FROM DONOR TO PATIENT: WHERE DOES YOUR DONOR SPERM GO?
As one of the UK’s largest sperm banks, Semovo is helping people across the country to have a baby with the help of our amazing sperm donors.
But how does Semovo donor sperm get from sperm donor to patient? When you donate your sperm to us, we supply it to both NHS and private fertility clinics and patients.
It’s a patient-focused, ethical and cost-effective process designed to ensure that anyone that needs donor sperm can get the treatment they need, using safe health-screened sperm from our identifiable and traceable UK sperm donors.
Semovo: Helping patients who need donor sperm
People who need donor sperm – from single women to same-sex couples and couples with male fertility problems – can order donor sperm from Semovo directly.
We will deliver sperm to a clinic of their choice so they have the reassurance of using a registered, licensed clinic for their treatment. Clinics must have an agreement with Semovo for us to deliver our donor sperm. We do not supply our sperm to patients to be used in unlicensed situations – such as ‘at home’ insemination.
All our donor sperm is transparently priced, and available for immediate dispatch. Patients are given access to the Semovo sperm donor catalogue, and advice from our dedicated Donation Teams, to help them choose the right sperm donor for them.
By supplying donor sperm to patients this way, they are free to have donor sperm treatment at any fertility clinic of their choice, whether it’s an NHS clinic or private fertility clinic, without worrying about sperm donor availability or joining a waiting list.
Semovo: A trusted source of donor sperm for clinics
Many fertility clinics both NHS and private don’t have the resources to operate their own sperm donor bank. That’s where Semovo comes in.
We ensure clinics can offer donor sperm treatments quickly with no waiting list, giving their patients all the benefits of using identifiable and traceable UK sperm donors instead of relying on imported sperm.
Doctors and clinic staff use our sperm donor catalogue to offer patients a choice of Semovo sperm donors, with the reassurance that all our sperm donors have been screened to strict Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA) standards, implications counselled by our teams and that our donor sperm is safe and ready to use in treatments.
