Process for Egg Donation:
Surrogacy is nothing less than medical revolution for those couples who are facing problems due to infertility but desirous of having their own child. As an Assisted Reproductive Technique or ART, surrogacy is now a globally accepted reproductive procedure. The success of surrogacy treatment largely depends upon the egg donor or surrogate therefore, couples should make judicious decision before going in for donor sperm, egg or embryos of the donor.
A third party donor is a person who donates sperm, eggs or embryo to his/her known friends, family or acquaintances. The most common reason of using donated sperm, eggs or embryos is due to the following factors-
The couple is unable to have children by using their own sperm, egg or embryo due to infertility or some physical or psychological reasons.
There exists some known genetic disorders in the family and the couple does not like to inherit them by passing them through natural reproductive procedure.
Egg donors are an essential part of Assisted Reproduction as about 50% of women suffer from infertility because of decreased or absent ovarian reserve.
Some women may have a specific genetic condition such as cystic fibrosis or fragile x syndrome because of which they cannot have their genetically related babies.
