Egg donation is a fertility treatment where a woman donates her eggs to another woman who is unable to conceive with her own eggs.
Egg donation is commonly used by women who are unable to produce healthy eggs, same-sex male couples, and single men.
The requirements to become an egg donor vary depending on the egg donation agency, but generally include being between 21-32 years old, having a healthy BMI, and passing medical and psychological screening. You can also read more about My Asian Donor Egg Donor Requirements.

The egg donation process involves the egg donor taking medication to stimulate egg production, eggs being retrieved through a minor surgical procedure, and the eggs being fertilized in a laboratory through in vitro fertilization (IVF). The resulting embryos are then transferred into the intended mother or a surrogate.

These include complications from the egg retrieval procedure, side effects from the medication used to stimulate egg production, and emotional risks associated with the process. At My Asian Donor, we only work the the very best industry professionals to guarantee the highest chance of a successful outcome for your egg retrieval cycle.
