News & Events

Couples with irreversible infertility problems or other medical issues need donors to achieve their dream family. Many couples undergoing IVF treatment at our infertility clinic in Thane choose to donate the remainder of their eggs or embryos to others. In fact, we are seeing a gradual but apparent rise in the number of couples who seek egg and embryo donors due to increasing awareness and acceptance of this medical practice. 

The Egg and Embryo Donation Procedures

Essentially, both egg and embryo donation procedures are almost similar. The donated egg or embryo is cultured via in-vitro fertilization. The identities of the donors are classified, and they have no influence over the baby’s life. However, the two processes of egg and embryo donations are not interchangeable. 

In reality, these IVF-based donation processes are a bit distinct and are advised for various pregnancy-oriented issues in most cases. 

What Is Egg Donation And To Whom Is It Recommended?

In the egg donation process, healthy egg cells from a donor are fertilized with the male partner’s sperms in an incubator. Once they successfully fertilize into an embryo, they are implanted into the female recipient partner’s uterus to grow. Hence, the baby possesses the male partner’s genes and grows within the female without the donor’s influence. 

It is typically recommended when:

  • The female is unable to produce healthy quality or quantity of eggs for ovulation.

  • The female is over 40, which has led to reduced egg cells and higher chances of genetic mutations.

  • The infertility issue is hereditary.

  • The female has undergone chemotherapy or suffers from premature menopause.

  • No infertility treatment has helped the female produce healthy egg cells.

What Is Embryo Donation And To Whom Is It Recommended?

The embryo donation process involves a male and a female donor. The sperms of a healthy male donor are used to fertilize egg cells taken from the female donor. The developed embryos are implanted into the female recipient who wishes to have the baby. 

Embryo donation may be recommended if:

  • Both the partners suffer from irreversible infertility issues. 

  • The female’s ovaries have been affected by a severe transmittable disease.

  • There is a risk of transmitting a hereditary health condition, such as cancer.

  • A single mother wishes to have a baby after menopause.


The Key Differences Between These Procedures

Considering the information mentioned above, it can be easily concluded that:

  • An egg donation process involves only a female donor, while the embryo donation process requires you to find healthy male and female donors.

  • Egg donation can only be opted by couples when the male partner can produce healthy sperms.
