Brief Answer:
DNA analysis

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.
Once the pregnancy occurs after the embryo transfer, the only way to confirm that the sperm and ovum belong to you both is by genetic and DNA analysis of the fetus in pregnancy, by parental procedures like amniocentesis or chordocentesis and by blood analysis after the baby is born.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
