How Do I Choose An Egg Donor? 

Dr. Guy Ringler of California Fertility Partners explains the process of choosing the right egg donor for your surrogacy journey.

How do I find an egg donor that's right for me?

The first step would to be to make a list of the criteria that are most important to you, this will help you narrow down candidates, until you have found that individual. The bottom line is you're going to have a gut reaction in some way to her. It's important to find that individual that jumps out of the page for you. She's providing that the genes for your children, after all! Once you decide she's the one, it is important to consider her egg quality as that has a large impact on the overall success rate. She's going to need to pass your clinic's medical criteria. Any good clinic will not let you choose a donor who's not going to be a good match.

When choosing a donor you need to find someone that you really like the overall picture. You like her appearance, her family history, or perhaps you like her educational level. Maybe there's something such as an interest she has that aligns with one of yours. Whatever it is it's important to keep looking until you find that person. Your clinic or agency should be there for you, to help you choose a donor that is going to be right for you.
