Fertility treatment with donor sperm

At Complete Fertility Centre Southampton we have a large quality sperm bank for our patients who require donor sperm.

One of the things that we are most proud of is our donor insemination programme. We have a wide selection of donors available for use in donor insemination, IVF and ICSI treatment for single womensame sex women and heterosexual couples.


Who can donor sperm help?

In heterosexual couples, if the male partner in the relationship has a very low sperm count or no sperm then donor sperm insemination may be an appropriate treatment option.

Single women and same sex couples may also choose to use our sperm donor insemination programme. We are proud of our reputation for offering donor insemination to ladies in a same sex relationship and also those who are single.

What are the treatment options with donor sperm?

Depending on the factors involved and in consultation with your doctor, donor sperm may be used in combination with IUI, IVF, ICSIegg sharingIVF with donor sperm and partner to partner sharing, and IVF with donor sperm and donor eggs.

Who are the sperm donors?

All our high quality donor sperm is rigorously screened and the donors have full medical histories taken. The sperm is frozen and quarantined prior to use. All donors are anonymous, but if a child is born, then the child may contact the donor from their 18th birthday if they wish.

Choosing a sperm donor

Patients can select donors based on their physical characteristics and their employment, education and hobbies. Patients can view and select our donors online at home, and will be given access to our donor website once they have attended implications counselling.

All our donors are invited to write a pen portrait that includes a description about them and a goodwill message intended for any child or children born as a result of their donation.

Donor-conceived people have a range of reasons for wanting to know about their donor. Some are curious about why their donor donated and if they have children of their own, others want to know where their physical and emotional characteristics might come from. We encourage our donors to include information about their education, achievements, views, values and life experiences.

This all-important information enables parents of a donor-conceived child to talk to them about their origins as they grow up. A donor’s pen portrait is available for you to read when you are choosing your donor.

Can I use donor sperm from eslewhere?

If we don’t have a donor that suits the characteristics that you are looking for, you can import a donor from elsewhere so that you can still have your treatment here and get a donor who suits you.
