How to become a sperm donor?
Basic requirements for sperm donors are the following:
1) You must be between 18 and 40 years old.
2) You must be negative for infectious diseases such as HIV, Hepatitis B (HBSAg test) and hepatitis C (HCV test) and remain negative until 6 months after the last donation.
3) You need to have a semen evaluation to see if your semen is sufficient quality for the donation process.
If you fulfill these requirements, you qualify as a semen donor!!
How does sperm donation work?
You simply have to present in your local sperm bank and give a sample. The sample will be cryopreserved for future use.
Will I get paid to be a sperm donor?
You will not get paid as such because the act is ‘donation’. However you are allowed by the HFEA to get £35 per visit, to cover expenses. Outside the UK, prices may vary but are usually around this amount.
How many times can I donate?
There is a 10 family limit in the UK, and other countries have similar limits. Therefore individual centres may impose a limit on the number of times you can donate.
Will I ever meet the recipient?
You will never meet the recipient, but any children resulting from the donation do have the right to trace you in the UK. Therefore, you are required to leave traceable information in the IVF clinic. For your part, you can find out whether children were born with your semen by contacting the clinic. In other countries where donation is anonymous, neither yourself nor any children resulting from the act can find out about you.
What if I want to donate sperm privately?
In the UK, you are not named as the father and no-one can request money for the children if you donate sperm through a licensed centre. Outside of these centres, this is not the case. Therefore we recommend you donate exclusively through HFEA-licensed centres.
