Third Party Reproduction

What is Third Party Reproduction?


The phrase “third party reproduction” refers to the use of eggs, sperm or embryos that have been donated by a third person (donor) to enable an individual (intended recipient) or a couple to become parents.


For women and men who are unable to use their own eggs or sperm, those who want to parent without a partner and same sex couples, pregnancy may be achieved using donor eggs and/or donor sperm. Certain genetic conditions may also necessitate using donor eggs and/or donor sperm.


Donors may be known or anonymous to the intended recipient, and third party reproduction can result in a woman being able to carry her own baby or may involve a gestational carrier (surrogate), who will carry the baby to term for the hopeful parents.


How can Village Fertility Pharmacy help?


Every third party reproduction experience is unique and requires a varying level of oversight and sensitivity that only specialized professionals can provide. Our staff understands the complex nature of these assisted reproductive therapies and is prepared to patiently walk you, your partner and your donor/gestational carrier through this process.


When you invite Village Fertility Pharmacy to be a member of your third party reproduction team, you will be assigned a dedicated pharmacist, registered nurse and patient care coordinator to address your questions and concerns.
