Can any woman over the age of 18 be an egg donor?

By Dr. Estefanía Rodríguez Ferradas.
Last Update: 04/30/2020

Any woman over the age of 18 who is interested in donating eggs can contact a reproduction clinic to start the selection process. This process is very demanding and in the end, only women who complete it satisfactorily will be able to donate.

The process of donating eggs begins with a gynecological interview with a study of the medical history and family background. A complete gynecological examination is performed, including an assessment of the ovarian reserve. The next step is a psychological interview and a blood test with a study of hormones, infectious diseases, and genetic diseases.

Once all these stages have been passed and if satisfactory results are obtained, the candidate for egg donation can then make the first egg donation.

This selection process is necessary for the safety of patients who come to fertility centers to undergo egg donation or IVF treatments with donor eggs.
