The use of donated eggs, sperm, or embryos by a third party (donor) to allow infertile individuals or couples (intended recipient) to become parents is referred to as “third-party reproduction” or “Donor Treatment”. Donor Treatment is a difficult process with social, ethical, and legal implications. Donating sperm, eggs, or embryos is a profoundly gracious gift of life, and it is sometimes the only way for many couples and individuals to achieve their dreams of starting a family.
Although it may appear to be a straightforward procedure, the decision to start a family using a donor’s eggs, sperm, or embryo may have far-reaching consequences for everyone involved, including the receiver, the donor, and the child born as a result of the donor treatment.
Banker IVF’s professional staff is here to give your assistance and support throughout the process so you can make the right choice for yourself. Some couples may be able to achieve parenthood by using donor gametes (sperm/egg/embryo), and our medical team and counsellors will help you balance the upsides and downsides of this choice. This can help some couples see the light at the end of the tunnel on their lengthy road to infertility treatments.
Donor Egg Treatment:
Egg (ovum) donation is a procedure in which the eggs of a healthy young woman (the egg donor) are fertilized with the sperm of the patient’s spouse, and then the embryos are implanted into the patient’s uterus. Not only does this procedure provide the couple with the gift of motherhood, but it also allows the woman to experience the joys of pregnancy.
Who Is It For?
Donor Sperm Treatment
Couples who are unable to obtain sperm naturally or through medical treatment for the man are provided with donated sperm. The donor sperm is either used to inseminate the woman (IUI) or to fertilise her eggs (IVF). The couple is obviously counselled together on the implications and procedure of such a procedure.
All donor sperm samples must come from a reputable and licensed sperm bank. These sperm samples are from healthy donors who have had their sperm tested for viral infections and common genetic abnormalities. It is never a good idea to employ new or unknown donors.
Who Is It For?
When the spouse has one of the following disorders, donor sperm treatment is required:
Donor Embryo Treatment
Embryo donation is a method that allows embryos created by using eggs from a ovum donor and sperms from a sperm bank to other infertile patients in order to help them conceive. The embryo thus created by anonymous donors is transferred into the uterus of the recipient woman once her uterine lining is ready.
