Some patients require the help of donor sperm or ova in order to achieve pregnancy. The sperm/ova bank at Vatsalya will match the client with the most suitable donor for a fruitful pregnancy. Donor treatment services include:
Sperm donation is a procedure in which a man donates semen — the fluid containing sperm that is released during ejaculation — to help an individual or a couple conceive a baby. Donated sperm can be injected into a woman's reproductive organs (intrauterine insemination - IUI) or used to fertilize mature eggs in a lab (in vitro fertilization - IVF). The use of donated sperm is known as third-party reproduction. A man who makes a sperm donation can be known or anonymous to the recipient. Sperm donations made to a known recipient are called directed donations. Before you can donate sperm, you must be screened for medical conditions and other risk factors. It's also important to understand the possible emotional, psychological and legal issues of sperm donation.
Ova or Egg donation is a process in which a fertile woman donates an egg, or oocyte, to another woman to help her conceive. It is a part of assisted reproductive technology, or ART. The procedure typically involves a doctor removing an egg or eggs from the donor, fertilizing them in a laboratory, and then transferring the resulting embryos into the recipient's uterus. Doctors do this using an implantation procedure, such as in vitro fertilization (IVF). Sometimes, specialists at the facility may freeze some or all of the embryos for later use or implantation in different women. Egg donation frequently benefits women who cannot use their own eggs for various reasons, including ovarian failure, avoiding congenital anomalies in the fetus, or advanced age.
Embryo Donation may come from couples who have undergone IVF and do not wish to have any more children, so they officially offer the embryos to other couples giving them the chance to become parents themselves. This is usually the case when couples have twins or triplets via IVF, or they already have other children, so they decide they want to offer their extra good quality embryos to other couples.
