Known Egg Donation

A known donor or “directed egg donor” is an egg donor that is known to the intended parents.

Often time this is a sister of a patient, close relative or friend. When using a known donor, the nurse coordinators at USC will arrange for all the necessary screening. Directed egg donors need to undergo blood tests, medical evaluation, fertility evaluation, genetic screening and psychological screening. In addition, a lawyer specializing in reproductive law will need to be consulted.
