Single women and same-sex couples

Sperm donors are recruited from a wide range of backgrounds. They are required to be fit and healthy, with no family history of hereditary disease. Donors are screened for a variety of infectious conditions, including HIV and hepatitis, and for some genetic conditions, according to national guidelines.

As far as possible we try to match donor characteristics to the patient’s requirements - ethnicity, skin, hair/eye colour, height etc.

Donor sperm can be used in conjunction with artificial insemination, IVF or ICSI.
