This is serious, men The UK needs you. The British Fertility Society (BFS) is warning of a major shortage of sperm.
According to reports, one in four samples are imported from outside the UK to keep up with the huge demand. Experts are worried clinics might soon start accepting poor-quality sperm due to lack of supply.
This development could also impact negatively on women as it would mean more expensive techniques for women such as sperm being accepted that would be suitable only for injecting into an egg rather than for artificial insemination.
It’s been observed that there has been fewer sperm donors after the right to anonymity was removed in 2005.
