There is an increasing trend in the use of donor eggs by women unable to otherwise conceive. Third-party reproduction, specifically in vitro fertilization (IVF) with donor eggs, has particular ethical issues including possible conflict of interest between provider, donor, and recipient; completeness of informed consent; whether the donor has legal representation; and follow-up support.
