Donor sperm / oocyte programme is alternative treatment offered to infertile couples who fail to conceive with their own gametes.
Who needs this sperm donation:
It is a process by which the donor gives ejaculated semen sample for donation. It is cryopreserved labeled and used when required. It is an anonymous process. Only the physical characteristics of donor are available for selection.
The donor is given gonadotrophin injection to stimulate her ovaries to produce multiple eggs. These are retrieved, fertilized with the sperm of the husband or donor. The resulting embryo is transferred to the recipient’s uterus. It is again and anonymous process where both the donor and recipient are double blinded.
