HOW WE ENSURE DONOR SPERM CAN BE USED SUCCESSFULLY13th February 2018
Lots of fertility clinics need sperm donors – so why should you donate sperm to Semovo?
Apart from the fact that we make it convenient and easy thanks to our regional sperm donation locations in Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds and Glasgow, we do everything we can to ensure your donated sperm offers the highest chance of pregnancy for those who need it.
The success of our sperm donors in helping people conceive is one of the reasons why we’re now one of the biggest sperm banks in the UK – because men know that their generous donation is worthwhile when they donate to Semovo.
Here are just a few of the ways we help your sperm to success:
- We control all aspects of the freezing process for your sperm, ensuring it’s safely and carefully cryopreserved so it’s viable for use in fertility treatment when someone chooses you as their sperm donor.
- We’re responsible for your sperm at every stage of its journey, from the moment of donation at your local Semovo clinic to arrival at a patient’s clinic for fertility treatment. We use special medical couriers to safely transport your sperm.
- By donating to a licensed sperm bank, your sperm will be used in fertility treatments at licensed clinics. This means your sperm has a much higher chance of pregnancy than donation through risky unlicensed ‘DIY’ means to someone privately.
- Donation through a regulated sperm bank also means thorough health screening not just for you as the sperm donor but for those seeking treatment, enabling fertility doctors to identify the very best route to pregnancy for the person using your donated sperm.
- When you donate to Semovo, your sperm has the potential to help people conceive no matter where they live. We provide donor sperm to NHS and private licensed clinics all around the UK.
Safe sperm donation: Protection for sperm donors
Donating sperm to Semovo is also the safest way for you to become a sperm donor. As a registered Semovo sperm donor you’re protected by law – you’re not the legal parent of any child born or have any financial responsibilities to any children you help to create. You’re also limited to creating a maximum 10 families only.
As for anonymity, all sperm donors in the UK must agree to be identifiable to donor-conceived children. But it’s up to the person who’s donor-conceived to take that step - and they can only do this once they turn 18 and apply to the HFEA for information about you.
When you become a sperm donor you also get a full semen analysis too – giving you useful information about your own fertility that you might not be aware of.
So why not consider being a sperm donor? If you’re aged 18-45, apply to Semovo online with no obligation.
