These eggs are then taken to the laboratory and mixed with the intended father's sperm. This is followed by a period of incubation. If fertilization ensues, the resulting embryos are transferred into the donee's uterus.

that are associated with the procedure. Fatality has been reported and approximately 0.5-5% of those undergoing the procedure are known to suffer from side effects. The donor should completely understand all the nuances of the procedure, before signing the informed consent.
