The egg donor psychological evaluation, a component of the egg donor screening process, involves a conversation with a social worker or psychologist to determine your suitability for egg donation. During the evaluation, you will have the opportunity to discuss any questions or concerns you may have about the process, such that you can confirm your decision to donate your eggs.
“The egg donor psychological evaluation will assess your degree of commitment throughout the duration of your cycle.”
During the evaluation, you will participate in a clinical interview with a social worker or psychologist, where you’ll discuss your personal history, your current relationships and life circumstances, as well as your reproductive history and family medical history.
Important questions to consider in advance of your evaluation are the following:
1. What is your primary motivation for donating your eggs?
2. Is your schedule flexible, and are you able to commit to attending medical appointments?
3. What are your thoughts surrounding sharing your genetic material with a child, one whom you may have no contact with through life?
4. Have you discussed egg donation with your family, partner, and friends?
5. If you are not married, but hope to marry one day, will you share with your future spouse your decision to donate?
As there are many components involved in the donation process, the psychological evaluation is an open and welcoming time to talk about the questions and concerns you may have, and will help determine your level of maturity, your understanding of the egg donation process, as well as assess your degree of commitment throughout the duration of the cycle.
