    1. Hi everybody

      my husband and I need a double donation to become parents since our semen analysis doesn’t show any spermatozoa and I have a very low ovarian reserve. We’re also interested in embryo adoption. We are looking for clinics in Oregon and will have our first visit at the fertility center of Oregon. My husband is of Latin origin and we would like to know of this center has donors with the same characteristics because for us this is very important.

      • Hi Fertilitypatient,

        Don’t worry about this. Almost every fertility clinic has egg and sperm donors of different ethnicities. Besides, nowadays in the US there are many Latino people, so there are sure to be Latino donors as well. What can be more complicated is that there are embryos to adopt with the traits you are looking for. However, it is best to ask at the clinic.

        Hope this answer helps you.

        Best regards

    2. Hello

      I would like to know if for embryo adoption, the recipient, in this case, should meet some requirement, that is, in an IVF I know that the BMI must be under 30. I am quite overweight and despite having PCOS and my husband’s poor quality sperm I have become pregnant 3 times. The first pregnancy was carried to term without any complications and by spontaneous pregnancy. The second was a complete miscarriage and the third and last one was a retained abortion with blighted ovum and ended in a curettage…My doubt is if as with IVF I should have a maximum BMI to be able to perform the treatment. Mostly for making an appointment and not wasting our time or yours. Greetings

      • hi Samara

        In principle, BMI is not a prerequisite for embryo adoption, although it may be a clinical criterion due to the possible risks involved. Therefore, it is best to ask the center itself. You can obtain more information about this assisted reproduction treatment in the following article: Is embryo donation the same as embryo adoption?

        If you are looking at fertility centers to do an embryo adoption, I recommend you access the Fertility Report. This is a totally free tool with which you will obtain a personalized list of the clinics in your area of interest and surroundings that meet our quality criteria and that best adapt to your needs. You will also receive information on prices, services included, services not included, etc.

        I hope this helps you.
