ASRM defines “third-party reproduction” as the use of eggs, sperm, or embryos that have been donated by a third person (donor) to enable an infertile individual or couple (intended recipient) to become parents. Donors may be known or anonymous to the intended recipient. Third-party reproduction also includes traditional surrogacy and gestational carrier or host uterus arrangements.
At DIRM, we offer services for patient couples of all types, from single women needing donor sperm to gay male couples requiring donor egg and a gestational carrier.
Advanced age, multiple failed IVF cycles, poor egg quality, low ovarian reserve, chemotherapy and/or radiation treatment and premature ovarian failure are just a few common reasons why women struggling with infertility require egg donation to achieve pregnancy.
There are several options available for the person who is interested in pregnancy with the help of using a donor egg.
Our embryo donation program provides the opportunity to assist individuals and couples looking to start or add to their own family via the use of donated embryos. Double Donor Embryos are also available.
DIRM offers single women, women affected by male factor infertility and lesbian couples fertility treatment options using Donor Sperm. These options include intrauterine insemination (IUI) and in vitro fertilization (IVF).
Our gestational carriers are either known by the intended parent, or recommended by experienced and reputable attorneys who specialize in third party reproduction.
