EGG DONATION

It is a process where the eggs of the donor are harvested from her ovaries through a surgical procedure and fertilized in the laboratory, the same procedure used on IVF patient, but the resulting embryo is then transferred to a woman's uterus. Advances in IVF and egg donation set the stage to allow open and candid discussion of oocyte and embryo donation as a common practice. This breakthrough has given way to the donation of human oocytes and embryos as a common practice similar to other donations such as blood and major organ donations.
