The egg donation It is the process by which some women in optimal health and fertility conditions deliver a group of their Oocytes. This group is extracted directly from the natural reserve found in their ovaries, to be later professed and sent to an egg bank, anonymously and altruistically.
The purpose of this process is to be able to help other couples so that they can enjoy the dream and the experience of forming a family with their loved one or even individually.
Is egg donation is really generous and feasible, in the sense that the donation of these gametes does not affect, or condition at all, any future planning of the woman to continue her normal life and become naturally pregnant. Although it consists of the delivery of something of their own, valuable and genetic; the woman will not suffer any permanent or definitive loss.
Currently, there are many couples worldwide, (including the homoparental and single parents) who cannot have children, whatever their condition, there are multiple and regrettable causes that temporarily or permanently limit their intentions to be parents. Thanks to the solidarity and awareness of this condition experienced by couples, many women have joined the project of selflessly supporting the formation of new families.
A woman in optimal conditions maintains an approximate of 400,000 from birth. During this fertile period, it is determined that there are approximately 400 eggs that reach maturity, and it is these that really govern the possibility of fertilization. For this reason, in most pregnancies only one child is observed, the clear evidence that only one egg was fertilized in its mature stage.
