Third-party Reproduction Services
Having a family with children is something many people dream of. For some people however, this dream isn’t always the easiest to achieve. This can be due to a variety of reasons and circumstances. So, what if you don’t have the opportunity to become a parent? Will you come to terms with it and give up the dream of a happy family? Fortunately, there is a solution – a third-party reproduction program.
What is third-party reproduction?
Third-party reproduction is one of the various methods used to treat infertility. This method involves the use of donor sperm or eggs for fertilization. A fresh or thawed embryo can also be used for third-party reproduction. In this case, the donors can either get to know the couple or remain anonymous. This method also includes traditional or gestational surrogacy.
There are various reasons to use third-party reproduction. These are the most ones:
- The potential mother has an ovarian function insufficiency;
- The mother has had miscarriages in the past;
- The woman had already undergone IVF before, but with no positive results;
- Third-party reproduction for a single parent who has no partner but still wants to have a baby;
- Parents who have genetic maladies and wouldn’t want to transmit them to their children;
- The age of the potential parents may be dangerous for the birth of a child.
- Same-sex couples who want to have children.
Our third-party reproduction options
To date, there are several kinds of third-party reproduction services. The choice between these often depends on the problem and possibilities. Some people are looking for sperm donors, some can’t produce healthy eggs, and some need a woman to bear and give birth to a child.
- Sperm donation. This is used for couples struggling with male infertility, single women who wish to become mothers, or female same-sex couples. As a rule, an anonymous donor provides sperm for the fertilization of a woman without any paternity claim.
- Egg donation. This is one of the third-party reproduction options in which an egg donor may remain anonymous and have no parental rights over the child. Couples in which a woman can’t use her egg, male same-sex couples, or single men can use a donor egg. This service is often combined with assistance from a surrogate mother. The use of a donor egg helps eliminate any genetic connection between a surrogate mother and a child.
- Spindle transfer. This is the transfer of a nuclear genome from the mother’s oocyte to the donor’s oocyte, from which the genome has been removed. This method is used if the mother has certain mitochondrial DNA malformations that she wouldn’t want to transmit to a child. There is an ethical dilemma related to this method, as there could be germline modifications, potentially leading to different genetic disorders. This type of transfer is still in the research state, even though many children were born using this technique.
- Embryo donation. Aside from sperm and eggs, fresh and frozen embryos can both be used to achieve pregnancy. These may belong to the potential mother, or be obtained from a donor. During this procedure, an embryo is transferred to the uterus of either the legal mother or the surrogate.
Embryos may be created and implanted into a genetic mother if she is unable to conceive on her own, but may have problems bearing and giving birth.
Embryos can be created using third-party donations of both sperm and eggs to implant into a surrogate mother.
- Embryo adoption. In this case, embryos are transferred to the uterus of the surrogate mother for carrying.
- Gestational Carriers. This method is also called gestational surrogacy in which the embryo is transferred to the uterus of the surrogate mother. In this case, the child is in no way genetically related to the woman who gave birth to him/her. For this type of fertilization, the sperm and an egg of the either child’s legal parents or donors can be used.
