How does sperm donation work?
Our sperm banks have developed an efficient donation process specifically designed to accommodate the busy lives of our donors while ensuring the highest level of care and support. The process can be broken down into the following steps:
- To begin the process, you’ll fill out a short online questionnaire and confirm your eligibility. This includes being aged 18-45, in good health, and being able to access your family's medical history.
- You will then complete an electronic family medical history form, detailing any health conditions affecting your close relatives.
- You’ll then be invited to an implications telephone appointment, discussing everything involved in the process and a great opportunity for you to ask any questions.
- This will be followed by a sperm assessment, conducted in our clinic, to check your sperm quality is eligible for donation.
- If you meet the criteria, you will then have sessions with a counsellor and with a consultant. You’ll also have a health screening appointment to check for STIs and genetic conditions.
- Once approved, you will sign the relevant consent forms, making you an official Semovo sperm donor, and proceed with regular sperm donation. Your samples are frozen and quarantined for safety before being released for use.

Are sperm donors paid?
In the UK it is illegal for sperm donors to receive payment for their donations. However, we do offer compensation to cover any expenses related to the contribution, including getting to our sperm bank. At Semovo, you can expect to receive compensation as follows:
- Upon your first semen assessment at the clinic, you will receive a compensation of £20, irrespective of whether you are taken on as a sperm donor or not.
- The £35 compensation starts when you first visit the clinic for the medical screening.
- At Semovo we split the compensation up into a £25 payment that is available for bank transfer after each visit to the clinic, and then the remaining £10 is accrued during your time as a donor. The accrued amount will then be paid as a lump sum after your final screening when all your sperm is released for treatment use.
- Depending on your clinic visits, you could receive up to £140 monthly, based on an estimated one donation per month.
- The sperm donation process typically takes 6-12 months, depending on how often you donate. Some donors visit us weekly, but we accommodate different schedules. We're here to make it work for you.
