Embryo Donation & Adoption
Guiding You Through Embryo Donation & What it Involves
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.
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.
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.
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.
IVF has a success rate typically between 28-35%. This is age-dependent and it also depends on sperm quality.
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.
That’s fantastic news! Please contact us today and we can discuss your options.
