Egg donation is when a woman gives some of her eggs (ova). Sometimes it is done to help that woman or another woman have a baby. Sometimes it is for research. Sometimes the eggs are frozen for later.
A woman who gives her ova is called an egg donor. Egg donors are recruited, screened, and give consent before participating in the process.
