Rearkably, a woman’s uterus does not reject an embryo, even though it is half “foreign” due to fertilization by the mans’ sperm. More fascinating, the uterus accepts an embryo from a double-donation of egg and sperm. There are theories to explain why a woman’s uterus does not reject the embryo as foreign but no definitive reason has emerged.
With an embryo donation, can I have problems of incompatibility or rejection of these embryos?
