Thinking of becoming a sperm donor?

Thank you for showing an interest in becoming a sperm donor. Donating your sperm is a generous and positive act.

Donor sperm brings hope to many couples and individuals who would love to have a child of their own but are unable to without this gift. Some men have a very low sperm count or no sperm for a variety of reasons or there may be no partner.

Many donors feel very positive about giving this gift and helping others achieve their only hope of having a child by donating sperm. Sperm donors receive £35 per visit (£525 for 15 samples) plus a free fertility check and infection screening.

Here we outline what is involved in donating sperm and what you should consider.

Messages from sperm donors at Complete Fertility

"After reading an article in the paper about donating and helping others, I finally decided to take the plunge and go and donate. It's not an easy thing to discuss with strangers but I soon found a friendly, professional team that put me at ease and allowed me to speak freely about any questions or concerns.

With flexible donation times around work commitments and no pressure to get it all over, as soon as possible, Complete Fertility provides a relaxed atmosphere that revolves around you.

Although you never meet the 'family to be', seeing others in the waiting room ready to receive donations from those that have gone before me, gives you pride to feel that soon you will bring happiness to others that are less fortunate than yourself.

Do not feel it's all over afterwards; if you wish the staff can keep you updated on how its all going and how many you have helped.

So if you are thinking about donating, think no more, go do it, the thought of bringing happiness to others is a great reward in itself for your efforts."

"My partner and I were unsuccessful in our IVF attempts. We know first hand how painful it is not to have children; you never get over it and it's always at the back of your mind.

So I was completely overjoyed to hear of the successful births from my donations - so pleased for the parents and that I could help."

"My reasons for becoming a donor were a combination of several factors that happened over the last few years that proved to me that this was something I should consider doing.

I had reached an age where I thought I was in good health and physical condition to become what I hoped would be a suitable donor. I felt that if I was to have children then this would be possibly the best time for me, although the opportunity for this to happen in the usual way was possibly not likely for several years if at all. From a personal point of view I felt that if I was to be a donor then I would like to do it at what I considered to be the right time.

I had recently become an uncle to two wonderful nephews and seeing them grow made me realise that potentially I had good genes that should really be passed on, I already knew that my family history was good from a health point of view, so I couldn't see any reason why if I had the ability to become a parent, but I was not using that ability, then I should not try to help others who were not in the same position.

Finally after attending the initial introductory visit to the clinic and being told that my donation would be of a good suitability, and after passing all the required health checks, then it seemed like all the signals were right and that I had the ability and the interest that were necessary, to help others who would make great parents but for whatever reason then they were not able to."

Message from a donor sperm recipient

"Our lives, since having the children are 100% better than we could have ever dreamed. Nothing we can say can ever come close to thanking the man who made this possible.

For many years we were broken hearted. Now we have a normal and very happy family. Our lives have been totally transformed thanks to our donor - thank you.

Each night we tuck up our treasured, bright, wonderful little girl and our completely mad, sweet, beloved little boy - because of the generosity of just one man. Thank you."
