I've got cerebral palsy. Would that stop me from freezing my sperm or donating?

Having cerebral palsy would not prevent you from freezing sperm for your own use. However, if you wish to apply to be a sperm donor your case will be assessed by one of our Doctors at Manchester Fertility.  They will take into account your age, health and medical history before accepting you.  You can apply using our online application form by going to the website www.manchesterdonors.com.
