UK Armed Forces Spermbanks list

To help Service Personnel who wish to store sperm before they deploy, the British Andrology Society have assembled a list of clinics offering this service with details of their fees. The Society has no financial interests within any clinic and is not recommending any particular service.

The Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority regulates all fertility centres in the UK, the services HFEA licence for sperm storage were approached and offered the opportunity to be on this list.

The Centres will be able to provide you with more information if you are considering banking your sperm. 

Things You Need to Consider

In banking your sperm you will find out more about your potential fertility. One in ten men have a fertility problem and one in fifty men ejaculate no sperm at all. You may find that you have a problem like this and should consider whether you want to know or now is a time you
wish to find out.

When you attend the Clinic you will also have to fill out a consent form, on this you can decide to let a named partner/wife have treatment with your sperm even in the event of your death, this is quite standard to clinics as they often bank sperm for cancer patients. Alternatively you can decide that if anything happens to you the sperm should be disposed of, this is also the situation if you do not name a partner.

The Clinic you decide to attend will be able to provide you with more information. Most Clinics will be able to offer you an appointment within a fortnight of you contacting them.

More information about regulation of clinics and sperm storage is available on the HFEA website: www.hfea.gov.uk
