How to Choose the Best Egg Donor Agency in Mexico 


Complications with ovulation can cause infertility in many women. Egg donation is a booming fertility treatment that can help with these issues, whether they’re caused by premature menopause, poor egg quality or quantity due to an advanced age, or other genetic problems related to egg production. Despite the high success rate in this birth procedure, it’s tough for any woman to adjust to the fact that her eggs will not be used.

Mexico has pioneered research into reproductive treatments and is the proud host of many intended parents who use surrogacy as a means of reproduction. Egg donations in Mexico involve the removal of the eggs from the donor through surgery, followed by IVF (In Vitro Fertilization) of the donated egg, and finally transfer of the developing embryo to the recipient’s uterus.

The advanced fertility clinics of Mexico are staffed by experienced doctors, technicians, and specialists. Mexico provides ideal conditions for the intended parents and the egg donor as well. Fertility clinics in Mexico provide the highest degree of compassion and committed care to both recipients and egg donors.

IVF egg donation cost in Mexico is remarkably lower than that of the United States and Canada. This has been made possible by Mexico’s cost-effective and highly efficient health care system which invites millions of intended couples and single parents each year for successful IVF treatments.


How to find an egg donor

The hardest decision for intended parents is selecting the egg donor. There are multiple factors to be considered during the process of donor selection. Couples should carefully consider the factors and qualities that matter them the most.

There are thousands of egg donors available in Mexico. You need an experienced, professional and reputable egg donation agency in this situation. Your fertility doctor may recommend a few agencies to you, but you can also find many leads over the internet. But how can someone be sure of the reputation of the egg donation agency? It’s vital to find a reputable egg donation agency and an ideal egg donor to ensure a successful procedure.

Like in any other business, egg donation agencies range from horrible, sub-par institutions to fantastic, ethical businesses. Some agencies are engaged in mass production, while others provide one-to-one care to each case. The first step is finding the right egg donation agency and then allowing them to help you with finding the right donor.

Here is a list of the most important information that you need to collect before signing up to any egg donor agency:

  1. Ask the agency to show you their portfolio and any credentials of the donors. Enquire about the donor’s health history, including their family medical history. Know about the physical attributes of the donor, her education including GPA and SAT scores, hobbies, and other interests. Make sure the donor agency is transparent with you especially regarding the donor’s family medical history, which is very important to be aware of in case of potential genetic risks.
  2. Inquire about the psychological evaluation of the egg donor, and whether one has been undertaken or not.
  3. Collect information about the payouts of the donors by the donor agency. High paid donors are likely to be cared for far better than low paid ones, and is a good way of avoiding unethical “egg farms.”
  4. Find out how long the agency has been in the market. Agencies with long business histories are often more credible and accountable than new startups.
  5. Ask the donor agency to show you their testimonials and past recipient records
  6. Request the donor agency to let you select the donor from their database. It will give you the opportunity to view their database and find an egg donor with your preferred characteristics.
  7. It is also essential to find out about the agency’s fees in detail as this will make a side-by-side comparison of different agencies easy.
  8. Make sure that the agency provides you with another donor if the first donor does not result in success within the first two weeks. You need to sign a contract that includes the fact that the agency does not charge you in full with no guarantee, and also that they will continue to help you find a donor for you until it is successful.
  9. Discuss in detail the retainer agreement with the agency, if they have any. The retainer agreement obliges the agency to assist you throughout the donation cycle.
  10. Ask the agency to provide you with the legal contract after consulting a qualified attorney. It is never advised to go for an agency that does not involve legal procedures to draft the contract between the intended parents and the egg donor.

The success of the pregnancy depends upon multiple high-quality embryos and repeated embryo transfer. High-quality embryos give greater chances of success. Typically it takes 12 to 14 egg donations to develop 10 to 12 viable embryos. Out of these embryos, only 2 to 4 will be of the required quality. The objective of donor agencies is to develop as many high-quality embryos as possible in their banks. The egg donor you choose should, therefore, be capable of providing more than 14 eggs for the IVF procedure. Production of less than 14 embryos might mean you require significantly more procedures than otherwise.

A young and fertile donor with a good fertility history can produce up to 20 or more eggs in each donation process and 4 to 5 attempts are enough for an eventual successful pregnancy. It’s important for an intended parent to work closely with the donor agency and to know about the fertility history of the candidate, including age and previous records of pregnancy.

New Life Mexico has an excellent working relationship with many egg donation agencies. These are a few of the things that you need to know about the donor before finalizing the contract with her.

  1. Know about the donor’s egg donation history and retrieving records.
  2. Ask her questions about her last egg donation. The last egg donation should be before a minimum period of 3 to 4 months.
  3. See her actual age proof and details of her egg fertility. Women in their early 20s have the best donation results, so it’s wise to go for younger donors to achieve best results.
  4. Know as much possible about the donor’s family history and medical records. It matters a lot and can have significant long-term effects on your child. Egg donor agencies take good care of this clause and bring to you the donor with best family medical records. Still, it’s your responsibility to bring out as much information as possible during your sessions with the donor.
  5. Ensure her culture, education and responsible nature. Make sure it matches with yours. Evaluate the qualities that you want in your child and confirm whether those are present in the donor.

Last but not the least, you should shortlist at least 4 to 5 donors and proceed with the evaluation process. Women’s fertility differs from month to month, so someone who is not a great choice this month can be an excellent option in the next month.

We hope this information will prove to be helpful. Remember, a correct decision in choosing the right egg donation agency is your first step in a long and highly involved reproduction process.
