So you need an Egg Donor? Make sure you have ALL the FACTS! The effective and accurate screening of an egg donor is probably the most important criteria in your choice of an egg donor. Admittedly age, height, hair and eye colour are all important in matching a donor to your specifications, but don’t let that be all you concern yourself with, as you could in the future regret that you did not search more deeply in your selection. As a recipient of egg donation one may not realise the value of having ALL the facts. Is your donor adopted? Does she have allergies? Is she a carrier of Tay-Sachs, Sickle Cell, Thalassemia or Cystic Fibrosis disease? Is there any history of cancer in her paternal or maternal grandparents? Does anyone in her family suffer from Alzheimer’s Disease, a Cleft Palate, Epilepsy or Muscular Dystrophy? The list of conditions for which donors should be screened is endless and critical in your choice of a donor.
