Donor Genetic Screening
For patient(s) who need to use an egg donor to create or expand their family, medical scrutiny is performed on the chosen egg donor before she can proceed with the IVF cycle. The medical screening of egg donors is an important process. Here at the PFC Egg Donor Agency, we proceed with an extensive screening process PRIOR to allowing the egg donor to become eligible for choosing by the intended parent(s). This extensive screening is performed to help determine and identify any medical factors which may disqualify the donor, or to identify information which may require additional testing prior to determining donor eligibility. At PFC, our philosophy is that we want to identify any issues prior to intended parents choosing the donor, so that the risk of identifying medical issues with the donor after the start of the IVF cycle is minimized, and the risk of canceling the cycle is much reduced. Medical screening for the donor includes an extensive review of her personal and family medical history, physical exam and pelvic ultrasound, psychological evaluation (in-person visit with our MFT Peggy Orlin),
