Competition between candidates
Egg donorship is used in the course of infertility treatment in cases when a female patient’s ovarian reserve is depleted (during menopause, for example), or the oocytes are of poor quality and cannot be used in an IVF cycle. As in the case of a surrogate mother search there are several solutions to this problem.
For example, a relative or an acquaintance can donate an egg. Some married couples try to look for oocyte donors in advertisements. However, this option is not only time-consuming but also rather risky. Donors are subject to certain requirements, and women, who offer their services in the area of egg donorship, do not always meet those. Consequently, as a general rule, actions such as placing an ad in search of an oocyte donor on your own or responding to existing offers do not produce the desired result.
Finally, you can contact one of the IVF clinics. Despite the fact that egg donorship service is theoretically provided in many medical facilities, virtually all of them lack an extensive active database of medically examined oocyte donors, and a recipient is placed on the so-called waiting list.
We provide an oocyte donor questionnaire that contains a complete description of the woman donor, including information about her children and direct relatives. In addition, you will be able to view several photographs of an egg donor.
