Though there are many requirements for becoming an Egg Donor, there is no exact formula for what makes a woman the “perfect” Egg Donor. TeamFSC Egg Donors and Recipient Parents both represent a very diverse group of individuals, with each parent having a unique set of qualities that they are seeking in a donor. The “perfect” Egg Donor for one set of parents could be the exact opposite for another.
Some parents may want an Egg Donor who resembles themselves or their partner. Others may choose to focus more on the talents that the Egg Donor has demonstrated, such as athletic or musical ability. Recipients may also be interested in choosing an Egg Donor with an advanced educational degree, while others are seeking a genetic connection through ethnicity or race.
If you meet the initial requirements for becoming an Egg Donor, but are still unsure of whether you would be a good candidate, we encourage you to contact us to discuss your concerns and allow us an opportunity to answer any questions you may have about the Egg Donation process. We’d love to hear from you!
Applying to Become an Egg Donor
When you apply to become a TeamFSC Egg Donor, being as thorough as possible with your answers will help to ensure a successful match for you and the Recipient Parents. In addition to your health history, you will need to determine what level of contact you’d like with the Recipient Parents. This is a very personal decision, and we are happy to discuss the pros and cons of being an anonymous Egg Donor, a semi-anonymous Egg Donor, or a known/open Egg Donor.
Selecting an Egg Donor
For recipient parents, our Egg Donor database offers an extensive amount of criteria by which you can select your donor. Before browsing the Egg Donor database, it’s important to establish characteristics are most important to you; however, we suggest that you keep an open mind and consider all of the women in our Egg Donor program as a potential match. Oftentimes, Recipient Parents begin with a set of qualifications, only to select a donor who is very different than they initially imagined. Many Recipients find they are happiest with a donor when they feel a connection with her profile; you may find that an Egg Donor’s extended profile sways your decision in a direction that is different than you expected.
