What is the purpose of an Egg Donation Agreement?

An Egg Donation Agreement serves to state each party’s intentions and outline and acknowledge their legal rights and responsibilities. This Agreement also serves to clearly dissolve any parental rights as well as physical and legal custody the donor may have had over any embryos created or any child born as a result of her donated eggs. Most IVF physicians require an Egg Donation Agreement be signed before an egg donor begins her fertility medication cycle. We strongly urge any person that is thinking of using a Donor or someone is thinking of donating to have a legal Agreement between the parties.

What is the difference between gestational surrogacy and traditional surrogacy?

In a gestational surrogacy, the surrogate is not biologically related to any resulting child. Gestational surrogacy involves eggs (either from the intended mother or a donor) which undergo in vitro fertilization with the intended father’s sperm or donated sperm. The resulting embryos are then transferred into the uterus of the surrogate and are carried to term.

In a traditional surrogacy, the surrogate’s own eggs are used to conceive the child, typically via what is called intrauterine insemination. IVF and an embryo transfer can also be used with a traditional surrogate. In this case, the surrogate is biologically related to the resulting child, but she relinquishes her parental rights.
