Known Pros and Cons

Embryo donation eliminates the risks of oocytes retrieval during IVF procedure and OHSS. The costs associated with transfer of donor embryos are significantly lower than the use of a fresh IVF cycle and are comparable to the costs of frozen embryos transferred. While a child, derived from embryo donation, has no genetic link with his/her “caring” parents, a mother’s ability to bear and deliver a healthy child strengthens parent-child bonding.

Selection of Embryo Donors

Decisions to donate surplus embryos may be difficult to make. Embryo donors are thoroughly counseled on the consequences of embryo donation and their incentives are noted. Unlike gamete donations, there is no compensation for them. However, recipients pay all the expenses incurred by embryo donors during the process. Success rates for embryo donation depends on careful selection of embryo donors and embryos.
