Donor Sperm

For Individuals or Couples

Using donor sperm to grow your family

There are many reasons why a person or a couple may need to use donor sperm on their journey to parenthood. Donor sperm can be used for IUI, IVF/ICSI as well as Reciprocal IVF.

We work with the European Sperm Bank in order to provide our patients with the highest standard of sperm available. Our unique patient portal allows you to order your sperm directly from the bank, giving you the lowest possible prices and the most amount of control over the selection process.

Donor sperm can be used in fertility treatments in order to achieve pregnancy. It is used for single people, same sex female couples and for those couples where male factor infertility is preventing them from becoming pregnant.

Donor Sperm FAQs

Are sperm donors anonymous?

As of May 2020 all sperm donors must be ‘identifiable’. This means that you do not have any information about them and vice versa. However, they have consented to their data being stored on a national registry and any children conceived through their donation will have access to their details once they reach adulthood.

Will there be a high number of children born through my donor?

Our collaboration with ESB provides patients with ‘pregnancy slots’. This gives you the certainty that no more than 3 families will be created in Ireland with any one donor through European Sperm Bank.

Will I still feel connected to my child if I’m not genetically related?

Absolutely yes! Most patients say that the moment they see their donor conceived child, they never even think about the genetics again. They are immediately in love with them and they realise that being a parent is about so much more than just genetics. However all of our patients have access to counselling and this is a topic which you can explore with a therapist.
