IVF or in vitro fertilization is a minimally invasive procedure for assisted reproduction which involves the collection of gametes from the intended parents and then combining them to form the zygote. After examining the zygote, it is carefully placed in the uterus of the female partner where it grows naturally. The procedure requires healthy male and female gametes, however, in some cases where either of the two partners is not able to produce sufficient healthy gametes, there might be a need of third party IVF.
Also known as third party reproduction, third party IVF is an alternative for those couples who are not able to conceive naturally or using the traditional IVF method. Third-party IVF is an assisted reproduction technique in which DNA or gestation is provided by a third party or donor other than either or both of the intended parents. Over the past few years, third party IVF has become a dominant treatment.

It involves the use of sperms collected from a suitable donor and fertilizing them with the eggs taken from the intended mother.
If the sperms are not healthy enough or the sperm count is low, it is still possible to conceive by using the viable sperms collected from a large sample, however, if the patient does not produce any sperm at all, i.e. the sperm is non-existent, using a donor sperm is the best way to complete your family.
Finding the right donor isn't very difficult, however, there are certain eligibility criteria that need to fulfilled, i.e.
The procedure is carried out using a healthy egg taken from a suitable donor and fertilizing it with a healthy sperm taken from the intended father.
Donor eggs are the best alternative when the intended mother is not able to produce healthy eggs or has nil egg reserves owing to infertility. This serves as a ray of hope for hundreds and thousands of women who want to conceive a child in their 40s and 50s or may have had failed IVF cycles. The embryo, so produced, is placed inside the womb of the intended mother and allowed to grow naturally.
The eligibility criteria for an egg donor include:

It is a type of assisted reproduction in which the intended parents enter into a legal agreement with a woman who agrees to carry and take care of their child till birth. The latter is known as a gestational carrier or a surrogate mother. The real mother, however, is the one whose eggs were used for the process of fertilization.
Surrogacy is an option for those couples in which the female partner is not able to have full-term pregnancy because of their age or owing to some underlying medical conditions, uterine anomalies, hysterectomy, failed attempts at IVF or multiple miscarriages.
