trying for a baby for a year, Janine and James from Southampton decided to
visit their doctor to discuss their fertility. They both had fertility tests and whilst Janine’s results showed

Janine and James were referred to Complete Fertility Centre
Southampton. Here patients have access to world renowned fertility experts and
the latest research-based developments in fertility medicine.

Consultant Gynaecologist, who has over ten years fertility experience. Mr Brook

donor that best matched James’s characteristics and interests. They felt
extremely grateful to the donor for helping to give them a chance to achieve

and positive act that enables women and couples to achieve their only hope of
having a child. The HFEA has just made changes relating to donor payment and
Complete Fertility Centre Southampton will now reimburse sperm donors £35 for
each visit they make to the Centre and egg donors will receive a total of
