Fertility Patients Frozen by Indecision Over Extra Embryos – other countries can’t get donors

Posted Dec 04 2008 12:18pm

I found this very interesting as in the news of late, countries like the UK can’t find enough donors for sperm banks, so do we share the wealth or just let the fruit rot on the vine?  How does a couple donate is another big question too.  BD 

Fertility patients are struggling to decide what to do with embryos left over from treatment.

It’s a big issue. About half a million embryos lie frozen in clinics around the country, USA Today writes, citing a study appearing in Fertility and Sterility, the journal of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine. The study is only available to subscribers. Here’s a link to the journal’s site.
