In #EggDonation, oocytes (eggs) from a young woman are fertilized in the laboratory, with the sperm of the recipient's partner or selected sperm donor, to create embryos. These embryos are transferred into the patient's (the recipient) uterus to develop into a baby. #FertilityDoctor #FertilityClinic #ReproductiveSpecialist

An IVF cycle consists of ovulation induction through the use of fertility medications, egg retrieval, fertilization in a laboratory, and transferring embryos to the uterus. #FertilityDoctor #IVFdoctor
