I’ve been trying to think of an angle to discuss this topic for a few days now, it’s not something I’ve ever thought about in a serious sense, until now.
I have been speaking with CARE Fertility who asked if I could help them in their quest to reach more men that might be interested in donating their sperm.
I’ll be honest, my initial reaction was ‘indifferent’ for want of a better word. I imagine you men reading this are probably the same, most of you won’t have thought about this from a serious stand point before.
Then I clicked on the CARE Fertility website and read a little more about it. I mean I get the main points, some people need donated sperm to start a family. Having had a child relatively easily myself I’ve always been ignorant to the actual process those not so lucky have to go through.
The cogs in my brain have certainly been turning and I wanted to discuss this very niche topic here where I know many other men will be reading and if I could even get you to spend a few minutes questioning your position on this, then I’ll have achieved my goal.
So I’ve been thinking, would I ever donate? Could I? In the sense of both could I go through with the process and would my own sperm actually be accepted. There are obviously health checks etc that you would need to pass.
As I was thinking my mind wondered over to the people that I know in real life that have had difficulties in conceiving and starting a family. I thought about how many of us take for granted how lucky we are that we got on with ‘the deed’ and 9 months later the most magical thing that can happen to a person happened, we became parents. I thought about how devastated I would be if I was told that I could no longer naturally create a life, I’m not sure I’ve decided 100% that I’m done yet but it may not even be a choice anymore, just as for many it’s not a choice without sourcing help from fertility specialists.
We have friends that have had torrid experiences trying to do what every person on the planet should be given the option to do, create their own family.
Imagine having the capacity to help other people have a family, as many of us will have. We’ve all seen the superhero movies, ‘With great power comes great responsibility’, what better super power is there than the ability to create a life?
From not having thought too much about this topic, it’s quickly become apparent to me how life changing sperm donations can be, I mean literally you can change several lives with one donation.
I’d really love your feedback on this in the comments and if you are interested in looking into this further please take a look HERE for more information on how you can donate and change lives.
