“I wanted to give back after our own infertility experiences.”
I became a sperm donor in my late thirties. My partner and I had had several rounds of fertility treatment for female issues. We were fortunate enough to conceive our son on cycle number 5. Having treatment was a very difficult and strenuous time for us both. We were very low and our lives were thrown into limbo as we waited and wondered whether we were ever going to become parents. During all that turmoil, I made a vow to myself that if we did ever strike it lucky then I wanted to do something to help other people who wanted children. And so began my journey to becoming a donor.
