Hi, I’m Dr. Marc Sklar, the fertility expert, and welcome to The Fertility Blog. In this post, we’re going to be talking about surrogacy and donor. I have 2 experts with me, from CareSurgogacy, one of the leading surrogacy agencies in San Diego

SOME DEFINITIONS TO HELP YOU UNDERSTAND THE PROCESS
Surrogacy: A surrogacy arrangement or surrogacy agreement is the carrying of a pregnancy for intended parents. There are two main types of surrogacy, gestational surrogacy (also known as host or full surrogacy) which was first achieved in April 1986 and traditional surrogacy (also known as partial, genetic, or straight surrogacy).
EGG DONOR: Egg donation is the process by which a woman donates eggs for purposes of assisted reproduction. For assisted reproduction purposes, egg donation typically involves in vitro fertilization technology, with the eggs being fertilized in the laboratory; more rarely, unfertilized eggs may be frozen and stored for later use
SPERM DONOR: Sperm donation is a procedure in which a man donates semen — the fluid containing sperm that is released during ejaculation — to help an individual or a couple conceive a baby.
IVF: A medical procedure whereby an egg is fertilized by sperm in a test tube or elsewhere outside the body.
