Donor Embryo Treatment Mumbai or Embryo donation is a form of third party reproduction. It is defined as the giving—generally without compensation—of embryos remaining after one family’s in vitro fertilization to either another person or couple for implantation or to research. Where it is given for the purpose of implantation, the donation is followed by the placement of those embryos into the recipient woman’s uterus to facilitate pregnancy and childbirth in the recipient. The resulting child is considered the child of the woman who carries it and gives birth, and not the child of the donor. This is the same principle as is followed in egg donation or sperm donation. Most often, the embryos are donated after the woman for whom they were originally created has successfully carried one or more pregnancies to term.
Embryo donation can be anonymous (donor and recipient parties are not known to each other, and families have no ability to contact one another), semi-open (families can interact via a third party, but do not share personally identifiable information in order to provide a layer of privacy protection), open (family identities and contact information are shared so the families can interact directly in various types of relationships), or ID disclosure (offspring can request and receive donor contact information when the offspring reaches 18)
Some use the term “embryo donation” or Donor Embryo Treatment Mumbai to refer strictly to anonymous embryo donation, and “embryo adoption” to refer to an open relationship. Others use the terms interchangeably because, regardless of the relationship, a clinical assisted reproduction procedure is involved, and the recipient couple is preparing to raise a child not genetically related to them. Lawyers who assist those trying to acquire an embryo state the term “embryo adoption” or Donor Embryo Treatment Mumbai is a misnomer because the transfer of an embryo is handled as property transfer. Abortion rights advocates, advocates of embryonic stem cell research, and members of the fertility industry object to referring to the transfer as an “adoption” because they feel it gives an embryo the same status as a child. Most doctors describe the process as “embryo donation”.
According to a survey by the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, 54% of fertility patients want to preserve their remaining embryos for future use. Another 21% want to donate leftover embryos for research. Donating embryos or Donor Embryo Treatment Mumbai for research may be a good alternative when patients receive proper, honest and clear information about the research project, the procedures and the scientific value of the research. The remaining 7% of those surveyed are willing to donate leftover embryos to another couple
Dr. Jeffrey Nelson is Director of the Huntington Reproductive Center, one of California’s largest IVF clinics or Donor Embryo Treatment Mumbai. He reports that “Twenty-five percent of patients want to donate their [spare] embryos – not as many as I’d like.” He added, “People tend to hold on to their embryos because they don’t want to make a decision. We started buying more and more cryopreservation tanks, and we finally had to say that there’s a fee for a certain number of years’ storage, and beyond that, the price starts to escalate.” It costs up to $1,200 a year to store frozen embryos. As of May 2012, there were about 600,000 frozen embryos stored in laboratories and fertility clinics, costing the donor families about $72 million annually for storage fees.
