Egg Donation

Eggs are provided to the Intended Parent(s) by the donor to use for IVF. Many options exist for donor eggs: a known donor (friend or family member), finding a donor through an agency, or selecting a batch of frozen eggs through an egg bank! Eggs can be fertilized with one or both partners sperm (where applicable).

Surrogacy

Also called a Gestational Carrier, the surrogate will carry the pregnancy for the Intended Parent(s). A surrogate can be known (a friend or family member) or connected through an agency.

Sperm Donation

Donor sperm in Canada is usually purchased through one of the three authorized distributors. This includes Canadian donors as well as those from the USA. If you have a known sperm provider (friend or family member) then it can be processed and used for fertility treatment in the same manner as an anonymous donor.

Fertility Preservation

For patients seeking gender confirming surgery or other treatments like hormone therapy, gametes (sperm or eggs) can be frozen for future use in building a family.
