The Difference Between Egg Donation and Surrogacy

When you're just starting to learn about your infertility options, you may be overwhelmed by all of the information that's coming your way. The different choices that are available to you can all start to seem the same but of course they are very different and only one will be the right one for you. For example, you might be deciding between egg donation and surrogacy. In egg donation, another woman donates her eggs to you so that you can get pregnant and carry a baby. In surrogacy, your eggs are implanted into the surrogate mother and she carries the baby for you. These are essentially opposites but can start to seem the same when you're facing too many different options. Make sure that you speak with your doctor about all of your choices. Don't hesitate to call with questions if you get confused. That's what the doctor is there for!
