Third party reproduction is expanding in the United States and worldwide. Psychosocial research in this area has not kept pace with advances in reproductive biology and technology. Therefore, the purpose of this systematic review of research was to describe the elements of psychosocial research involving women who have undergone third party infertility treatment using donated oocytes for conception. The sample criteria included all research articles published between January 1983 and June 2002 that involved psychosocial elements of donor oocyte recipient women. Studies were identified using CINAHL, MEDLINE, Psych Info, Wilson’s Social Science Abstracts, citations from bibliographies of previously located articles, and two retrieval sessions with a medically trained librarian. Sixteen research articles were identified for inclusion in the review. Each research article was coded and the data analyzed using a qualitative discursive approach because of the multiple methodologies used in the sample and the propensity for exploratory, retrospective, and descriptive studies. A total of 786 recipient women participated in the sixteen research reports. The most common element investigated centered on the issue of disclosure. Among those articles examining disclosure, between 26% and 88% of recipient women reported that they intend to inform the child about the nature of conception. Other elements identified included examination of desired donor characteristics, motivation for selecting oocyte donation as a treatment for infertility, developmental issues encompassing the pros and cons of motherhood at age 40 or greater, assessment of the mother-infant relationship, and the selection of a known versus an anonymous ovum donor. This study has implications for nurses practicing within reproductive, obstetrical, neonatal, pediatric, and women’s health nursing. Understanding of the psychosocial elements expressed by recipients of oocyte donation will lead to improved health care for these women and their offspring. AN: MN030293
