Sperm collection is generally a less invasive and time-consuming donation process compared with egg donation. In the UK, the cost of donor sperm is between £800 and
£1,500 depending on the clinic or sperm bank you are using. If you are buying from a sperm bank and the sperm needs to be shipped to your treatment clinic, there will be a fee for transport and fees from the clinic for handling the sperm.
The costs of using donor eggs are between £3,000 to £5,000 for up to 8 eggs.
If you are going through IVF using either donor sperm or donor eggs, we suggest that you speak with your treatment clinic first to check which sperm banks or egg banks they work with.
