European Sperm Bank helps women and couples to conceive using donor sperm.

We export to more than 80 countries, and over the years we have assisted in creating more than 35,000 children across the world.

Established in Copenhagen in 2004, European Sperm Bank is now one of the leading players in our industry. The UK is our second largest market and we are aware that many UK women would prefer to use local donors, which led to us opening our new clinic in London in 2018.

European Sperm Bank prioritise high-quality sperm, industry-leading donor testing, and dedicated advice above all, to ensure the best possible experience when making the decision to be a donor or to have a donor child.

We are highly aware that the actions of a sperm bank have lifelong implications for both the donors, the children and the parents, and one of our core values is “Thinking of the future”. This is reflected in everything we do. At the same time, we are a warm and fun-loving group of team-players, who enjoy working together.
