There continue to be more and more choices for egg donors. Thanks to Janine, from Visit and Care, for providing the following summary of options (July 2010):
Dr Shivani SCI:
Offers two groups of egg donors. A list donors are University graduates or hold a Masters degree and charge an extra fee. D list donors are High school educated or uneducated donors. She can offer Hindu , Muslim and Christian donors for those that have specifications and will send photos of the donors to Intended Parents to select from.
She also works with Global Egg Donors to offer Caucasian, Asian and African American egg donors who will travel to India. Additionally she will coordinate with New Life Clinic in Ukraine and Georgia for Caucasian egg donors. These donors can be viewed on line with a password. She accepts frozen shipped Embryos and Semen- IP's need to organise the shipping and she will provide all the necessary documentation.
Have also introduced 2 categories of egg donors. Donors with high education again charge an additional fee. They will also coordinate with New Life Ukraine and Georgia for Caucasian egg donors. Photos of the donors are sent to IP's and they also offer Christian, Muslim and Hindu donors. Frozen Embryos and Sperm can be shipped and she will coordinate this for IP's with their cryoshipping service.
Dr Patel prefers to match IP's with a donor available in their time frame with a matching blood group. If the donor agrees, she will send the donors photo to the IP's. If this is not possible, she will send the donor's details. Some donors are available with higher education and she also has a choice of religious groups. Caucasian egg donors are coordinated with New Life. She cannot accept shipped Embryos or Sperm.
Dr Kadam, Corion:
She has donors with Higher education available as well as various religious groups. Photos of the donors can be sent to IP's to select from and again she coordinates with New Life for Caucasian donors. Frozen Embryos and Sperm can be shipped and she will coordinate this for IP's with their cryoshipping service.
All the clinics test and screen the donors and will provide IP's with copies of their medical reports as well as family history details and details of any previous cycles.
