The NHS allows three main routes for finding a sperm donor in the United Kingdom:
- Anonymous sperm donors by visiting a fertility clinics.
- Known sperm donors, say a friend or someone you've met online. Fresh sperm donors are allowed, too.
- Going abroad for IVF or IUI with donor sperm.
If you choose the first option, there exist numerous HFEA-licensed clinics and sperm banks across the country. They all have to follow strict criteria in order for qualifying a candidate as eligible.
