Have you decided to use donor eggs for IVF? Well, this decision must not have been really easy for you. People mostly go for donor eggs after having repeated failed IVF cycles with their eggs. Some people are also forced to get donor eggs because of insufficient ovarian production. So, if your doctor has suggested you go for donor eggs and you have already made up your mind to do so, then let me then you are at the right place, as we are going to tell you a few things that you are required to consider before choosing an egg donor:

Making a Choice Between a Known Donor And An Anonymous Donor

Some people believe it is better for you to go for a known donor. For those people, you can ask a relative or friend close to you to donate eggs. In this way, the process can be a safer one. However, a lot of people prefer going for anonymous donors also. So, this is one big thing that you are required to consider. If you do not want your child to have any relationship with the donor, it would be better for you to go for an anonymous egg donor, as the anonymous egg donors will not reveal their identity to the child or the parents.

Look Through The Medical History of The Donor

You need to check the donor’s medical history for any genetic disorders or sexually transmitted diseases. The donor should also undergo proper physiological evaluation. You should also consult a doctor regarding whether the donor is perfect for you. Also, check the donor’s present health conditions. This is once again an important consideration to be made.

Check The Ethnicity And The Appearance

There are a lot of people who wish to check their ethnicity as well before choosing an egg donor for themselves. So, if it matters to you, then you should also do the same. This is especially true for anonymous donors. Consider the donor’s physical appearance and personality, as they will impact your child in some way or another.

Consider The Location

It is also important to check the location of the donor. Make sure that the donor’s house is at a location close to your IVF location. This will make it easy for you to make the travel arrangements. You will also be able to get the entire job done within a budget. You can also pick donors who have already donated eggs before. In this way, you can be certain that the donor is well aware of the entire process and there won’t be any confusion later on.

And this is how you can pick the right egg donor for yourself. For more details, contact us, and we will help you with the information.
