Recipient

A woman who receives the fertilized eggs from an egg donor. The partner’s sperm are used to fertilize the eggs. In other cases, donor sperm are selected for fertilization. Once the embryos are ready, they are implanted via embryo transfer into the recipient's uterus. However, this only occurs after a 2 to 3 week period of hormonal preparation, in order to ready the uterus to accept embryos. Once the recipient is pregnant, she will carry, nourish, and deliver the infant.
