Egg Donor Q&A: Matching Recipients and Donors

by Katherine Benardo

How are egg donors matched with recipients at your agency?

At this current stage in technology, donor eggs are not frozen for later use. So a specific recipient has to choose you before you can donate.

When working with our egg donation agency, a recipient will select you from the donor database, and only then will you begin your medical screening. You may work with a local clinic or one in a different city, if that is convenient for you.

Before you start your medications, you will be presented with an egg donor contract and provided an attorney to review its terms with you (the clinic will present you with a consent form as well).
