The DONATION also known as third party reproduction is a ray of hope for childless couples who
are unable to produce their biological child. The donor program may vary depending on the health
problems of the infertile couple, from egg donation, semen donation to embryo donation. If the
failure of self-cycle treatment or pair problems, then IVF with donation is a blessing. Depending on
the patient’s need, an egg, semen or embryo may be donated.
