Still thinking about becoming an egg donor? Ask yourself a few questions.
Am I young enough to donate eggs? You are born with all the eggs you will ever have. Younger eggs tend to be of better quality than older eggs. It is also important to be mature enough to make the serious decision of donating your eggs. That means we’d like to talk with you further if you are between 18 and 30.
Am I “in shape?” Having a healthy body mass index (BMI) helps all of your body’s systems work better, including your reproductive system. You can calculate your BMI here.
Do I pass on smoking, recreational drugs, and heavy alcohol use? Recreational use of these substances can lower the quality of your eggs, sometimes even permanently.
Am I a responsible person and able to follow through on commitments? Infertility can be a devastating diagnosis for our patients. Donor eggs can make something that seems impossible – possible. However it can also be emotionally and financially stressful for patients. It is critical for an egg donor to be sensitive to these issues.
