Egg Donor Qualifications and Requirements

We believe that every person who even considers being an Egg Donor is an angel, but sadly not everyone is a good candidate. So, before you apply to be an Egg Donor for our agency, please be sure that you fit the following qualifications:

  • Between the ages of 21 & 30 (there are some exceptions and we will consider some donors over the age of 30 – in most cases they have been a successful egg donor before or have some unique qualifications – if unsure please ask us)
  • Height/Weight Ratio in normal range; healthy BMI
  • Physically healthy
  • Regular Menstrual Cycles
  • Not taking (most) doctor prescribed medications (please check if you are unsure)
  • Non-Smoker
  • No current use of psychoactive drugs or nicotine (some alcohol is okay)
  • Not registered with any Native American tribes
  • No significant psychiatric disorder
  • No family history of serious inheritable genetic disorders or diseases
  • Dependable, mature, and able to keep appointments
  • Compassionate individual with true passion to help another family have a baby
Being an Egg Donor takes a full commitment. Here is what is expected of you should you join our team:
  • Be willing to converse with a 3rd party reproduction therapist or psychologist to discuss issues related to egg donation
  • Consult with a lawyer chosen by us to review and sign a binding contract
  • Meet with a Genetic Counselor to review your family health history. If more testing is needed, you will be open (and required) to do so
  • Have your healthcare monitored by the Intended Parent’s choice of fertility doctor (aka reproductive endocrinologist or RE) and staff.
  • Undergo all the traditional screening tests including, but not limited to:
    • Genetic screen tests
    • HIV
    • Hepatitis
    • Pelvic exams
    • Pap Smears
    • Cultures
    • Ultrasounds
    • Urine tests
    • Drug tests
    • STDs
  • Follow exact instructions about self-administering injections, most of which are subcutaneous (short needles).
  • Be consistent with all doctor appointments, which can occur every few days or as often as daily at the end of the three-week period that medically prepares you for your egg retrieval.
  • Have eggs retrieved vaginally. This includes a painless ultrasound-guided needle – with no incision or scarring. A light anesthesia will be administered, so you won’t feel a thing. You will be released the same day post monitoring and go back to your hotel where you can rest. You may feel fine the next day or feel the need to relax. Some bloating may occur for a few days to one week post-retrieval.
