Family Times Magazine, a site created for connecting your business to families & your family to the best in the business, interviews Mark P. Trolice, M.D., for his insights on embryo donation and offering hope to infertile couples seeking to grow their families.
“Using donor embryos is one of the only solutions for some people struggling with infertility.” says Dr. Trolice.
Originally referred to as embryo “adoption,” American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) states, “The term embryo adoption is inaccurate” and should be replaced by embryo donation. Third-party reproduction is defined as the use of three separate sources for pregnancy, i.e. egg, sperm, and gestational carrier. While egg donation and sperm donation have been popular forms of third-party reproduction, embryo donation has been slower in growth and acceptance despite the first successful live birth using embryo donation in 1989.
