Purchasing donor sperm

My husband and I are looking at purchasing donor sperm from London sperm bank or a European sperm bank. Our clinic recommends we get MOT 20+. We noticed that it wasn’t available for IVF/ICSI but available for IUI. We were wondering why, and if anyone has any tips or advice? Thank you.x.

Assuming it’s similar to US banks, the amounts available to purchase and options are different for each donor, so I think it may just depend on how much that person donated and how it was prepared(frozen)

You only meed MOT20 for iui for ivf/icsi you need MOT5 or 10 X

Are you with the NHS or a private clinic? IUI uses motility 20+ motility because it requires good motility to ensure the sperm travels up when inseminated. Where are as IVF/ICSI the sperm is placed close to the egg or injected directly in to the egg so motility does not need to be so high. If you are doing IVF/ICSI you do not need 20+.
