At IVF & Test tube baby center we have a comprehensive facility for ovum and embryo donation for patients who cannot produce eggs or sperms required to conceive.
In some cases the ovaries fail to produce eggs and the only option to conceiving is using eggs donated by another woman.
Using donated ovum also eliminates chances of genetic diseases that pass on from mother to child. Similarly, if it becomes impossible to collect sperm even from testes in an azoospermic male, donated sperms have to be made use of.
In certain cases both the sperms and ova from a third person are required for pregnancy.
In this case, embryos donated by other couples are transferred into the uterus of the female patient.
Egg donation is the process by which a woman donates eggs for purposes of assisted reproduction or bio-medical research. For assisted reproduction purposes, egg donation typically involves in vitro fertilization technology, with the eggs being fertilized in the laboratory; more rarely, unfertilized eggs may be frozen and stored for later use. Egg donation is a third party reproduction as part of assisted reproductive technology (ART).
In the United States, the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) has issued guidelines for these procedures, and the FDA has a number of guidelines as well. There are boards in countries outside of the US who have the same regulations. However, egg donation agencies in the U.S. can legally choose whether to abide by ASRM regulations or not.
