Our top tips for egg donor selection
When looking for the right egg donor for your unique needs, there are a variety of factors to keep in mind.
Know that you have access to high-quality egg donors. During the egg donor selection you can rest assured that all of the donors on our database have been carefully screened for genetic, physical, and psychological health.
Discuss egg donor criteria with your partner. If you're on the journey to parenthood with a partner, it's best to get on the same page with them regarding what you're looking for in a donor. Working together to create a list of what you both want in an egg donor is an important step in finding the ideal match.
Determine if any of your criterion are flexible. After creating your list of what you want in your donor, it can be helpful to pinpoint what criteria isn't a must-have. For example, you and your partner may agree that ethnicity is a nonnegotiable, while education preferences aren't set in stone.This can help minimize frustration during the egg donor selection process.
Decide if you want a known or anonymous donation. The two types of egg donation are known and anonymous donations. Known donations often allow for communication between the egg donor and hopeful parents, and in some cases, one or more meetings.
Anonymous donations do not allow for communication between the donor and hopeful parents.
As the egg donor must agree to the form of donation you prefer, this is an important decision to make before getting too deep into the selection process. While most donors prefer an anonymous donation, many are open to having some communication with the hopeful parents.
Keep an open-mind. While it's helpful to put thought into the kind of donor you'd like, it's important to go into the selection process with an open mind. You might be surprised that you're drawn to a donor who only meets some of your original preferences.
