Egg donation or egg donation is an assisted reproduction technique considered the last option for couples who want to have children, however it is also widely used by homosexual couples or intentional parents who do not have a uterus. It is a
treatment that involves that the mother renounces to contribute her genetics to her baby, since the egg comes from a donor, that is to say that he will only have the genetics of his
father.After long unsuccessful IVF treatments with their own eggs, many couples choose egg donation, as this brings them closer to fulfilling their dream of being parents.
In which cases should one go for egg donation?
Among the most common cases that lead a woman to undergo egg donation treatment are:
- Genetic alterations that can be inherited by their offspring.
- previous unsuccessful fertility treatments with own eggs.
- poor oocyte quality.
- loss of ovarian function.
- premature ovarian failure.
- absence of ovaries (this applies to men)
For their part, the men who resort to this treatment are generally homosexual couples or single men who by nature do not have ovaries to produce their own eggs, that is, they require not only an egg donor, but also a pregnant woman.
