If you are searching for a good egg donor to help you become pregnant, here are some tips that will help you in your search.

Four Factors to Consider In Order to Select the Best Egg Donor  Becoming_an_Egg_Donor_2_

  1. 1. Always research potential egg donors with your partner. Selecting your ultimate egg donor – both subjectively and objectively – will be gleaned from the discussion you have together during the process.
  2. 2. Begin with a broad spectrum of characteristics and review every egg donor available within the egg donation program provided by your practitioner. It is very common for intended parents to begin with a selected list of preferred characteristics only to pick a donor that is completely different because there was a quality about themthat they were drawn to.
  3. 3. Find out all the information that is available about the potential egg donor’s entire family. Physical characteristics often skip generations.For example,the trait for height that is passed on to your child may be present in the egg donor’s father or brother.
  4. 4. Thephysical health – not physical beauty – of the egg donor is rapidly becoming the most important factor today’s egg donation recipients focus  A recent five year study has shown that the percentage of recipients who listed intelligenceas a top priority increased from 18 to 55 percent; and those who were seeking athletic ability as a priority in the egg donor selection process increased from 1 to 17 percent.

It is not necessary for you to be exacting when picking the characteristic traits of your future child – he or she will ultimately be a distinctive version of you and your egg donor.

Today’s egg donation recipients are no longer concerned with concealing the fact that they have sought out an egg donor program to achieve parenthood because the modern trend today makes the practice widely acceptable. Because today’s parents-to-be are more focused upon the practical traits that will serve their child’s overall quality of life, it has become a common trend to choose a healthy egg donor that is also intelligent and talented.
