How it works

1Application

Start by filling in our online application form. Choose a date and time for your first visit. Your sperm sample will be analysed, and if successfully approved, we will invite you to the next step.

2Interview

You will meet with our donor coordinator to discuss your family history, to rule out any serious hereditary disorders. You will also be provided with further information about what it means to be a sperm donor.

3Health Check & Counselling

You will have a health check and physical examination with one of our doctors. You will be offered a counselling session with our counsellor. A blood and urine sample will then be taken and the results analysed by our geneticist.

4Profile review & donor approval

The last step is a profile review. We will finalise your profile and record an audio interview. Following successful completion of this stage, you will be approved as a qualified donor.

How it works

First visit to European sperm bank

On your first visit to the sperm bank, simply turn up at the clinic and identify yourself at the reception (please bring ID). We will ask you how many hours it has been since your last ejaculation. It must be between 48 and 72 hours.

You will then receive a cup and be shown to a room, where you will deposit your sample. When finished, just leave your sample at the reception desk.

Within a week, you will receive an email telling you if your sperm count is good enough to become a donor. If so, you can continue with the donation process

According to UK-law, you cannot donate sperm anonymously. However, only children conceived as a result of your sperm will be allowed to contact you when they reach the legal age of 18. European Sperm Bank will also know your identity.

You can donate at our Holborn clinic, a 5-minute walk from Chancery Lane underground station.

We ask you to donate at least four times per month.

A donor can be compensated up to £35 for each approved donation, as regulated by the HFEA: You will receive £20 right away and £15 after the donation has been screened for STDs and approved. Read more about being a sperm donor.
