Our egg donor qualifications allow us to select the highest-quality donors
Ovation® Donor Services’ egg donor qualifications help us to ensure that you’re a good candidate for egg donation. Meeting these qualifications is an important first step when considering becoming an egg donor, as these qualifications are initial indicators that you will be able to provide hopeful parents with the best chance of building their family.
Before applying to become an egg donor, look over our egg donor qualifications
These qualifications have been carefully created by our expert team to ensure donor recipients have the best chance of success.
- Women aged between 21 and 29. Age affects ovarian reserve, a critical factor in determining egg quality and pregnancy success.
- Healthy BMI. Donors must be in the normal weight range for their height. (Here’s a BMI calculator.)
- Detailed personal and family medical history. A donor’s genetics, and certain health conditions experienced by her or her biological family, affect her ability to donate her eggs. We require at least 3 generations of family health history.
- Commitment and reliability. Egg donation is an incredibly rewarding process that requires donors to be responsible and proactive.
- Healthy lifestyle. Donors should lead a healthy lifestyle:
- No nicotine use in the past 12 months
- No illicit drugs
- No heavy alcohol consumption
