BABY HOPES: THE DIFFERENCE YOUR DONOR SPERM MAKES19th January 2017
There’s Fiona, who’s just welcomed baby Rory. “I just wanted to update you on the new arrival in my house following donor insemination treatment….it already seems hard to imagine life without him.”
Rebecca and Ruth had daughter Matilda. “Thank you…from the bottom of our hearts for our beautiful daughter Matilda…we don’t know what we ever did before she came along.”
This is the difference your sperm donation makes. It’s the difference between someone having a family, and having no hope of a family.
Your sperm will be used across different fertility treatments to help people conceive, from same-sex couples to single women and couples with male fertility issues. It may be used in IVF or ICSI – which is a refinement of IVF where a single, healthy sperm is injected into the egg to fertilise it. Or it might be used for donor sperm insemination.
Whether your recipient becomes pregnant after their treatment is dependent on a number of factors, each individual to the patient. These include the age of your recipient, her own fertility status and whether there are any existing fertility issues to consider. But all Semovo donor sperm is of the highest quality thanks to our strict screening processes, to maximise chances of pregnancy.
So how likely is it that you’d be chosen as a sperm donor in the first place, by people like Fiona, Rebecca and Ruth? Women who need donor sperm have their own individual preferences, but all choose their donor using a Semovo sperm donor profile.
This profile is one of the most important pieces of paperwork in the whole sperm donation process. Natalie, who had a baby girl through her first treatment attempt thanks to one of our sperm donors, even comments in her testimonial how impressed she was with the profile she received.
Your sperm donor profile is your opportunity to tell potential patients who you are as a person. Why you decided to donate. What your interests are. You can even write a message to any child that’s born. These personal touches are the Semovo difference, and if you’re unsure what to write in your profile don’t worry – our dedicated Donation Team at each Semovo donation clinic will help you.
So now you can see what sperm donation really means. It means a life-changing experience. For patients who have a child thanks to you, and for you as the sperm donor. You get to know that your time, commitment and generosity has created a life. There’s no greater gift you can give.
