As a newly approved egg donor candidate who has recently enrolled with our egg donor program, we understand you are excited to help a hopeful parent and eager to be matched. You might even be wondering what steps might increase your chances of being matched.
In truth, the time it takes to be matched will vary. Over the years, we’ve been involved with egg donation cycles where egg donors are matched within just a few short days of being added to the egg donor database. On the other hand, we’ve been involved with cycles where a match has taken several months, or even longer.
Because we’re sure that you’re wondering how to increase your chances of being matched with the perfect hopeful parents, we’d like to give you some pointers to help you increase the chance of being matched quickly.
1. Submit a variety of adult photos, and take the time to gather up childhood photos. Most hopeful parents explain to us they chose someone who resembled them and their family. To learn more about why the photograph section of your egg donor application is an important part of the egg donor application, read our related article HERE, or you may view a well-compiled photograph portfolio HERE.
2. Within your egg donor application, write a complete and thoughtful narrative section, sharing your goals, aspirations, hobbies, and dreams. Hopeful parents share with us time and again that it was something an egg donor wrote in the narrative section that helped them in finding the perfect egg donor candidate. To learn more about why the personal narrative section is an important part of your egg donor application, read our related article HERE, or to view a well-written narrative section, click HERE.
3. Regularly touch bases with our office, and keep your egg donor portfolio, including your contact information, current and up-to-date. When we contact you, please return our phone call and/or email promptly. We might be working with a hopeful parent who wants to begin the process quickly, and even waiting a couple of days to get back in touch with us might mean the difference between a hopeful parent selecting you or choosing to match with someone else. In addition, a prompt response assures a hopeful parent of your level of maturity and responsibility, two traits important in the egg donation process (read more about desired egg donor personality traits HERE).
Overall, we want to help you increase your chances of being matched, and specifically, in matching you with the perfect hopeful parent to begin your journey. If you have questions about the matching process, or want to talk further about your egg donor portfolio and how to ensure it stands out, contact our office today.
