IVF or In Vitro Fertilization is one of the most effective assisted reproductive Technology treatments where eggs are combined with sperm outside the body in a lab. This is probably the best option for conception however if you are opting for the treatment then you must know the right way to choose the right donor. Hence it is very important to look at a few factors before you make any decisions as they could affect your future. Choosing the right egg donor is not a simple process just as it seems, you have to consider several factors while choosing a donor such as the quality of the egg as this would determine how your future family happens.

 Unknown vs known egg donor

 Choosing between unknown and known egg donors is the most important decision that you have to make before starting the IVF journey. You have to decide whether to go with any known donor or unknown egg donor in the IVF process. The basic difference between a known egg donor and an unknown donor is very simple: with a known donor, you can judge the involvement and connection that you would have in the egg donor as well as the child’s life. However, in the case of an unknown donor, it is quite different because you will never meet the person personally and the egg donor’s identification is not identified.

 Physical appearance

 Physical appearance is another important factor in the IVF journey. When you look at the childhood and latest picture of the donor you know about the physical traits and figure out whether they would be a good match or not. In the case of known donors, once they are approved by the IVF clinic you have the option to meet them personally and if you are not satisfied with their physical traits you can go for more options.


The clinical history of the donor is also a very important factor as it can affect the future health of the child. This helps in evaluating whether they do not have any genetic disorder or any form of the disease and it can be identified by undergoing some tests or medical screening.


 Hence choosing an owner who has experience in the egg donor process is a good option. However, this does not guarantee any positive results and it is very important to choose the best team of fertility experts when you are at the first step of IVF.
