DOES MY SEXUALITY STOP ME FROM DONATING SPERM?24th August 2017
At Semovo we welcome and receive sperm donor applications from all kinds of men, from all walks of life, with all kinds of sexual preferences.
Because your sexual orientation doesn’t matter if you want to be a Semovo sperm donor. Whether you’re gay, straight, or bisexual - if you have sperm to donate and meet our criteria you’re welcome to apply to us.
Sperm donor screening: Equality for all
All Semovo sperm donors have to pass the same screening tests. You won’t be screened any differently because of your sexual habits. As long as your health tests are clear, you can donate sperm.
At Semovo we perform genetic screening as well as testing for diseases and sexually-transmitted infections, in accordance with the HFEA’s strict screening guidelines.
We do ask that you don’t put yourself at risk of STIs during your time as a sperm donor with us, so it’s essential that you always practise safe sex with your chosen partner.
You’ll be re-screened every six months for specific conditions, and again before all your donated samples are released for patient use.
Sperm donor support: Dignity and respect for all
All Semovo sperm donors are treated in exactly the same way: With the dignity, sensitivity, care and respect they deserve.
Sexuality has no bearing on how you’ll be perceived or accepted as a sperm donor with us. You can look forward to a personalised and tailored sperm donor experience with the highest standards of care from our professional team.
Sperm donors in demand
Sperm donors are more in demand than ever, as single women and same-sex female couples build their families. Some LGBT patients may prefer a sperm donor from within the UK LGBT community. So although you’re not required to, you can specify your sexuality in your Semovo sperm donor profile if you wish.
