Third Party Reproduction
At Eden Fertility Centers, we care for our patients and help them with a ‘third party reproduction’ as a solution that benefits them from donor assistance. It includes fertility treatments where a couple is helped to achieve pregnancy by taking another person’s egg, embryo, uterus or sperm. There are various options in third-party reproduction that include the use of donor embryos or a gestational carrier. We also have a robust surrogacy program, LGDTQ+other fertility options, sperm donation, egg freezing and egg donation program.
Surrogacy, particularly gestational surrogacy, is emerging as a popular option for helping couples with fertility issues start or grow their families.
Surrogacy is a method of reproduction where intended parents work with a gestational surrogate who will carry and care for their baby(ies) until birth. It’s been opted by many couples to live their dream of a complete family. Our experienced and dedicated team of fertility doctors at Eden fertility center helps couples become parents and enjoy their parenthood through surrogacy. If it is a case to become a surrogate mother or an intended parent, our team will be a ray of guidance to your entire surrogacy journey.
If a woman wants to be a surrogate then she must meet the following requirements:
- needs to be between 21 years to 42 years
- should have an uncomplicated pregnancy
- willing to take injectable medications
- have had a successful delivery
- must be healthy to deliver a healthy baby
A careful examination involves a willing surrogate to undergo rigorous medical screenings, that include screening for various infectious diseases and sexually transmitted diseases as well.
Donor eggs are required when woman’s eggs do not fertilize and develop properly due to many factors such as age, genetic abnormalities, damage from treatments such as cancer therapy, premature menopause or unexplained infertility. With egg donation, the father/sperm provider contributes genetically and the recipient mother carries the baby.
Egg donation has become the most trusted treatment option nowadays. It can be used as a treatment for all those women who are not able to use their own eggs for carrying out a successful pregnancy.
How to Choose an Egg Donor
Eden Centers for Advanced Fertility works with many egg donor agencies and has access to an extensive selection of egg donors. Egg donors should:
- be between 21 to 30 years of age
- possess a healthy weight
- be non-smokers,
- have no medical condition or genetic diseases
- be physically and emotionally healthy
Intended parents will be shown egg donor profiles that include childhood and adult photographs of the donors, description of physical traits like eye color, height, weight, hair color, and family background), a personal profile where donors provides insight to their personality, talents, and achievements.
The intended parents will then be guided through the matching steps of selecting egg donors. With the egg donation process, a father/sperm provider contributes to the genetic makeup and the recipient mother carries the baby to deliver a healthy child.
LGBTQ+ Fertility Options
Eden is proud to offer many third party reproductive fertility procedures to help LGBTQ+ individuals have the opportunity to become parents, including IUI, IVF, Reciprocal IVF and careful medical and psychological evaluation of egg donors and gestational carriers.
At Eden, we offer services to the LGBT community, and we must assure that you have made a great decision to enjoy your parenthood. We assist lesbian women and gay men on the entire journey of becoming parents. When it comes to initiating a family, we definitely understand that the LGBTQ community suffers from various challenges that need proper assistance.
Our medical staff is well versed in developing best-suited treatment plans as per their needs. The team has developed a custom-tailored program for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender couples or individuals that may include services like insemination (IUI), in vitro fertilization (IVF), sperm donation and egg donation.
Fertility and Lesbian Couples:
At Eden Fertility Centers, we believe that each and every woman deserves her share to become a mother. So why not help the community. For Lesbian couples, inseminations are typically used first to conceive a child. There are few couples who wish for one partner to conceive, however, there are few other couples as well who wish for both partners to conceive at different times. In this case, both the partners will undergo an initial consultation with one of our specialists to discuss the entire medical history, treatment options, and testing.
Lesbian couples may choose to conceive through the Reciprocal IVF process wherein both the partners are involved in such a way that one partner’s eggs (contributes to DNA) and the other partner’s uterus (healthy uterine environment) is used to carrying out the pregnancy. In this manner, both future moms are genetically, emotionally and physically connected with the child and help them in the entire journey of their parenthood.
Fertility and Gay Couples:
We help gay couples who want to have a child using a gestational carrier. All the potential gestational carriers are carefully screened by our experts prior to starting treatment. We believe every man has the right to become a father and family building for same-sex male couples is now possible.
We are able to help gay male couples who wish to become parents by using a gestational carrier along with an egg donor. The process is carried further with the help of In-Vitro fertilization (IVF) where using an egg from a donor and sperm from one or both of the male partners is carried out to get the best results. The best embryo is transferred to the uterus of a surrogate to carry the pregnancy.
