The NHS allows three main routes for finding a sperm donor in the United Kingdom:

  1. Anonymous sperm donors by visiting a fertility clinics.
  2. Known sperm donors, say a friend or someone you’ve met online. Fresh sperm donors are allowed, too.
  3. 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.
