Egg Donor Application
Apply to Become an Egg Donor with MyEggBank
Our application and screening process is divided into 3 steps that can take as little as 6 weeks for you to complete and is designed to ensure we attract committed, healthy women to become egg donors.
1. Short Application
To start the process of becoming a donor with MyEggBank, you first fill out a short registration form with basic information. All of our donors must meet certain basic criteria to be considered:
- Age of between 21 and 33 years old
- Weight and height within a healthy range
- Some education beyond the high school level
- A commitment to the appointments and testing required to become a donor
Upon submission of this short application, you will promptly receive an email to indicate if you are selected to continue in the application process.
2. Long Application
If you are approved to continue, you will be asked to fill out a longer application form with your medical history, your family history, personal essays and childhood photos. We understand some of these questions may be difficult to answer, but this form is crucial to helping us get to know you better.
Once you submit this application, you will receive a call or email from a member of the donor program team to let you know if you are approved to continue. A coordinator may also contact you to ask clarifying questions and help you complete the application.
Egg Donor Screening
3. Clinical Screening Visit(s)
If you are approved to continue, the donor team will schedule an appointment for you to come in to the center for a medical and genetic screening. First, you will meet with a member of the donor team to confirm that you understand the donation process and are committed to completing it. Then, a nurse will take your blood to screen for infectious diseases, drug usage, and hormone levels. You will meet with a genetic counselor to walk through your family history. And, finally, a doctor, or other clinician, will conduct a general physical, including a vaginal ultrasound, to assess your overall physical and reproductive health.
You may meet with a psychological counselor at this appointment, or be scheduled for a follow-up visit, depending on your center. This meeting is to gauge your understanding of the donor commitment and overall psychological stability.
You will find out within 2 weeks whether you have been selected to become a donor following the results of these tests. Unfortunately, the majority of applicants are not invited to continue on to become donors. In many cases, this is for the health and safety of the applicant and also to comply with requirements for donors set by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM), the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) and the American College of Genetics and Genomics (ACMG).
