Have you donated sperm or eggs?

    Have you donated sperm or eggs?
    Are you the partner or parent of a donor? If so we would love to hear your story.

    We are University of Manchester researchers working on a project about how donating egg or sperm impacts upon the everyday lives and relationships of donors and their families. Very little is known about the experiences of donors and families who have donated in recent years, since the move toward more open practices in donation conception. Even less research has been conducted with the families of donors.

    We would therefore like to talk to people who have donated in the UK since April 2005, and the partners or parents of such donors. We are interested in all kinds of donation situations, including where people donate in or out of clinics, to anonymous and known recipients or where the donation was part of an egg-sharing arrangement.

    More information can be found on our website:

    Thank you for your interest in the project!

    Become parents thanks to sperm donation or co-parenting

    Families come in a multitude of forms: same-sex parented families, blended families, single-parents raising their children alone or co-parents sharing custody of their children. These are just a few examples of the many and varied possibilities. Whether you are single, in a same-sex relationship or part of a couple experiencing infertility, you too can become parents. Your first step will be to find alternative solutions to enable you to have a baby.
