Egg Donor Screening
One of the biggest decisions you will make as an intended parent going through an egg donation journey is choosing your egg donor. We at Giving Tree Surrogacy & Egg Donation want to give you the peace of mind in knowing how rigorously we screen all our donors before adding them to our pool. Out of hundreds of applicants, only 4-5% make it into our egg donor pool.
Donor Candidate Screening
All of our donors must be between the ages of 21 and 30, healthy, with a healthy height-weight ratio who meet a body mass index (BMI) of 21-29. Our donors must also have a healthy family history free of genetic disease. We accept donors of all ethnic backgrounds, which provides a diverse selection for intended parents to choose from.
Once a donor applicant comes into our system, we perform extensive screening on them to ensure they have good overall health, good reproductive health, healthy genetic history, and psychological stability. We screen our applicants based on strict guidelines set forth by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM).
Our screening process includes:
- Medical history for donor, siblings, parents, and grandparents
- Donor’s education and work history
- Donor’s hobbies, special talents, and personal characteristics
- Thorough FDA required screening including travel history
