ARE YOU THE TYPE OF SPERM DONOR THAT’S IN DEMAND?28th July 2017
Do you have ginger hair? Then you’re in demand as a sperm donor. That’s according to a co-parenting and matching website, which recently reported a resurgence in requests for red-haired men.
So is there actually a particular type of man that’s more desirable as a sperm donor than others?
You may assume stereotypical profiles such as ‘blond hair blue eyes’, or ‘tall dark and handsome’ would be more popular, but in reality that’s not always the case.
Sperm donors needed with all physical traits
In our experience at Semovo, all the people who need to use sperm donors to conceive – single women, same-sex couples, couples with male factor infertility - each have their own very unique and individual ‘ideals’ when looking for a sperm donor.
Men who are relying on donor sperm to become a father often desire a sperm donor who they resemble. Single women may choose a sperm donor based on the characteristics they most find attractive, whilst same-sex couples may want a donor that’s a good physical blend of each partner.
No two patients’ needs are the same. And that’s why we need men with all physical characteristics to apply to be sperm donors. Because even if you don’t think you’re ‘desirable’, you’re highly likely to in fact be someone’s ideal sperm donor.
How to become a sperm donor
Becoming a sperm donor doesn’t just change lives through the gift of family. It gives you the reassurance of your own fertility. If you’re accepted as a Semovo sperm donor, you know that your sperm is superior quality, as we only accept men with excellent sperm mobility, shape and count.
If you’re interested in donating sperm, you need to fulfil various criteria including being aged 18-41, in good health and with no serious medical conditions or hereditary illnesses in your family history.
