The donor eggs are fertilized and implanted in the womb of the female partner. The ICMR guidelines for IVF clinics in India permits egg donation and the use of egg donors for this purpose. Our clinic maintains the highest standards for selection of egg donors, screening for disease, repeat checks for sexually transmitted diseases such as HIV, Hepatitis B, C and syphilis and other checks as requested by couples
Embryo Donation: When both the male partner and the female partners are infertile, they opt for embryo donation. In this, the embryo is developed by fusing the sperm and eggs of donors and the embryo is implanted in the uterus of female partner. The couples who are donating the sperm and the eggs undergo a series of tests to rule out any medical ailment and ensure good quality of sperm & eggs.
