Sperm donation

Who needs a sperm donation?

Sperm donation can help a wide range of people such as:

  • Heterosexual couples who are having problems with conceiving due to the male’s infertility
  • Single women who are wanting to have a baby with no male partner present
  • A female homosexual couple who want to have a baby

How can you get pregnant from donated sperm?

  • Artificial insemination

This increases the possibility of getting pregnant by the procedure of inserting the donated sperm directly in to the woman’s uterus. This procedure is also known as donor insemination.

  • In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF)

IVF involves using the donated sperm to fertilise the egg in an incubator outside of the body. The sperm helps to create the embryo which is then transferred back into the uterus.

There are many things to consider before IVF treatment which are discussed here. 

Egg donation

Who can benefit from donated eggs?

Egg donation can provide the chance to have a baby for women who are unable to use or produce their own eggs due to issues such as:

  • Poor egg quality
  • Ovarian failure due to medical procedures (chemotherapy, radiotherapy etc.)
  • Absence of own ovaries
  • Premature menopause
  • Genetic disorder carriers
  • Poor response to hormonal stimulation
