It’s sometimes difficult to conceive a child. There could be health issues with your ovaries or your egg production or with your partner’s sperm not reaching the egg as it should. An option that you have is egg donation to become a parent. The first thing that you would need to do to get started with the process is have an examination to determine the issue and to discuss the process of egg donation.
Before you begin the process of egg donation, you need to make sure you’ve exhausted other options that are available. If you’re in an emotionally stable place, then the process will be a bit more enjoyable. Our professionals are ready and willing to discuss any details with you further, so you know exactly what to expect.
As long as your eggs are still healthy, then they can be removed and fertilized before being placed back in your uterus. Another option is to find someone who can donate eggs that are placed in your uterus. You should weigh the benefits of each option so that you make the best decision for yourself and your family. The egg donor is screened and must meet certain medical requirements before donating.
We will likely want to coordinate the health of the lining of your uterus with the development of the eggs so that there is a better chance of development. Fertility medications are usually taken by the person who will donate the eggs whether it’s you or another person. You will usually take estrogen and other hormone supplements when you use egg donation to become a parent. The amount will sometimes be increased just before the actual donation process so that your uterus acts as it would just before your menstrual cycle begins.
We will usually transfer more than one embryo during the egg donation process to become a parent. This will increase the chances of one of the embryos developing in your uterus. Keep in mind that multiple embryos that are transferred could all develop, which will mean multiple babies. This is why it’s important to think about the number of embryos that you want to have transferred in case all of them are healthy and develop.
