Patients wishing to use donor sperm
There are a number of reasons why you might wish to use donor sperm:
- the male partner may not have any sperm of his own
- you might be in a same sex relationship
- or you might be a single woman wishing to have a baby
The fertility clinic at The James Cook University Hospital in Middlesbrough is one of the few clinics in the country possessing its own sperm donor bank. This donor sperm is available to be used for either intra-uterine insemination (IUI) or for in vitro fertilisation (IVF) with intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI).
For further information about the use of donor sperm for your own treatment, please read our patient information document on donor insemination.
