Question: Could you combine cloning with IVF?
If a man were sterile, would it be possible for him and his wife to have a baby by using the man's own DNA (not from sperm, since he is sterile) and implanting it into the wife's egg? Would the offspring (if any were possible) be an exact clone of the father or would the baby inherit genes from both the father and the mother, like a normal baby? Edit
Answer: IVF is a revolutionary process where human life is produced in a laboratory. The woman in concern is administered with hormonal treatment by the fertility experts. The treatment results in hyper-stimulation of the woman's ovaries and they produce a number of ovums at one time. The process of IVF involves the combination of these female eggs with sperm to produce embryo.
And thus combination of DNA from somatic cell with female eggs is not a feasible option. Edit
