Comprehensive Egg Donor Screening and Evaluation
At Asian Egg Bank, our team of reproductive endocrinologists, psychologists
and genetic counselors carefully reviews an egg donor’s individual
and family histories to ensure that each donor is exceptional according
to our highly selective standards.
Each donor undergoes an extensive medical evaluation that includes blood
tests, a urine drug screening, an ultrasound analysis, and genetic testing.
We also conduct a rigorous psychological assessment.
As per FDA guidelines, donors are initially screened for infectious diseases,
and undergo infectious disease testing again 30 days prior to egg retrieval.
In addition, donors are tested for reproductive hormone levels in order
to evaluate their ovarian egg reserve. The genetic screening includes
tests for cystic fibrosis, spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), Fragile X, Tay
Sachs, and other genetic abnormalities.
If these test results are normal, egg donors undergo a thorough psychological
evaluation with a licensed professional to assess their mental health.
They also participate in a genetic counseling session with a genetic counselor
to review their family medical history.
