Choosing an Egg Donor
HRC works with several donor egg agencies and have an extensive selection of egg donors. Egg donors are typically between the ages of 21-32, have a healthy weight, are non-smokers, have no chronic medical or genetic diseases and are physically and emotionally healthy.
In egg donation, patients regard the matching process as being especially important and the recipient couple is walked through this step very carefully. Usually, a large selection of egg donors is available. Recipients are shown childhood and adult photographs of the donors as well as being able to review the donor's IQ and personality test results.
Sometimes couples provide their own donors, which may be a family member or friend. Otherwise information about the identity of the egg donor is confidential.
