Third-party reproduction

Third party reproduction

Third-party reproduction is a fertility treatment option in which someone other than the patient provides the gametes (sperm or eggs) needed to create an embryo. This can include treatments like in vitro fertilization (IVF) with donor eggs or sperm, or gestational surrogacy, in which another woman carries and delivers a baby for the patient.

Third-party reproduction can be a good option for couples struggling to conceive on their own or for those with a genetic disorder that they do not want to pass on to their child. It can also be a good option for single women or same-sex couples who want to have a genetically related child.

When is egg donation required?

Several conditions make it difficult for women to use their own eggs:

  • A lack of or poor development of ovaries.
  • Premature menopause and ovarian failure.
  • Genetic disease transmission risk.
  • Fertility problems caused by chemotherapy, surgery or illness.
  • In women who have had repeated cycles of IVF with poor egg quality

When is sperm donation required?

Treatment with donor sperm is required when the man  is having the following issues :

  • Azoospermia (absence of sperm)
  • Low sperm count
  • Abnormally shaped sperms
  • Genetic abnormalities
  • Repeated IVF failures due to poor sperm quality


Surrogates are women who accept the responsibility of becoming pregnant, carrying the baby to term, and handing over the child to its biological parents after birth.

The main purpose of surrogacy is to assist women who are unable to carry the baby on their own because of varying conditions, such as:

  • Surgically removed or congenitally absent uterus
  • A uterus that is small or abnormal
  • Repeated implantation failures or miscarriages
  • Repeated IVF failure
  • The risk of pregnancy causing death
