Couples Get Free IVF if They Persuade Friend to Donate Sperm

March 7, 2016

(The Telegraph) – Couples will be offered free IVF treatment if they can persuade a friend to donate sperm, under a new scheme designed to encourage more men to become sperm donors following a national shortage. Fertility regulator rules mean clinics are not allowed to pay sperm donors, and men currently receive just £35 towards expenses.
