EMBRYO | EGG |
Donor conception is the use of sperm, eggs or embryos donated by someone else in your fertility treatment.
Around 2,000 babies in the UK are born each year using donated sperm, eggs or embryos.
The experience of people who have had donor-conceived children shows that this can be a very positive way to create a family.
Usually a clinic recommends donor conception because treatment would be unlikely to be successful if you were to use your own eggs or sperm.
