A few people have asked what it's like searching for an egg donor.
it's a little like online dating.
You go to an agency or clinic's website and browse their databases....
searching for someone that you connect with.
Which reminds me a lot of online dating services.
Some websites share more information about their donors than others.
But many of the sites include multiple adult photos. Some include photos of the donor as a child.
A few sites even include videos of the donors so that you can get a sense of who these women are.
Below is an example of an egg donor profile summary.
There are 5 other pages to this profile and each page contains the information listed on the left. Family, ob, health, and educational history as well as answers to general questions.
The numbers directly above indicate that this particular donor is a "proven" donor which means that she's cycled before. The results from her previous cycles are shown so that you can see how many eggs were retrieved, fertilized, transferred and frozen in her past cycles. The best indication of future success is past success. Proven donors offer the best odds for a take-home baby over new donors.
