Definitions for "Egg Donation"
surgical removal of an egg from one woman for fertilization with partner's or donor's sperm. The resulting embryo is then transferred into the fallopian tube or uterus of another woman.
See Oocyte Donation.
A form of collaborative reproduction comparable in some ways to sperm donation (see donor insemination), but different in that eggs for donation are much harder to obtain physically than ejaculated sperm are; generally the egg donor undergoes all the steps needed for in vitro fertilisation up to the stage of egg retrieval.
