IVF with donor sperm

CREATE Fertility offer IVF and IUI treatments using donor sperm. We can help you find a sperm donor or we can support you if you are using sperm from another sperm bank. Making the decision to do IVF using a sperm donor to get pregnant has been very successful for heterosexual, lesbian couples and single women.

Next step
  • Virtual Consultation

    The first step in your journey will be a Virtual Consultation with one of our highly experienced Fertility Consultants, which you can do via video or phone, from your own home.

  • Blood tests

    Following this appointment you will be required to have the following blood tests: Hepatitis B Surface Antigen, Hepatitis B Core Antibody, Hepatitis C and HIV.

  • Counselling session

    Due to the implications of using a sperm donor you must have a counselling session prior to receiving treatment. You will be offered a counselling session through our independent counsellor. Please note, there may be an additional charge for this.

  • Treatment Consultation

    The next stage is a treatment consultation with our nursing team. The treatment protocol will be explained, you will be shown how to administer your medication, and any questions you have will be answered

  • Organising the donor sperm

    If you are having treatment with donor sperm our donor team will help you to fill in the required consent forms. If you are using donor sperm from an outside source they will give you advice on how to transfer this over to the clinic; we must have this in the clinic before treatment can commence.

How to choose a sperm donor

We work with only recognised and licensed donor banks to provide the best quality sperm. All sperm donors have to be in good health and are screened for sexually transmitted diseases and some genetic disorders. The sperm is assessed as high quality before being approved for donation.

However, there are a number of different sperm banks available if you prefer to use your own; if you have any questions about this process please discuss with your consultant.

 

Things to consider

  • We can utilise IUI ready or ICI unwashed for any treatment. We can store the samples at CREATE, after 1 year you would be required to pay the current ‘Annual Storage fee’. Storage costs £385 per year.
  • One straw/ampule should be enough for 1 treatment cycle, however, due to the transport costs you may wish to purchase more than 1 to cover for repeat cycles/sibling cycles.
  • We would advise obtaining MOT 10 (MOT is short for motility) or higher, should only MOT 5 be available we would advise to purchase at least 2 samples.

 

Legal implications and donor anonymity

It is important to remember that after completion of the appropriate consent forms, you will be regarded as the legal parents or any child born as a result of the treatment. The donor will not be financially or emotionally liable for the upbringing of any child created using the donor’s sperm.

Since 2005 donors in the UK are no longer anonymous. Anyone conceived using donated sperm will be allowed to ask the HFEA for identifying information about the donor when they reach the age of 18, (or 16 if they are planning to marry). They will be able to find out who the donor is and may want to get in touch with them.
