types of egg donation

Egg donation is a good chance for same sex couples to become parents. All fertility clinics provide their clients with egg donation service. Majority of clinics have own database of donors and each couple have ability to choose the donor they want. Also there are different types of egg donation. Think that anonymous donation is the most popular one but I can be wrong. What do you think? Which type of donation is the most popular one? What types of egg donation do you know and what type is the most suitable personally for you?

Anonymous вonation – the recipient parents will typically choose an egg donor who has similar physical and personal characteristics or perhaps particular traits that are appealing for various reasons. The donor’s identity will be kept confidential; any information identifying her will not be given to the recipients. The recipients will, however, be able to view all pertinent information including medical and genetic history, physical description, photographs of the potential donor, and photographs of her child/ren if she’s willing to share them. In an anonymous donation, the recipient will have important information about you, but you will never meet or know each others names.

As far as I know many recipient parents and egg donors choose the anonymous route because they are most comfortable with this type of arrangement for many valid reasons. and to tell the truth i understand their choice. It is not easy process if to look at that from the moral point of view and a lot of IPs prefer to be unknown and to work with anonymous donor.

Also some couples prefer to use semi-open donation. This is an alternative that offers somewhat of a middle-ground solution in choosing anonymous vs. open egg donation. Oftentimes, recipient parents do not feel comfortable with anonymous donation because they would prefer to have the option of contacting the woman who shared her genetics with their children. Additionally, many recipient parents would not feel comfortable with a totally open donation. With a semi-open relationship, the recipient parents have been given the donor’s profile information, but do not necessarily know her last name, address and other detailed information.

Similarly, the egg donor will be given basic information about the recipient parents, but will not necessarily know more specific information as she would in an open donation situation. The recipients and the egg donor may decide to chat via telephone or e-mail, for example, but there will not necessarily be a commitment to stay in touch after the egg donation has occurred. benefit to semi-known vs. anonymous, however, is that enough general information is exchanged so that the recipient parents know their egg donor (and vice versa) on a basic level, and can contact her if they have any questions and such. With a semi-open donation, the egg donor will most likely be informed about the results of the egg retrieval and whether or not a pregnancy occurs.

Open donation – in an open donation arrangement, all parties have agreed to completely disclose information about each other, including last names, addresses, occupations, etc. The IPs and the egg donor, in this case, will sometimes decide to meet in person before the egg retrieval takes place, and if not possible due to logistics (location or scheduling conflicts) there will at least be conversations via email and/or telephone. In this type of arrangement, everyone is mutually interested in maintaining contact potentially throughout the life of the child/ren born via the donation.

types of egg donation

In an anonymous donation, the intended parents and donor never meet, speak, or exchange identifying information. The donor is given a code which will serve as her name and the intended parents will call the donor by this. Intended parents may offer a brief information page to the donor so that she feels comfortable with the couple that she is donating to, but this is up to the intended parents and is not always done. There will be no contact between the intended parents and the donor in this type of arrangement.

An open donation may also occur because the recipient parents have a friend, a sister, or another relative who has offered to help them. Regardless of whether the egg donor is known previously, or whether she is someone the recipient parents have been matched with via fertility clinic/agency, it is most important that all parties have discussed their long-term expectations of the relationship. For example, the donor and recipient parents should discuss who they plan to tell and when. Additionally, and even more importantly, everyone must be on the same page in regards to what the donor’s future relationship will be with the child/ren. There are certainly many issues to consider when going the open donation route, but open (or open/known) egg donation can be a wonderfully positive experience for the recipient parents, the egg donor, and any future children that may result.

In an open donation, the intended parents and donor’s identity will be revealed to one another. They may choose to have a meeting in person, have a phone conversation with their donor or have communication directly via email. This is arranged on a case by case basis.

In a semi-anonymous donation, the intended parents and donor will be given each others first names. Last names will be kept anonymous. If intended parents would like, a phone conversation may be set up with the donor which will be coordinated by the agency so that neither party’s phone number will be given out. Also, email communication can be facilitated through the agency so that both parties can communicate with one another without revealing their personal email address. This is an option that we can work out if desired. So, everything depends on your choice.

I know something about it. Anonymous вonation – the recipient parents will typically choose an egg donor who has similar physical and personal characteristics or perhaps particular traits that are appealing for various reasons.

The recipients will, however, be able to view all pertinent information including medical and genetic history, physical description, photographs of the potential donor, and photographs of her child/ren if she’s willing to share them.
