How do I choose an Egg donor?
Choosing an egg donor is one of the most difficult decisions you will face in the process of IVF. It’s not easy to understand and accept that you have to use another woman’s genetic material, but you can make the decision easier and faster if you see that you have the right candidate as an egg donor.
When we talk about what an egg donor must look like, we are actually talking about his visual portrait. Does the donor have to be exactly the same person as me? Of course not. All future parents have different criteria when choosing an egg donor. Most intended parents say they would prefer an egg donor to have a physical resemblance to their mother, so the baby looks like a mother and father.
On what basis is the donor selected?
It may be important to have a donor egg that is physically beautiful. It is not an unreasonable request because everyone wants their child to be beautiful and brilliant. Someone values the university education of their donors, and someone favors egg donors who are exceptional in athletics, music, science, or other fields.
Also, some future parents require that their donor be of the same faith as they are.
The characteristic you want with an egg donor is unique to you and you should only form it based on your personal priorities and choices. There is no right or wrong way to choose your donor. With so many different factors to consider during the donor selection process, it is important to think about what qualities mean most to you and your partner.
In our experience, women driven by emotions often choose the donor who, on the basis of her photo or video, seems to be the most sympathetic to them and when they feel good energy. Choosing by feel can never be bad.
