UK Fertility Lacks Diversity

A report into the growth of egg and sperm donation in the UK has found a lack of ethnic diversity among donors. Asian egg and black sperm donors were under-represented by 50% compared with the population, the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA) found.

The number of babies born from donor eggs, sperm or embryos rose from 2,500 in 1993 to 4,100 in 2019. Annual donor registrations also rose, from under 1,000 to over 2,300 – but so did the proportion of imported sperm.
