If you use an un authorised clinic to donate sperm, you are the legal father of a child born from your donation under UK law. These rules apply whether the woman uses anonymous sperm from a donation through the clinic or brings her own donor. Once the age of 16 is reached, a child can request non-identifiable information about the donor and all genetic siblings conceived by the donor. From the age of 18, they can request identifying information about the donor and all genetic siblings conceived by the donor (by mutual agreement). Hello. My husband and I are not able to get pregnant naturally. We don`t want to go the IVF route. However, a very close friend offered to provide us with his sperm. Do the rules change when the meeting is sexual intercourse or have? Is it possible that my husband and our donor are listed on the birth certificate? If so, what are the legal implications? Thank you Sam If you donate sperm to a clinic licensed by the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA), you won`t: our team of sperm donors has experience working with donors and couples who carry the child. A private insemination agreement or sperm donation agreement is a private agreement between a single mother or couple and a donor. Many women ask a close male friend or people who don`t have blood to donate at home. You won`t have the benefit of screening that a clinic would do, so trust must exist between you.
Ask your donor to present their medical history and get tested for sexually transmitted diseases. The legislation currently provides that, for all sperm donations made after 1 April 2005, all children aged 16 and 18 who are conceived may request personal information about the sperm donor. The authors find that this is „feasible and morally permissible“ because it can contribute to the provision of „sufficient amounts of sperm“ for people wishing to become parents through sperm donation. From the age of 18, a conceived child may request the donor`s full name and last address of residence. . . .
