Elite Fertility Solutions offers enhanced and comprehensive egg donor screening
Comprehensive egg donor screening is one of the most unique aspects of our Southern California egg donation agency. We know that egg donation can be an overwhelming process, so our team strives to give you peace of mind as you select a donor. Our enhanced screening ensures that you are selecting a donor from a prescreened pool of highly qualified and diverse women.
What does our comprehensive egg donor screening look like?
Our Southern California egg donation experts personally meet with each potential donor to review the process in detail. We want to make sure each woman completely understands the commitment she is making and is interested in egg donation for the right reasons. We will also review her personal and family medical history.
The next step of our comprehensive egg donor screening is having the woman meet with a board certified reproductive endocrinologist, or fertility doctor. This doctor will perform an FDA physical and transvaginal ultrasound on the woman to ensure she is healthy and has no fertility issues.
We also have each donor meet with a therapist who specializes in third party reproduction. The goal is to ensure the egg donor understands the short-term and long-term implications of being a donor. The therapist also reviews the woman’s family history and social situation to ensure she has adequate support systems in place. The therapist’s report will be available for all intended parents to review on our website.
Our team does all this screening before we even put a donor on our website. Most agencies do not require their donors to see a therapist or get a physical before intended parents select them. As a result, these agencies pass these costs along to the intended parents. If the egg donor doesn’t work out, the intended parents absorb the cost for that donor and the next one they select. Elite Fertility Solutions doesn’t believe that’s right, so we commit to doing thorough prescreening.
Reviewing egg donor profiles at Elite Fertility Solutions
When we accept a donor into our program, we have her complete a 28-page questionnaire in her own handwriting. She also provides a variety of photos to show what she looks like from birth to present day. This information, together with the therapist’s report makes up the donor’s profile on our website. There is no charge for seeing multiple donor profiles at our Southern California egg donation center.
Once you select an egg donor, we will use part of your agency fee to do FDA bloodwork, universal carrier screening and drug testing. If any of this screening comes back abnormal, we will find another donor for you for no additional cost.
These are just a few of the ways that Elite Fertility Solutions goes above and beyond with comprehensive egg donor screening to support intended parents on the path to parenthood. Contact us to learn more about our egg donation program and how we can help you grow your family.
