COVID-19

We're open

There's a lot of concern about the coronavirus at the moment. For those of you hoping to start treatment soon, this time can be particularly stressful.

We'd like to make it clear that we are still in full operation. You can place your orders and we will be shipping as usual.

We understand some of you might be hesitant due to the current turmoil, so we're offering free storage at our premises for 6 months. Please get in touch if you would like to know more about this.

Like everyone else, we’re taking the situation very seriously. We have implemented all guidelines from public health authorities at our locations and continue to monitor the situation closely.

Our way of helping

To accommodate any challenges caused by the coronavirus, we have a special offer:

6 months of free storage

By putting your straws into storage, you're certain that straws from your favourite donor are still available when you need them. 

If you'd like to make use of this option, simply select six months storage in the check-out flow here on our website.

There is no evidence that supports that coronavirus spreads via sperm. In general, research shows that respiratory viruses do not spread via sperm and so far, no cases of transmission of coronavirus have been reported. European Sperm Bank follows closely and act in accordance to the recommendations for donor screening issued by the local authorities. 

There is no evidence that supports that COVID-19 infection increases the risk of miscarriages or fetal malformations, but as with any other virus if you are or become pregnant you should be more careful and take your precautions to reduce the risk of getting the infection.

Yes, most of our staff can work from home while providing the relevant service to our customers. Our staff is asked to stay home, if they or someone close to them display symptoms of COVID-19 or if they have visited high-risk areas. We also ask donors a range of screening questions to minimise the risk of them having been infected. Other precautionary measures include frequent wiping of surfaces and posters with clear instructions on the front door of all our locations.

To accommodate any challenges caused by the coronavirus we right now have an option where we offer six months of free storage. If you already have storage at our premises, we can help you prolong it. 

We’re in constant dialogue with our logistic partners and at this point there are no indication that shipments to other countries will be any problem. Any changes will be updated on our website. 

At this point, there is no evidence that supports that coronavirus infection spreads via sperm or that that a COVID-19 infection in a pregnant woman increases the risk for miscarriages or fetal malformations. The sperm straws that we send out today were donated months before the novel coronavirus was detected due to our routine quarantine procedures. The sperm that is donated after the coronavirus outbreak will be frozen and quarantined and released in accordance with the guidelines from the Health Authorities.
