In vitro fertilization with an egg is an alternative method of conceiving a child. The procedure is carried out in the case of diagnosed female infertility. During IVF, a fertility specialist retrieves an egg from a donor, fertilizes it with the sperm of the husband or sexual partner, and then puts the embryo in the recipient's uterus. The technique helps to conceive a healthy child even in cases when other treatment methods failed to work. IVF with donor oocytes is prescribed to women who have not conceived for 1 year when having an active sexual life without contraception. The procedure has a peculiarity – the patient will not be able to transfer her set of genes to the unborn child. Therefore, it is prescribed in cases where other conception techniques did not produce the desired results. This procedure must be performed only by specialists in an approved egg donor center.

This in vitro fertilization method has both advantages and disadvantages. The main advantage of the procedure lies in the fact that it allows receiving a viable egg cell from the very start. The main disadvantage of this method is associated with its price since the cost of fertilization carried out with the help of egg donation is rather high.
