Why are sperm donors needed?26th July 2016
The idea of being unable to conceive a baby naturally can be emotionally difficult for both men and women, particularly those who have dreamt of starting a family for many years. Unfortunately, some people experience more difficulty than others when it gets to this stage, and it often turns out that people have been living with certain conditions that have gone undetected, but could be preventing them from having a baby.
For some male patients who have fertility problems, they may believe that using a sperm donor is a ‘last resort’, something to be discussed when all else has failed.
Typically, a couple would need to use donor sperm instead of the partner’s if, for example:
- His own sperm is of such poor quality that it could not fertilise the egg, regardless of the type of treatment used
- Previous medical treatment has left him infertile
- There is a risk of him passing on a serious genetic disorder, meaning donor sperm is the safest option for any resulting children
- He isn’t producing any sperm in his sample at all, and Surgical Sperm Retrieval techniques are not likely to be effective
Needing to use donor sperm isn’t an easy decision to come to terms with and for some patients, it can be very difficult to accept. But once that decision is reached, using a Semovo donor means there isn’t a long waiting period for the right donor to come forward.
Patients requiring donor sperm increase in number every year and we always need new sperm donors to apply at www.semovo.co.uk. Remember it’s not only heterosexual couples who need to use donor sperm to have children - we also provide donor sperm to same-sex couples and single ladies who need donor sperm to have a baby.
All registered and accepted sperm donors receive £35 remuneration each time they donate to us in recognition of their time and commitment. We take care of all your necessary screening and medical tests, and ensure you fully understand what’s expected of you both now and in the future with our thorough counselling sessions.
