June is LGBT+ Pride Month, an international time of celebration for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer individuals all around the world. As we have many wonderful sperm donors who are part of the LGBT+ community, we’re celebrating their commitment to helping others by exploring how sperm donation can impact the lives of LGBT+ people.

Men’s Health Week is an annual event, celebrated to give men access to the information and services they need to live healthier, longer and more fulfilling lives. This Men’s Health Week, which takes place from the 12th – 18th June, we want to offer advice that won’t just maximise your sperm health ahead of your donations – but will help you feel good too! If you've donated with us, you'll know just how sensitive your sperm can be. If not, you may be surprised to learn that any number of things, from stress to fatigue, or a lack of exercise, can affect the quality and quantity of your sperm. Discover what lifestyle changes you can make this Men’s Health Week to maximise your sperm health, and by extension your general wellbeing, ahead of your donations.

This year, in honour of LGBT+ Pride Month, we wanted to raise awareness about a common misconception - that LGBT+ people, such as gay individuals or those who are transgender, cannot donate their sperm! While also sharing helpful information for those who may be considering donating but are unsure of the criteria or if they are eligible.

This coming week is National Fertility Awareness Week. As one of the country’s leading sperm donation clinics, the team here at Semovo sees first-hand how treatment with donor sperm changes people’s lives. That’s why we strive to raise awareness about the importance of sperm donors and why we are supporting the Fertility Network this National Fertility Awareness week.
