So you’ve found your ideal Semovo sperm donor – what happens now? When you order donor sperm from the Semovo sperm bank, we’ll send your sperm straight to your fertility clinic.

We’ll make sure it arrives at exactly the right time in your treatment cycle, so there’s no delay in your journey to a baby.

Donor sperm: Different ways to conceive

Once your Semovo donor sperm arrives, it will be thawed and carefully checked by your clinic’s laboratory team before being prepared for your use. Semovo donor sperm is proven to be able to withstand the freezing and thawing process and still maintain fertility. It can be used across all the different types of fertility treatments, including:

  • IVF: Your eggs will be retrieved and mixed with your chosen donor sperm in the clinic laboratory. Eggs will be monitored for signs of fertilisation, with the best resulting embryo transferred into your uterus to implant for pregnancy.
  • Intrauterine Insemination (IUI): Your chosen donor sperm will be inserted into your uterus at the exact time you’re ovulating, in the hope the sperm fertilises the egg and you become pregnant.

Pregnancy success rates using donor sperm

Whether you conceive using a sperm donor depends on a number of factors, including your age, the quality of your eggs, the quality of resulting embryos for transfer and the type of fertility treatment you’re having.

We maximise your chances of pregnancy by only accepting men as Semovo sperm donors if they have the highest quality sperm possible, that’s capable of fertilising eggs through all the different fertility treatments available.

Family slot: No reservation fees

If you become pregnant, congratulations! You may not be planning more children just yet but at Semovo we give you the option to use the same sperm donor again in future. Upon confirmation of your pregnancy, we can reserve vials of donor sperm from the donor you’ve conceived with, at no additional cost for a family-slot reservation of sperm.
