Donor insemination is a method of conception using a registered donor’s sperm.
For couples undergoing IVF or ICSI treatment we will need to manually collect eggs produced by your ovaries.
You can use donated eggs if you do not have any eggs of your own or they are very low in numbers. Donated eggs are fertilised in our specialist laboratory with your partner’s sperm, then transferred to you.
For some couples egg sharing is an option which can allow them to help another couple who cannot produce their own eggs whilst receiving fertility treatment themselves.
Our assisted conception experts can advise you on the storage of embryos for future treatment cycles.

There is an increasing demand for treatment using sperm donation and a supply shortage in the UK.
Men who have a problem producing a semen sample on the day of egg collection or who have had a procedure or illness that may impact the production of semen may opt for sperm freezing.
Surgical sperm retrieval is usually performed as a day case. The type of procedure will depend on the medical reason for lack of sperm production.
