People trying to conceive may consider using a donor for a variety of reasons, such as:
Reduced egg quality/quantity due to their age or a related medical condition
Multiple failed treatments
Sperm donation for single women
Also embryo donation in some cases, where viable
In some surrogacies.
There are lots of psychological and legal factors to consider when investigating the use of donor gametes and it is really important that you know the facts and support available before you start the process. Important first step information can be found at:
