FAQ


 What is Embryo Donation?


When a couple undergoes IVF treatment, a number of eggs are artificially fertilized. Since as many as 20 eggs may be collected from a woman, multiple embryos are likely to develop, yet only a few will be transferred back to a woman for implantation. The remaining embryos are usually frozen for later use. However, not all couples go on to use their embryos for another pregnancy. As a result, couples may decided whether they would like to have their embryos destroyed, as they can only be frozen for so long; if they would like to donate the embryos to research; or to donate the embryos to another couple who cannot conceive on their own. Alternatively, embryo donation may occur through embryo creation. This is when an infertile couple uses donor eggs and donor sperm to create an embryo. As with a donated embryo, this embryo will not be biologically related to you or your partner.
