Your Story of You: Writing Your Egg Donor Profile & What to Include

This information was correct at the time of publishing. It may not reflect our current practices.

Writing your egg donor profile is one of the most personal and exciting parts of the egg donation process. It’s where you get to tell potential recipients of your eggs all about you as a person.

But what are you meant to write? Your profile is designed to help someone decide if you’re the egg donor for them. It’s your story of ‘you’, entirely in your own words.

You’ll be invited to write your egg donor profile once we’ve carried out all of the required screening tests.

What can go into your egg donor profile

There are lots of great details you can include in your egg donor profile, which will give those who are looking for an egg donor a good insight into who you are and whether you’re a match for them. Such as:

  • About your family – do you have children, a partner, brothers or sisters
  • Why you decided to become an egg donor
  • What you hope for someone who uses your eggs
  • What you do for a living and why you chose this career
  • Your outlook on life
  • What kind of a person you are
  • A goodwill message to a donor-conceived child – this is important to include as it may be given to a child one day when parents explain genetic origins

All the basic information about you – such as height, weight, age, hair and eye colour are already automatically included in your profile.

What can’t go into an egg donor profile

Although it’s tempting to go into a lot of detail to help someone make their choice, there are some things you can’t include in your egg donor profile.

We’re not allowed to include any information in your profile that could identify who you are, which may include:

  • Information about where you work
  • The area you live
  • Photographs (at any age)
  • Date of birth

Anonymity is intact between egg donor and recipient – it’s only donor-conceived children born through your eggs that have the right to find out who you are, if they wish to, when they turn 18 years old.

Support when writing your profile

Writing your egg donor profile can sometimes be difficult,  but don’t worry, we’re here to help guide you if you’re not sure what to say.

Once you’re happy with your egg donor profile, you’ll be able to be matched with potential recipient patients who have been looking for an egg donor just like you.
