SPERM DONORS: SUPPORTING MEN WITH INFERTILITY3rd April 2018
Did you know that male infertility is now the number one reason that couples have IVF according to fertility regulator the HFEA?
It’s not just single women and same sex couples who need sperm donors but heterosexual couples too.
Why would a man need donor sperm?
Donor sperm is needed if a man isn’t producing any sperm or has any viable sperm to use. This can be due to previous medical treatment such as chemotherapy that’s left him infertile, previous vasectomy or other medical causes.
Donor sperm is also a solution for men who have a high risk of passing on a genetic or hereditary condition.
In many cases donor sperm is used after a couple has already been through the distress of failed cycles of IVF or tried surgical sperm retrieval which has resulted in no sperm.
As a sperm donor you offer these couples the much-needed hope of a baby of their own.
