Egg donation

Egg donation: selection of the donor 

In order to select an egg donor a series of criteria are taken into consideration to achieve a physical and immunologic synchronization with the recipient woman. In IVF with egg donation, different psychological studies and clinical examinations are carried out before becoming a donor. Subsequently, the synchronization between the recipient and the donor is obtained by trying to match the phenotypic similarity (race, size, eyes and hair color, etc.) as well as the blood group type and Rh factor. The Spanish legislation establishes the donor’s anonymity except in cases where the child’s health is at risk, the recipient can only receive information about the donor such as blood group and rh.
