Sperm Donation Questions

Upper age limit



I am 47 years old and have not yet started the menopause but I am interested in looking at sperm donation. I’ve looked at your packages which have an upper age of 44 for sperm donation and wondered if this would be extended to slight older ladies? Or would the treatment available to my age group be that of egg and sperm donations.?

If you need a more detailed response, tailored to you, we would recommend a consultation with one of our Fertility Specialists for more comprehensive medical advice.

The reason we do not offer treatment women with their own eggs over the age of 44 is that we do not have any live births in this age group for IUI or IVF.

The most effective treatment is to use donor eggs.

IUI package

Hi there, i am a 23 year old female soon to be 24, who has been trying to get pregant via a sperm donor for 1 year now. However i am looking into your iui package. For this can a credit card be used? or does it have to be paid in full via debit card?. Only because i dont have £3,000 saved as yet. I have a good job as a pre school teacher so will be able to afford it and pay off the credit card bill :). Many thanks.

Sperm storage

Hi
My wife and I have a son through a known donor. We did the insemination at home last time with fresh sperm. Our donor has now moved to Sweden so we are considering our options in terms of sperm storage so we can try for another child. Is that something that you do?
Kind regards,
Kate

Sperm freezing is the most successful method of preserving a man’s fertility so he can try and have children at a later date. It's also used to store sperm so it can be used in someone else's treatment. We do provide some sperm freezing options for patients, but much depends on what your exact requirements are. If you would like to dicuss this more, please telephone our Cryobank on 0161 300 2730 (ext. 225).

I would advise you to opt for IVF as the success rates are much higher than with IUI.

A low AMH is an indication that you have a lower number of eggs for your age range.  However, this is not related to the quality of your eggs so you have a good chance of conceiving especially if you are having natural cycle IUI with donor sperm.
