Once you have met with the Medical Director, completed counselling and know that the donor egg program is right for you, you will be required to complete a donor characteristic form.
This form allows you to document the key characteristics of you and your partner (if applicable) e.g. ethnic background, eye, hair and skin colour, height, weight, education/skills, occupation and any other characteristics that are important to you. We recommend when submitting a form, that you also include a photo of yourself.
The team at ManorIVF will then search for a suitable donor matches. Depending on how specific your requirements are, you can expect to receive a choice of at least two donors within a week. You will receive a copy of the donor’s profile which similarly lists their characteristics, some additional information about them and a childhood photo (if available) and an adult photo.
Once you have received the profiles, ManorIVF usually like a yes or a no within three (3) business days. Whilst ManorIVF do an incredible job of matching donors, it is perfectly fine to say that neither donor is suitable and ask them to keep searching until a donor you are more comfortable with becomes available.
The search for a donor may take a little longer if you require a donor with characteristics that are not typical for the northern European population e.g. Asian donors and donors with olive skin. If you would like to know more about our donor egg program please contact our clinic on (02) 9586 3311
