Egg and sperm donation

Donating eggs and sperm for someone else to use

Sometimes, people need help from egg or sperm donors to help them get pregnant because their own eggs or sperm are not of a good enough quality.  Egg and sperm donation is also a way of helping same-sex couples to have a baby.  

Egg or sperm donation is a remarkable and special thing to consider. It is a voluntary act of kindness to help another woman or couple to achieve their dream of having a family. In the UK, donating eggs or sperm is a gift, like blood and organ (kidney, heart etc) donation.

If you are interested in being an egg or sperm donor, first of all, thank you, and secondly, please read our patient information booklets for more information or get in touch for more detail about how your thoughtfulness could help someone else have a family.
