No thank you to untrustworthy sperm donors
Months went by, and the couple had finally made contact with a man who seemed honest and sympathetic. In the meantime, Hayley had become pregnant with sperm from European Sperm Bank in May 2020. The idea was quite simply that she would write to the person and thank him for his time, letting him know that it was no longer relevant. His reaction? The total opposite of being congratulated:
“You ungrateful bitch!”
The tone left the pair in a state of shock.
I immediately blocked him, and yet he made a new profile and contacted me. Imagine if we had chosen him as our sperm donor! We cannot emphasise enough how important it is to use a professional sperm bank. That way, you know that everything will be done properly and that the quality will be top-notch.”
To this day, Hayley is still surprised that she did not think about the potential health consequences of using untested sperm from the grey market. Both for herself and her baby.
The dream of becoming a mother was too great. She simply wasn’t thinking clearly.
