection with the donating sperm, such as the cost of childcare, travel costs and other out-of-pocket expenses.
