What is donor conception?

Donor conception means that eggs, sperm or embryos or both eggs and sperm (double donation) from donors are used to help with conception when one or both partners in a heterosexual couple are infertile. It can also be used to aid family building for women without a male partner and lesbian couples. The web site of the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority is a very good source of authoritative information about all fertility procedures involving donated eggs and sperm .
