Egg and Sperm Donation?
- Key Points and Differences with egg and sperm donation.

If you decide on an anonymous egg donor, you can find her through your fertility clinic. You'll usually be able to choose based on her physical characteristics, ethnic background, educational record, and occupation. Most donors are between 21 and 29 years old and have undergone psychological, medical, and genetic screening. Ask how your clinic screens candidates some do less extensive tests and background checks than others. If you choose to use donor embryos, you can either pick unrelated egg and sperm donors or use a frozen embryo donated by a couple that had extras.
