Donation treatment

Sometimes, your own gametes might not be enough, and you could need eggs and/or sperm from a donor. At our clinics, we do insemination and IVF with donated sperm and IVF with donated eggs, commonly known as sperm donation and egg donation. Treatments are applicable to same-sex female couples, single women, and opposite-sex couples when their own gametes cannot result in pregnancy.

Insemination with donated sperm

Insemination is the process of introducing sperm into the uterus using a thin plastic tube, also called a catheter, in conjunction with ovulation. The sperm swims to the egg, which is fertilized, and then travels through the oviduct (fallopian tube) to the uterine cavity.

IVF with donated sperm

When you don’t have your own sperm, you can use donor sperm in IVF. The treatment means that the ovaries are stimulated with hormones to make the eggs mature, and the eggs are then taken out and fertilized with donor sperm. A fertilized egg, also known as an embryo, is placed into the uterus after a few days.

IVF with donated eggs / Egg donation

When your own eggs cannot result in pregnancy, which may be due to a variety of factors, donor eggs are used. The treatment means that eggs from a donor are fertilized with the spouse’s or partner’s sperm, or donated sperm, and grown for a few days before a fertilized egg (then called an embryo) is inserted into the uterus.

Double donation / Embryo donation

When both donated eggs and donated sperm are needed for treatment, it is called “double donation” or “embryo donation.” In this case, neither the woman nor the man has any genetic link to the child-to-be.

Do you want to donor your eggs?

Donating eggs can provide someone else the opportunity to have a family, which many individuals have a strong wish for.
