Questions as for donor selection and egg quality?


Hi All! We’re in a wait for our 1st app in Biotexcom on 10th March. For us this is egg donation route. All this time we’ve been looking for info what should be asked as for donor selection and egg quality. I wonder if there might be something added by you, more experienced in DE ladies. Every thought or advice is highly appreciated. Well, here we go. :wink:
Who are the donors if anonymous?
Are donors used legal residents of the country you’re going to apply for treatment in?
What is the age of the donor?
Does the clinic allow you to use the donor you bring into the program or do they require other options?
Are eggs taken from infertility patients?
How many times can a donor be used?
Is the donor tested for the AIDS virus, CMV, hepatitis A and B, chlamydia, venereal disease, syphilis, serum karotyping and blood type and day 3 FSH? Is a drug screen done on the donor?
If you are using a donor from a donor egg matching program, and the donor has been tested by them, will the IVF clinic require additional or duplicate testing at their lab?
Are all eggs from one donor used for one recipient or are the eggs split between recipients? If they are split how are they divided? Is there a primary and secondary recipient?
How many eggs are guaranteed a recipient and, if there are less, is the fee reduced?
How long are medical records kept on the donor? Is the donor aware that, as in adoption, laws may change that could allow the child access to information about the donor at a specific age?
Does the clinic maintain contact with the donor? (I guess this is important if we think we would want to use the donor again in the future.)
Good luck to all of you, lovelies Xxx


Hi, girls! Just wanted to keep you updated. We’ve finally had our appointment in Biotexcom conducted. We had enough time during the app to clarify all the questions I’ve written about before. They turned to be really helpful. In a time flow we’ll also make real acquaintance with our donor. She looks like a kind person, at least from the photos;)
The clinic absolutely met our expectations, so we’re satisfied how this all is going on to us.
Hope you’re well x


Selecting an egg donor is on of the challenging task that a couple faces at the time of infertility treatment. Important considerations while choosing an egg donor are:

  • Prefer known donor than anonymous donor
  • Physical appearance is most important
  • Medical history of the donor and blood type
  • Location of the donor
  • Repeated donor is highly recommended
