FIVE REASONS TO DONATE SPERM TO SEMOVO21st February 2017
There are many fertility clinics around the UK that recruit their own sperm donors, but your experience as a sperm donor will differ at each one.
Whilst every clinic has to abide by the same Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA) rules for sperm donors, each clinic will have its own approach to sperm donation- and it’s this that makes all the difference to your experience and how you feel about it.
At Semovo, we’re dedicated to ensuring that your time as sperm donor with us is memorable for all the right reasons. Here are five reasons why you should choose Semovo as your sperm donor bank if you’re interested in sperm donation:
Over 30 years of sperm donor expertise
Did you know that we’ve been supporting and caring for men who want to donate sperm for over 30 years?
Our many years of experience has given us a unique insight into why men wish to become sperm donors, and what we need to do to make that journey the most rewarding it can be.
So although we may be a ‘new’ nationwide sperm bank, our long-standing, heritage is your reassurance that you’ll only ever receive the most exceptional care from our team every step of the way.
Local Semovo sperm donation clinics
We’re the only sperm donor bank in the UK to have a network of regional donation clinics. But why is this important? We know from our expertise that convenience is a must-have requirement for men who want to donate sperm. So our regional sperm donor clinics in Liverpool, Leeds, Manchester and soon London, Glasgow and Birmingham make it easy for you to donate locally.
We don’t expect you to make the journey to one central donation location like other sperm banks do. Sperm donation should fit your needs, not ours. Our clinics are easy to get to, so you can donate when it suits – at weekends, on your way to work, or on your way home.
Award-winning personal support for sperm donors
The original sperm donor programme at Manchester Fertility from which Semovo evolved was the first in the UK to achieve a Centre of Excellence award from the National Gamete Donation Trust.
It means that we’ve been recognised for valuing all the selfless and generous guys who choose to donate their sperm, simply to help people have a family.
It’s your guarantee that at Semovo, you’ll only ever be treated with the dignity, respect and sensitivity you deserve, with the highest standards of personal care and support throughout from our dedicated Donation Teams.
Transparent and informed sperm donation process
We’ll tell you everything you need to know about what being a sperm donor really means for you. Our counsellors will discuss the implications of being a sperm donor with you early in the sperm donation process.
Because it’s vital that you fully understand every aspect of sperm donation, its legalities, your rights and the rights of people who use your sperm to have a baby and the child they have. So you can make the decision to be a Semovo sperm donor with confidence.
Semovo: Changing lives through sperm donation
When you donate your sperm to Semovo, your sperm could be used to help patients from anywhere in the UK to have a family. We’re a nationwide sperm bank, which means we deliver our donor’s sperm samples to patients and clinics around the country. By donating to Semovo, you’ll be ensuring that all those who need donor sperm – from couples with male fertility problems to single women and same-sex couples - can get the treatment they need to have a baby safely with no waiting list, no matter where they live.
