In case of egg donation, it can be donated by a known donor of yours or from some unknown person. Both the intended parent and known donor will be put on medication so that the menstrual cycles can be synchronised. You will be given drugs to thicken the uterine lining and donor will be on follicles stimulating medicines and injection. The eggs retrieved from the donor are mixed with your partner’s sperm for fertilisation
For sperm donation, usually the donor is put through various tests to check any abnormalities or genetic disorder if any, check of family history as well as the age should be between 25-45yrs.
If both the partners don’t produce eggs and sperm of their own, then embryo donation is considered. Usually when couple undergoes IVF treatment, they leave with 1-2 unused embryos, which are frozen and stored for their future cycles. But if they get success in their first attempt itself, then in such cases, some couples readily agree to donate the remaining embryos to someone in need.
