Becoming Parents Through Egg Donation
Sometimes during the surrogacy process, the intended parents are able to use their own sperm and eggs to produce embryos that are transferred into the surrogate’s uterus. But this is not always possible. The prospective mother may be infertile, or perhaps the hopeful parents are a same-sex (male) couple. Regardless of the reason egg donation is required, International Surrogacy Center (ISC) is ready to help intended parents grow their family through this process.
Egg donation is a process in which the donor’s eggs are removed and fertilized in a laboratory, after which the resulting embryos are transferred through in vitro fertilization (IVF) into the uterus of the woman who will (hopefully) get pregnant and carry the baby to term. The eggs may be fertilized by sperm from a male intended parent or an anonymous sperm donor. Sperm donation is a much simpler process than egg donation.
