During the personal interview process, we evaluate potential donors for their level of maturity, personal integrity, personality traits, lifestyle choices, interests, goals, values, relationships, and overall accomplishments. We examine donor motivation, willingness and commitment. This rigorous evaluation of the donor gives you the most complete and meaningful picture possible in your search for the perfect match:
Appearance — In addition to their age and marital status, each candidate provides complete information on their physical characteristics. This includes height, weight, hair color and quality, body type, complexion, birthmarks, moles and dimples. We request childhood, adult and family photos covering three generations (when available). Donors supply other key information, including sexual orientation, ethnicity, and religious practices.
Interests/Aptitudes — Donors rate their math, mechanical, athletic, musical, and artistic aptitude. They list their favorite sports, music, foods, and color, pets, and travel destinations. Multilingual ability, special talents and hobbies are also disclosed.
Motivation to become a donor — Candidates’ motivation for becoming an egg donor are explored. Donors are asked how their family feels about their donation, how their specific culture perceives egg donation, and if they have a personal emotional support system. We makes sure each candidate is completely comfortable with the moral and ethical aspects of their donation, to assure their utmost compliance throughout the process. The fact that most of our donors participate in the program more than once is a direct result of our individualized attention, care, and counseling.
Educational/Professional Background — Each candidate supplies thorough educational and professional background information on themselves. This includes degrees attained, results of intelligence testing such as Grade Point Averages, SAT scores, and other aptitude assessments. Additional intelligence and personality tests are available upon request.
