Choosing the best option for you
Using sperm from the European Sperm Bank
We have a partnership with the European Sperm Bank, an established sperm bank in Denmark, accredited to EU standards. Donors must be chosen from this source.
The European Sperm Bank is synonymous with high-quality sperm. Sperm donors undergo a thorough screening process by their Medical Team, who are clinical geneticists. To date, the European Sperm Bank have helped thousands of families to grow.
You will have access to a wide selection of donors to choose from. The sperm will be exported to Ireland for your treatment at Beacon CARE Fertility. Our Lab Team is always on hand to assist you before making your choice.
Known sperm donation
If you have a relative or friend who you wish to be your sperm donor, then we can assist you in using the sperm from your chosen donor when you have treatment at one of our partner CARE Fertility UK Clinics.
