Donor sperm treatments available now at Manchester Fertility

Here are some of the treatments we offer using donor sperm:

  • Donor sperm insemination is usually performed without the use of fertility medication. A typical cycle of treatment takes just four weeks. It involves placing donor sperm into your uterus around the same time that you naturally ovulate. You can take a pregnancy test two weeks later.
  • IVF with donor sperm may be advised if IUI isn’t suitable, because of issues such as blocked fallopian tubes. IVF with donor sperm involves stimulating your ovaries to produce mature eggs, which are then then fertilised with sperm from your chosen donor. The best resulting embryo will be selected for transfer, with any good quality remaining embryos stored for future use.

Throughout your treatment journey you will be supported by our team, which provides dedicated, personal support and guidance to patients who are using a donor to have a baby.

Donor sperm treatment packages

It’s always advisable to have donor sperm treatment through a licensed clinic, to maximise your chance of pregnancy and to minimise any risks to you and your baby from using unregulated sperm donor sources and attempting insemination yourself at home. To help make safe, clinic treatment accessible and affordable, we offer a range of donor sperm treatment packages.

Our most popular option for people who need donor sperm is our discounted 3-cycle IUI with donor sperm package. It gives you:

  • Up to three cycles of donor sperm insemination
  • Your choice of sperm donor from our UK donor bank
  • Significant cost savings compared to the cost of three separate cycles
  • Reassurance that you have more than one attempt at pregnancy
  • Option for female couples to transfer any remaining cycles to your partner
  • Optional sperm donor family slot reservation – reserve sperm for sibling treatment if your treatment is successful

We also offer IVF packages for donor sperm. Explore all our treatment packages or try our Cost Calculator for an indicative price.
