There will be several screening tests we perform before you’re able to become a sperm donor, including screening for sexually transmitted infections and certain genetic diseases. It may take a few months to get the results.
We will also take a comprehensive medical history of you and your family, to ensure the welfare of the child and prevent any serious medical conditions.
Counselling is provided so you have a chance to discuss the implications of your donation in full before you consider this process further. For example the impact on your family and especially any children you may have already. These appointments take place remotely and we will provide you with contact details so you can organise a time directly.
You will then need to make several visits to the clinic and your sperm is frozen while we match you with a recipient. Your sperm will be used in artificial insemination (IUI) or in vitro fertilisation treatment (IVF).
