One option for couples with remaining embryos they no longer need is to donate them for another couple to use in the hopes of conceiving a baby. We have limited availability of donor embryos stored at CFA. Many patients find donated embryos at agencies and have them sent here for the procedure.
Sometimes the donating couple does so with the intention that the donation is anonymous, and no future correspondence will be allowed. Alternatively, some couples donate with the intention of it being open, wanting a chance for communication between the families and the biological siblings. Each scenario varies on how “open” it is.
If you are interested in pursuing embryo donation, please contact our office to schedule a new patient appointment with one of our physicians.
