It is highly recommended that your sperm donor or co-parent undertakes infection testing to prevent infection in the recipient and the unborn child.
The following sexually transmitted infections (STI's) can be screened from a simple blood sample, some tests may require a swab from the genital area. Tests can be completed free of charge at your local GP, alternatively tests may be undertaken at a Genito-urinary medicine clinic (GUM clinic), normally based within your local hospital. GUM clinics allow donors the ability to have tests done, without having to give their name, instead they use a number and date of birth for identification.
