Sperm and Egg Donation:
Donated sperm (sperm not from your partner) can be used in many types of fertility treatment. The donated sperm is used to fertilize an egg either inside the woman’s body (IUI) or outside the body (IVF).
Some interesting history: In 1934, in a study published by Professor Herman Rohleder (1934), the following criteria for donors’ selection were proposed: (a) the sperm of the donor has to be examined; (b) the donor has to undergo a general examination; (c) the donor should preferably be unmarried; (d) the husband himself has to select the donor, paying particular attention to the state of his physical and mental health. Mentions regarding donors’ remuneration are found in 1941 in an article published by Seymour and Koerner, where the conditions of the free donation act are talked about, illustrating the existence of a debate on this issue at that time.
Egg Donation is used in IVF/ICSI treatment. It involves stimulating the donor’s ovaries to produce a number of eggs that are retrieved and then fertilized by your partner’s or donor’s sperm. The embryos that are created this way can be transferred into your womb so you can carry and deliver the baby.
