Egg donation

Details the attempt made by clinics to match donors and recipients in egg donation.

Matching of donor with recipient

Although clinics endavour to match donors and recipients as closely as possible - there is no guarantee they will be perfect copies!

An infertility clinic will try and match the donor and recipients ethnic background and physical characteristics such as eye colour, height and weight, build and complexion as closely as possible. However, the recipient's couple will be advised that any matching cannot be guaranteed.

Because of the shortage of alutistic donors, many IVF centers routinely match two recipients to each altruistic donor. Eggs are shared equally between the two recipients provided that enough eggs are collected to split.
