How To Qualify To Become an Egg Donor in NYC

Becoming an egg donor is a selfless way of helping couples achieve their goal of parenthood.  While many women consider donating their eggs, many are unsure of the process for egg donation or what is required to become an egg donor.  
There are a number of qualifications to become a donor. Our screening process allows us to determine if each potential donor is a good fit for the program. 
Basic qualifications in order to become an egg donor include:
  • Being aged between 18 and 28 years old.  Women of Jewish decent may be up to 30 years old and still be eligible for donation.
  • Having a valid social security number and having the legal right to work and live in the United States.
  • Holding a high school diploma or GED, although college coursework is preferred.
  • Being free of drug use and smoke free.
  • Measuring proportionately based on height and having a pleasing appearance.
  • A clean medical history with no previous STDs.  This includes STDs that were previously diagnosed and successfully treated.
  • Stable mental state without the use of mood altering medication.
  • Having no tattoos, piercings or acupuncture within the past 12 months.
  • Dedicated to following the medication regimen as prescribed.

Additional Screening

In addition to the basic qualifications, all potential donors must pass a background check and medical testing.  Furthermore, all potential donors must undergo a genetic screening.  We want to provide our clients with only the highest quality eggs.  This is only possible through a stringent screening process.

Donation Cycle

All egg donors receive fertility medication to produce a large quantity of eggs.  To accomplish this, donors are required to inject themselves daily with fertility medication.  Additionally, testing is done several times a week to monitor how your body is responding to the medication.   Once the eggs have reached the desired maturity, donors are prescribed an additional medication to promote and time ovulation.  After they are harvested, the eggs are checked for quality, with the healthiest eggs flash frozen for future use.
