We provide IUI treatment here at BFA using partner or donor sperm, with an exclusive list of donors available for treatment at BFA only.
If you are seeking donor sperm samples to use at another clinic we ship to other licensed fertility clinics across the UK.
The best start for you
We are a licensed sperm bank so you can be assured that sample safety and traceability is our priority from the moment of freezing, to delivery to your clinic and managing the 10 family rule. We send you a list of donors and YOU chose the donor that is right for you.
When using a BFA donor you can be assured that you are allocated to 1 of a maximum of 10 families worldwide. We do not import donor samples or send samples to other countries so you don’t need to worry.
Who are our donors?
- 21-45 year olds
- Healthy and screened regularly
- Best quality sperm
We don’t have our donor list on the website as it’s forever changing! So please contact us and we can get the process started together.
The best start for your child
At BFA, we believe the quality of information we collect about a donor is essential for both parents and their children. Research has shown that donor children are much happier to know that information is there that if it is not. We pride ourselves in asking our donors a variety of questions so you and your child can paint your own picture of him.
