About Our Egg Donors

There are two types of egg donors, anonymous and non-anonymous
If the egg donor agrees to meet the recipient upon request, we will arrange for the meeting. However, the majority of our Intended Parents and egg donors wish to remain anonymous.

Our Egg Donors are between the ages of 19-32 years old.

Acceptable donors may be single or married, some have either had pregnancies or have been a previous donor, they may be students or working, but they all must have clean medical and psychological backgrounds and have other attractive qualifications.

Every potential donor fills out a detailed questionnaire which contains extensive information on their medical and psychological histories, physical characteristics of both themselves and their family, their motivation to becoming an egg donor, educational background, and their personal habits and interests.

When selecting suitable egg donor candidates, Reproductive Solutions looks for these main characteristics: healthy medical background, no genetic abnormalities, and psychological stability. The Director meets and interviews all our egg donors prior to adding them to our active egg donor list.

Once the recipient has had a chance to consult with Mirna Navas and has selected a donor, Reproductive Solutions will act as the liaison between your egg donor and your IVF physician, psychologist, genetic counselor and attorney.

We will help you and your donor complete the required steps which will allow you to move forward.
These steps include: egg donors undergo psychological, genetic and medical screening.

The Egg Donors Process

The Egg Donor Process is divided into two parts: screening and treatment.

The egg donors undergo psychological, genetic and medical screening.
The psychological screening that all egg donors undergo is to evaluate their motivation and suitability as well as to look for possible inherited psychological disorders.

The egg donors are required to speak with a genetic counselor and be genetically tested per the recommendation of your physician. Your physician will help you decide what genetic tests are necessary.

Once the psychological and genetic screening has been completed for your egg donor, your physician will screen the egg donor to make sure she is healthy. The doctor will perform an ultrasound and order various hormone measurements to estimate the egg donor’s ovarian response to the stimulation protocol.

In addition, the doctor will run blood tests for infectious diseases, genetic tests and drug screen. After the egg donor is medically, legally and financially cleared, she may begin the egg donation process which includes undergoing ovulatory stimulation. The menstrual cycles of the egg donor and the Intended Mom or of the Surrogate will be synchronized, often using birth control pills.
The egg donors can take a variety of different fertility medication depending on the donor and the treating physician. The Intended Mother or Surrogate receives estrogen to build up the uterine lining and when close to the egg retrieval, progesterone is given to the recipient.
Most donors start on stimulation medication on their second day of their menstrual period. The stimulation medication prescribed to the egg donor will vary from physician to physician.

Generally the egg donor will take the stimulation hormones anywhere from 9 to 12 days. The egg retrieval is done at the doctor’s office while the egg donor is in a twilight sleep induced by anesthesia. An embryo will be transferred into the Intended Mother or of Surrogate’s uterus.
Your doctor may suggest to freeze unused embryos of high quality for future use.
For donors or surrogates who will need to travel out of town to have the egg retrieval or for the embryo transfer, the Intended Parent(s) are responsible to pay all expenses, including travel expenses for the egg or for the surrogate and a companion.
