Service based at Birmingham Women's Hospital says it recruited just seven new donors since opening two years ago. The Birmingham-based UK national sperm bank has stopped recruiting donors just two years after it first opened. At the time, Dr Sue Avery, the director of the Birmingham Women's Fertility Centre, said: "The idea of the campaign is to focus on sperm donation as a tremendously positive thing to do and that the men who do this are very special. We're spending this money to start something that we hope will grow to the point where nobody has to import sperm. But now, just two years on, the NSB has stopped its recruitment as it is unable to stay financially self-sufficient.

Whether you are a single woman, in a same-sex relationship or a couple experiencing fertility issues, one option when it comes to building your family is to look for a sperm donor. Fortunately, these days there are several ways to obtain donor sperm. This allows you to select the most suitable option for you. You can get vials from UK-based or international sperm banks or fertility clinics. You can also find your donor online, whether on social media or on specialised platforms dedicated to sperm donation where you can contact the donors that best suit you directly. In the UK, you can obtain sperm from either British or international sperm banks. Additionally, although most licensed fertility clinics buy vials of sperm from sperm banks, a few of them have their own stock and recruit the donors themselves.

Why choose Birmingham for a sperm bank?

To become a donor you need to be aged between , generally fit and healthy. You will need to be willing to attend the clinic for initial tests and then regularly to make donations and finally attending the last screening appointment six months after your last donation. We start with a brief telephone questionnaire, asking a few individual questions and also offer you a screening appointment. We will also ask for your consent to contact your GP to check your medical history. The next appointment will be with our counsellor, who will be able to discuss the implications or any private and confidential questions you may have about the process.
