surgical removal of an egg from one woman for fertilization with partner's or donor's sperm. The resulting embryo is then transferred into the fallopian tube or uterus of another woman.
See Oocyte Donation.
A form of collaborative reproduction comparable in some ways to sperm donation (see donor insemination), but different in that eggs for donation are much harder to obtain physically than ejaculated sperm are; generally the egg donor undergoes all the steps needed for in vitro fertilisation up to the stage of egg retrieval.
For women who lack good quality eggs, have premature ovarian failure or don't want to risk passing on a known genetic disease. The process takes eggs, usually from a younger woman, fertilizes them with the male's sperm and places them into the patient's uterus.
It is a procedure in which a woman donates her eggs to another. It is typically used for an infertile patient who cannot produce her own eggs; egg quality is poor or when the woman is the carrier of a genetic abnormality.
The process of taking eggs from a donor, fertilizing them with the male partner's sperm in the laboratory dish and transferring the resulting embryos back to the female partner's uterus. The female partner will not be biologically related to the child but will be the birth mother of record. The male partner will be the biological father of the child.
The process by which a fertile woman donates her eggs, usually to help an infertile couple conceive a baby. The egg donor's ovaries are stimulated by drugs to produce extra eggs, which are then retrieved by surgery. The recipient of the eggs also receives hormones to prepare her body for the implantation of an embryo.
As women age their ovaries ability to produce good quality eggs (ovarian reserve) begins to diminish. Using donated eggs allows these women the chance to become pregnant and carry a baby.
A woman donates eggs through IVF/IVCSI treatment, to another woman (recipient).
The process of fertilizing eggs from a donor with the male partner's sperm in a laboratory dish and transferring the resulting embryos to the female partner's uterus. The female partner will not be biologically related to the child but will be the birth mother on record. The male partner will be biologically related to the child.
The process in which one woman allows her eggs to be collected and used to help another woman get pregnant.
Donation of an egg ( oocyte ) by one woman to another who attempts to become pregnant by in vitro fertilization.
A process in which a woman may donate eggs through in vitro fertilization to another woman.
Donation of an egg from one woman to another in hopes of becoming pregnant by in vitro fertilization (IVF). close window
See donor egg cycle.
Surgical removal of an egg from one woman for transfer into the fallopian tube or uterus of another woman. Ejaculation: The male orgasm during which approximately two to five milliters of semen (seminal fluid and sperm) are ejected from the penis.
This process involves the stimulation of a women with fertility drugs, the retrieval of her eggs, their fertilization with the recipient's partner's sperm, and the transfer of the resultant embryos to the uterus of the recipient. Women who might need or will need egg donation include the following: 1) women with no ovaries, either because of their congenital absence or their surgical removal, 2) women with early (premature) menopause, 3) older women, 4) women who fail to produce adequate number of eggs after stimulation with fertility drugs, 5) women with serious transmittable genetic traits or diseases, 6) women who have decreased ovarian reserve, or 7) women who are about to undergo surgery for ovarian cancer, in which case they can freeze the resultant embryos for use at a later date. Egg donors should be young women and should ideally have had prior pregnancy. Most egg donations are done anonymously, however known donors are also acceptable in many instances.
When a woman, her ovaries stimulated by drugs to produce extra eggs that are then surgically removed, donates her eggs to another woman. Usually done to help an infertile couple get pregnant.
When a woman provides her eggsÂ to help an infertile woman. The donor's ovaries are stimulated by drugs to produce extra eggs, which are surgically removed, fertilized, and then implanted in the recipient's uterus.
The act of donating eggs to someone else for use in attempting pregnancy through in vitro fertilization.
