Embryo Donation & Adoption

Guiding You Through Embryo Donation & What it Involves

What is Embryo Donation?

Embryo Donation is a method to help you conceive and build the family you’ve always wanted through receiving another family's donation of embryos.

Essentially, embryo donation is when another couple’s embryo is implanted in your womb during an IVF. This is an option if you and your partner need both egg and sperm donation, or if you’re a woman who cannot use your own eggs.

When is Embryo Donation Recommended?

At IHR, our practitioners will be the ones to make professional recommendations based on your individual situation. They may consider you for embryo donation if:

  • You and your partner are unlikely to conceive using your own eggs and/or sperm for fertility treatment.
  • You or your partner is at risk of passing on a genetic disorder to a child.
  • You’re single and have gone through menopause.

How Does Embryo Donation Work?

The process beings with a doctor and is carried out in our fertility clinic. Embryos are typically donated by couples or women that have had their babies via IVF and want to help aspiring parents. The parent giving birth is the legal mother.

What’s the Process?

Embryos are transferred into your womb through the cervix with a thin catheter within a few days of fertilization. One of our IHR doctors will consult you on the number of embryos you should transfer. They'll help you balance the risk of multiple pregnancies. If all goes according to plan, an embryo will stick to your uterine wall and grow. After the embryo donation transfer, you can take a pregnancy test typically within 2-3 weeks. Don’t worry, you’ll be carefully monitored through the pregnancy process.

What Are the Success Rates?

IVF has a success rate typically between 28-35%. This is age-dependent and it also depends on sperm quality.

How Can I Find More Information?

Feel free to contact us at IHR. We’re also happy to arrange a consultation with our practitioners with you if you’re interested in the Embryo Donation process. Remember, our doctors will make recommendations depending on your situation, which may or may not involve egg or embryo donation.

Dr Cohen Is My Hero! We Have A Beautiful, Healthy Baby Boy Thanks To Him.


The staff, nurses, Dr. Tur-Kaspa and Dr. Cohen are so attentive, caring, thorough, and positive.


If You Read Nothing More, Please Takeaway That We Could Not Be Happier With The Care We Received From Dr. Cohen.


We are looking forward to coming back next year to have our third baby! Thank you IHR and Dr. TK!


IHR Has Been Recognized As One Of The Leading Fertility Centers, And After My Experience There, It's Easy To See Why.


Dr. Cohen - We Cannot Thank You Enough For Helping Us Conceive Our Little Angel. She's 2 Months Old Now And Every Day We Are Grateful For The Miracle You Performed.


Our Experience At The Other Clinic Left Much To Be Desired…There Was A Night And Day Difference With Dr. Tur-Kaspa.

Jennifer and Mike

We Have Undergone Treatment At Two Other Well Known Facilities In The Chicago-Land Area. Dr. Tur-Kaspa Treated Us As Individuals And Made Us Feel Totally At Ease.

Stephanie and Joe

I Have Been Trying For 6 Years And Was Not Successful. I Have Been To Different Hospitals With Nothing To Show For It. But Thanks To Dr Tur-Kaspa, I Am Proud To Say I Am Finally Pregnant.


Dr. Tur-Kaspa never gave up on us and kept our hopes alive. We have a 14 month old baby girl who has changed our lives forever.


Dr. Cohen Was Our Second RE In Our Infertility Journey And He Was Such A Breath Of Fresh Air.


My Wife And I Are So Grateful To Have Been Referred To Dr. Cohen. While Still Being Incredibly Professional, Everyone In The Office Provided A Family-Like Feel, Which I Found Comforting.


Dr. Tur-Kaspa Is One Of The Best Doctors In Town. He Is Not Only Knowledgeable But Confident And Very Attentive.


In my very first consultation with Dr. Tur-Kaspa, he said "Your success is our success". I trusted and believed him and his team from then on and am so glad I did.


I Felt Listened To... I Am Treated Like The Strong, Smart Person That I Am; I Just Need Some Expert Help Becoming Pregnant. I would very much recommend this clinic to any of my family or friends


They Always Explained The Process And Never Made Me Feel Like A Number.


I always felt like, and truly was, in the best hands. Thank you to everyone at IHR for what you've helped us have in our lives - a lovely little boy whom we are obsessed with.


Dr. Cohen and his staff were a complete blessing to our family. We just welcomed our identical twin girls this past month, and we owe it all to Dr. Cohen and the staff at IHR.


After being devastated from 2 miscarriages at a previous clinic I switched to Dr. TK. I became pregnant on my first round of IVF with him and have 6 frozen embryos.


I am so glad my OB doctor recommended IHR to anyone with infertility issues or concerns.


At IHR, the nurses and ultrasounds techs and lab techs all knew me by name... I just felt like everyone there was really rooting for me.


After more than two years of trying without success, we pursued fertility treatment with Dr. Cohen.


I'm writing this review as my infant daughter naps nearby, which would not have been possible without Dr. Tur-Kaspa and the team at IHR.


I immediately felt like he was addressing ME and MY needs, as opposed to having a protocol that may have worked for the massess.


From the very beginning, we felt strongly supported and received the very best personalized care.


It can be overwhelming but I never felt any discomfort from any procedure I had done there and I knew each was getting us closer to our goal of becoming parents.


After having no luck on our own, a friend highly recommended that we go to IHR. I am happy to say that I am currently pregnant with my first child! I do not have enough kind words to say. Everyone at IHR was wonderful.
