How to Donate Eggs
Become an Egg Donor at PREG
Our application and screening process are divided into approximately three steps for you to complete. This is designed to make sure we have healthy women who are committed to become egg donors.
Initial Short Screening Application
To start the process of becoming a donor at PREG, the first step is to complete a short registration form with some basic information. All of our donors must meet this basic screening criteria:
- Age of between 21 and 29 years old
- Weight and height within a healthy range
- A high school diploma or beyond
- Commitment to following instructions, keeping appointments and taking medications as prescribed.
Once this initial application is received, you will receive an email to indicate if you are selected to continue in the application process.
Complete Donor Application
If you are approved to continue with screening, you will be asked to fill out a longer application with your medical history, your family history, personal information and childhood photos. Answer the questions as completely and as accurately as possible.
Once you submit this application, you will receive a call or email from a member of the donor program team to let you know if you are approved to continue the screening process or to get more information about the answers provided.
Egg Donor Screening
If you are approved to continue, the donor nurses will contact you to schedule an appointment for you to come in to the center for a medical and genetic screening. First, you will meet with a member of the donor team to confirm that you understand the donation process and answer any questions you might have with regard to donating. Next, a sample of your blood will be taken to screen for infectious diseases, drug usage, and hormone levels. You will have a vaginal ultrasound to examine your ovaries and look at the number of resting follicles. You will then be scheduled to meet with a psychologist to again confirm that there is a good understanding of the donor process and to assess any psychological issues.
After the screening process has been completed, you’ll be notified shortly to let you know if you’ve been selected to proceed with donation. We must comply with the very strict requirements for donors as directed by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM), the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) and the American College of Genetics and Genomics (ACMG).
Egg Donor Privacy
PREG’s donation process is anonymous, meaning your identity will not be disclosed to the recipient of your eggs.
