Finding the Right Egg Donor Agency

When you know that an egg donor is needed in order to help build your family, the first step is to decide where the donated egg(s) will come from. If you are working with a known or directed egg donor (someone you already know, like a family member or a close friend), then the process will be different — you and the donor will work directly with a fertility clinic to begin the medical screenings before the retrieval procedure. If you are using an anonymous egg donor, then you will need to select one from an agency’s database.

Finding the right egg donor agency can seem tricky. Depending on your location, there may be a number of options available to you, and the research process can feel overwhelming. Fortunately, there are ways to make finding an egg donor agency easier, without the stress and worry that could accompany your research. We’ve provided a number of questions that you can ask a perspective egg donor agency.

Is your agency inclusive?
Modern family building should extend to all couples and individuals. Asking whether an egg donor agency is inclusive will confirm that they offer services to couples, including LGBTQ and single parents.

Do you work with international intended parents?
Many future parents turn to egg donor agencies in countries that offer favorable fertility laws as well as modern medical services, and that includes the United States. Knowing whether the agency you’d like to work with offers international egg donation services before you register for their database can save you time and energy.

How large is your donor database?
The size of an egg donor database can vary as donors enter and leave donation programs, but your agency should be able to provide you with an accurate estimate when this information is requested. For example, at this time, Egg Donor America offers prospective parents over 600 egg donor candidates to consider.

Will we have our own case manager?
Case managers help guide prospective parents through the egg donation process. They provide an important support system that makes the process straightforward and less stressful for future parents and donors alike.

Do you offer educational resources?
Even when you’ve found the agency you’d like to work with, you will still likely want to continue your research about the egg donation process along the way. This is why it’s important for prospective parents to be able to turn to resources they can trust, including the agency’s blog, which should provide up-to-date information on egg donation for both intended parents and donors.
