The HFEA –– who we are and what we doThe Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA) was set up in 1991 tolicence and regulate clinics which provide:in vitro fertilisation (IVF) treatmentdonor insemination (DI) treatmentgamete intra fallopian transfer (GIFT) where donated sperm or eggsare used in treatmentstorage of gametes or embryos.The HFEA also licenses clinics that carry out research involving human embryos.These activities can only be carried out if the clinic obtains a licence from theHFEA. As well as licensing research and treatment clinics, the HFEA also:publishes a Code of Practice giving guidance to clinics on how they shouldcarry out licensed activities;keeps a confidential register of information about donors, patients andtreatments;gives advice and information to licensed clinics;gives information and advice to people seeking fertility treatment, to donorsand the general public.The HFEA exists to safeguard, protect and reassure patients, professionals and thepublic about licensed infertility treatments and human embryo research.The HFEA inspects all licensed treatment centres annually, requiring and helping allcentres to achieve, and adhere to, the high standards in our Code of Practice. TheHFEA remains one of the few national statutory bodies of its kind in the world.ABCThe Human Fertilisation and Embryology AuthorityPaxton House, 30 Artillery Lane, London E1 7LSTel: 020 7377 5077 Fax: 020 7377 1871website at http://www.hfea.gov.uk

2The Patients’ Guide to DIIntroductionIf you are unsure whether you need treatment for infertility,or what treatment you might need, you should firstread the HFEA’s booklet, 'The Patients’ Guide toInfertility and IVF'.The purpose of this booklet is to give advice and informationto people considering treatment with spermfrom a donor. It may also be of interest to men whomay wish to consider becoming donors.Donor insemination treatment (DI) involves the use ofsperm from an anonymous donor. It can be used if themale partner has no sperm or very poor sperm or riskspassing on an inherited disease. DI may also be usedto treat single women or lesbian couples.The law requires that everyone has to undergo anassessment at the clinic before treatment is offered (see'welfare of the child', page 3).PLEASE NOTEWe are writing this booklet as if for a couple. Weappreciate that not all patients are in a relationship.The information contained in this booklet is relevant toall those seeking treatment.What is involved?Donor insemination involves the use of sperm from adonor. It is straightforward and usually painless. Usinga fine tube, the doctor or nurse places the semen intothe neck of the womb or the uterus. The patient will beasked to rest for a short time after this treatment.Sexual intercourse can usually continue as normal duringa treatment cycle.About the donorsSperm donors are men aged between 18 and 55 witha relatively high sperm count who have undergonehealth screening, such as for hepatitis and sexuallytransmitted diseases including HIV. Screening for HIVinvolves sperm being frozen and quarantined for atleast six months. Donors can be paid up to £15 plusexpenses per donation. The law states that their donationswill remain anonymous. (Occasionally a clinic willtreat a patient with sperm from a donor who is alreadyknown to them. See 'welfare of the child', page 3).Clinics do their best to use sperm from a donor whohas similar physical characteristics as the male partner,e.g. skin colour, eye colour, blood group, hair colourand body build. However, this requires a large andconstant source of donors and it may be difficult to providea match. The result of any attempt at matchingphysical characteristics cannot be guaranteed. Clinicsshould discuss any deviations from a 'good' match withtheir patients.Chances of successYour chances of success decrease with age. At presentwomen under 30 achieve a live birth rate of 10-12%per treatment cycle, but this begins to decrease afterthat age. Women aged 35-39 have a 9% chance of alive birth, and women over 40 have only a 3-4%chance of successful pregnancy for each DI cycle.However, these are only averages. Your individual circumstanceswill influence the likelihood of success inyour own particular case.FIG.1 DI live birth rate by age of womanDonor insemination is performed during the fertile periodeach month. This is likely to be about the middle ofthe woman’s menstrual cycle. Whilst the woman mayobserve a change in vaginal mucus during this fertileperiod, blood or urine hormone tests or ultrasoundscans are usually used to establish accurately the mostsuitable time for insemination. Sometimes hormonedrugs are used to stimulate the ovaries.All pregnancies carry some risks, and donor inseminationdoes not protect patients from these.Live Birth Rate (percent)14121086420under 25 25-29 30-34 35-39 40-44 45 & overAge


The Patients’ Guide to DI3'Welfare of the child'The Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act 1990states that, before offering anyone treatment a clinicmust: 'take account of the welfare of any child whomay be born as a result of the treatment(including the need of that child for a father),and of any other child who may be affectedby the birth'.This means that the clinic will ask you a number of personalquestions. Your ages and the medical histories ofyou and your families will be considered. So too willthe needs of any child or children who may be born,and your ability to meet those needs.Clinics should also consider any risk of harm from neglector abuse to any child who may be born . They willalso take account the effect of a new baby upon anyexisting child of the family. Clinics must seek to satisfythemselves that the GP of each prospective parentknows of no reason why either of them should not beoffered treatment. Before seeking such reassurancefrom your GP the clinic must obtain your consent.Failure to give consent will be taken into account by theclinic in considering whether or not to offer treatment.These include:implications counselling: to enable the peopleconcerned to understand the implications of theproposed course of action for themselves, for theirfamily and for any children born as a result. Thismay be particularly relevant for people consideringtreatment with donated sperm, eggs or embryos.This may also include genetic counselling;support counselling: to give emotional support attimes of particular stress, e.g. when there is afailure to achieve a pregnancy;therapeutic counselling: which aims to help peopleto cope with the consequences of infertility andtreatment and resolve the problems these maycause. It includes helping people to adjust theirexpectations and to come to terms with theirsituation.While all licensed clinics must offer counselling, theemphasis placed on it can vary. Some clinics insist oncounselling before offering certain treatments. It mayalso be useful for you to contact one of the nationalsupport groups who may be able to put you in touchwith others who have had DI treatment (see pages 9-10).Some clinics, as a matter of policy, do not offer treatmentto single women or to unmarried couples. Mostclinics have upper age limits for women they are preparedto treat, although the HFEA has not itself set anational age limit.In considering you for treatment, clinics will take allthese factors into account as well as the possible effectsof the treatment on your own welfare.CounsellingBefore starting treatment clinics must offer you theopportunity to receive counselling. Counselling providesan opportunity to discuss with an impartial person anyconcerns you may have about your treatment, its implicationsfor you or infertility generally. However, you donot have to accept offers of counselling if you do notfeel it would be helpful.The HFEA Code of Practice sets out the types of counsellingthat should be available through all licensedclinics.


4Issues to ConsiderConfidentialityDonor insemination notes are kept securely and separatelyfrom general hospital records in such a way thatconfidentiality is preserved. The identity of the donor isstrictly confidential, but you may obtain some non-identifyinginformation about him. Similarly, your name willnot be known to the donor.Clinics are required to collect and pass on informationabout donors, recipients and treatment cycles to theHFEA for its confidential Register. The purpose of theRegister is to enable people over the age of 18 (or 16if contemplating marriage) to find out whether theywere born as a result of licensed fertility treatment (i.e.donor insemination, in vitro fertilisation) and, if so,whether they are related to someone they intend tomarry.a) Legal aspectsAny child born to a married woman following donorinsemination is legally the child of her husband, unlesshe did not consent to his wife's treatment. For unmarriedcouples, any child born to a woman followingdonor insemination is legally the child of her male partnertreated together with her. Clinics should alsoexplain that, when a child is born to an unmarried couple,the male partner may not have parental responsibilityfor that child under the Children Act 1989.Unmarried couples are recommended to seek their ownlegal advice about the male partner’s rights andresponsibilities towards any child who may be born asa result of treatment. The donor is not the child's legalfather and has no legal responsibilities for the child.b) Looking towards the futureBefore undergoing donor insemination treatment youmay wish to think carefully about the various aspects ofhaving a child through this treatment. You might considersuch matters as whether, and how, you will wishto tell your potential child about his or her origin bydonor insemination. He or she will have the legal rightat the age of 18, upon application to the HFEA andafter the opportunity for appropriate counselling, tofind out about his or her origin by donor insemination.Non-identifying information about the donor may bemade available to the child. There maybe provision in the future for children born of suchtreatments to obtain further information about donors.From 2008 onwards, anyone over the age of 16 whobelieves they have been conceived with donor spermon or after 1 August 1991 and is thinking of gettingmarried will be able to obtain information if they wishto check whether they might be related to their intendedpartner.You may wish to speak to a counsellor about the implicationsof having a child through donor insemination(see 'Counselling' on page 3), and you also may wishto contact a patient support group (see pages 9-10).Multiple birthsThere is a greater risk of multiple pregnancy and births(usually twins or triplets) if drugs are used to stimulateovulation before insemination. The risk of multiple birthis not as great with DI as with other treatments such asIVF, although about one in 15 DI births will be eithertwins or triplets.While the prospect of twins or triplets may seem attractive,there are many serious risks associated with multiplebirths. Research has shown that multiple births canlead to a much higher risk of:complications during pregnancy;premature birth and low weight birth;disability;death of infants at, or within, 28 days of birth(known as neonatal death).In addition to the serious risks to the babies' health, amultiple birth can create enormous strains for the parents,including financial difficulties and emotional andphysical exhaustion. In some cases the joys of parenthoodare greatly reduced by these problems.Risks of DIWhen hormone drugs are used to stimulate the ovariessome women experience mild unpleasant symptoms asa reaction to the drugs, but these are normally shortlivedand are no cause for concern. They may includehot flushes, feelings of depression and irritability,headaches and restlessness at night.


Issues to Consider5Despite careful monitoring, a small number of womenmay develop ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome(OHSS). The majority of these women have a mild ormoderate form of over-response to the drugs, and complainof pain and mild abdominal swelling. In somecases cysts may appear on the ovaries and fluid maycollect in the abdominal cavity causing discomfort. Thecondition should be monitored by a fertility specialist,and in some cases the cycle may have to be abandoned.In about 1% of cases severe ovarian hyperstimulationcauses a very large number of eggs to develop and theovaries to swell. Symptoms such as nausea and vomiting,abdominal pain and swelling and shortness ofbreath may occur. A woman may also feel weak andfaint and notice a reduction in urine output. These complicationsrequire urgent hospital admission to restorethe fluid balance and monitor progress.Patients should:ask for information about how the clinic tries toavoid OHSS;be made aware of the symptoms to look out for.If you are at all worried during your treatment, youshould always contact the clinic. Their phone numbers(including an emergency phone number) should beeasily found in their information leaflets.


6Summary of Questions to Ask ClinicsThe following list summarises certain questions you maywish to ask clinics before deciding which to attend.Does the clinic have a patient support group?How might I tell my child about their origins?What tests will be carried out by the clinic?Is it possible to see a female (or male) doctor?Does the clinic recommend the use of drugs with DI? If so, why?Will we be seen by the same doctor throughout?Are there any restrictions to treatment at the clinic?Is there a waiting list for treatment?How many visits to the clinic will be needed?Is the treatment available on the NHS?If not, what is the cost of treatment? What does this cover?Are any of the clinic’s facilities shared with other units, such asthe maternity unit?How long has the clinic been established?How does the clinic involve the male partner in the treatment?What other treatments do you offer?What kind of monitoring is carried out? Why is this thepreferred method?How many inseminations are done in each cycle?Does the clinic use vaginal, cervical or uterine insemination?Why is this the preferred method?What is the clinic’s policy on screening sperm donors? Does theclinic offer genetic screening for cystic fibrosis and other genetically transmitted diseases and conditions?Does the clinic have a wide selection of donor sperm to choose from?How are sperm donors recruited?How many cycles does the clinic recommend before consideringother treatment options?What information does the clinic provide?What counselling is available?What are the chances of multiple birth?What will happen if the treatment is successful?What will happen if the treatment is not successful?


Common Questions and Answers71. Should I treat the list of clinics as aleague table and go to the one withthe highest live birth rate?No. Many other factors can be equally as important.These can include the location of the clinic, costs, waitingtimes, experience of special techniques and its policyon multiple births. Patients must feel comfortable andconfident with their choice, and they should use ourGuide as a starting point rather than as a source ofcomprehensive information.2. What information is the clinicobliged to provide for its patients?All UK licensed clinics must supply written informationto prospective patients before offering treatment. Thisinformation should give details about the servicesoffered, any risks involved, costs, previous live birthrates and complaints procedure. This literature shouldbe comprehensive and easy to understand, althoughstaff at the clinic will explain any points which areunclear. The HFEA Code of Practice gives details.3. What ‘consents’ will I be askedto give?Before beginning treatment the clinic must obtain yourwritten ‘informed’ consent. This means that you havebeen given information about the procedures, had theopportunity to discuss the treatment with the clinic’sstaff, had the opportunity to receive counselling andhad time to think about your decision. You may chooseto change or withdraw your consent at any time beforeyour sperm, eggs or embryos are used in treatment.You will be offered counselling before proceeding withthe treatment. This provides an opportunity to discusswith an impartial person any concerns you may haveabout your treatment, its implications for you or infertilitygenerally. Some people find counselling particularlyhelpful when they are considering whether to receivetreatment with donated sperm or eggs. However, youdo not have to accept offers of counselling if you donot feel that it would be helpful for you.4. Will my treatment remainconfidential?Yes. In addition to a doctor’s responsibility to keep yourmedical records confidential, the Human Fertilisationand Embryology Act 1990 imposes particular duties inrespect of IVF and DI patients and donors. The clinicmay not disclose information about your treatment toanybody (apart from clinic staff), even your GP, withoutfirst obtaining your written consent. To do so, otherthan in very exceptional circumstances, is a criminaloffence.Where donated sperm has been used, the identity ofthe donor is kept strictly confidential, so you cannotlearn his identity, but you may obtain some non-identifyinginformation about him. Similarly, your name willnot be known to the donor. However, clinics arerequired to collect and pass on information about thedonors, recipients and treatment cycles to the HFEA forits confidential Register. The purpose of the Register isto enable people over the age of 18 (or 16 if contemplatingmarriage) to find out whether they were born asa result of licensed fertility treatment, and, if so,whether they are related to someone they intend tomarry. There may be provisions in the future for childrenborn of such treatments to obtain further informationabout donors.5. How can I complain?The HFEA requires every licensed clinic to have its owncomplaints procedure, and the handling of these complaintsis monitored as part of the HFEA’s inspectionprocedure. If a patient, donor or anyone else feels thata clinic has not dealt with their complaint adequately,they should write to the HFEA.6. What will happen if the treatmentis successful?The extent to which clinics remain involved after treatmentvaries. Some clinics may carry out a pregnancytest and some provide ante-natal care. Others dischargepatients to the care of their own GP or consultant.These differences may be important to you. Youshould consider discussing them with the clinic.The clinic needs to know the outcome of your treatmentand will be able to offer advice and support.


8Common Questions and Answers7. What will happen if the treatment isnot successful?If the treatment does not lead to a pregnancy then theremay be several options. In any event, the clinic shouldoffer you advice and counselling. You may decide totry again, try a different type of treatment or withdrawfrom further treatment.You might ask the clinic how many cycles of treatmentare given before further investigations are undertakenor other forms of treatment considered.The staff at the clinic, the independent counsellor andyour GP or consultant, (if they have been informed ofthe treatment), should be able to offer advice and support.
