Embryo donation is a well-established and successful form of assisted conception treatment. It offers hope for select groups of couples who previously thought they could never have children. Embryo donation is usually less expensive and has a fewer medical complications compared to in-vitro fertilization (IVF). The success of embryo donation compares favorably with egg donation.
It is important that both the donor and recipient couples be adequately counseled, screened and made aware of the psychological, moral and legal implications of embryo donation before being accepted onto the program.
