Become a Sperm Donor

Sperm Donors Needed – this life changing donation won’t cost you a cent

Most people assume that pregnancy will happen naturally when they are ready to start a family. But for many individuals and couples, sperm donors can be their only chance of having a family. Around 1 in 25 men are unable to father a child because of medical or genetic reasons. The realisation that help is needed to have a baby can be devastating. Single women, or those in same sex relationships may also rely on donor sperm to achieve a pregnancy.
If you fulfil the following criteria, you may be able to donate sperm:

  • You are aged 18-45 years of age
  • You are in good health
  • You can provide a medical history of you and your family
  • You are in a low risk group for sexually transmitted and certain other diseases


We try to make the whole process of becoming a sperm donor as easy as possible. If you think you may be able to help, the first step is to discuss the issue with your partner, if you have one, as they will need to support you in your decision.
Once you have decided you may be able to help, a nursing coordinator will guide you through the following steps:

    This includes a questionnaire, blood tests and fertility assessment
    If you have a partner, they will also need to be involved in the counselling process.
    On average, 8 – 10 Semen samples are required
