Throughout the process, both you and your egg donor will be guided by our team of experienced professionals. As the main liaison between you, your donor, physician, nurse coordinator, attorney and other participating professionals, our Match Managers provide the unparalleled support and resources critical to success.
“From the initial informative meeting with Alicia to the detailed correspondence with Jennifer, I have truly felt supported and well informed every step of the way. They are true and compassionate professionals and I am so fortunate to have been working with them throughout this process. They have made this difficult journey much easier, and for that I am grateful.”
How do you screen your eggs donors?
Donors initially meet with our intake team to be fully educated about the egg donation process and the commitment required. Only a small percentage of donors who apply to the program are chosen to go through the screening process. As an agency we require a recent PAP smear result on file and a gynecologist’s clearance letter if needed. Once matched, ConceiveAbilities performs a three-point background check before the donor meets with a mental health professional who conducts a psychological evaluation and administers standardized testing. The donor is then ready for medical screening at your fertility clinic. Learn more about our egg donor screening process.
How do you verify the egg donor’s information?
Egg donor information is mostly self-reported, with the exception of psychological and medical testing performed after being selected from the database. It is difficult to verify additional information; however, if something is of critical importance to the success of the match with Intended Parents, ConceiveAbilities can seek to verify additional details. During the psychological evaluation, donors are administered a standardized personality test to provide some information regarding their level of transparency, honesty and compliance with the process.
How do I view the egg donors on your database?
Our egg donor database can be accessed directly from the ConceiveAbilities website where you will register and provide some basic information. You will create your own password protected account and then be able to view our tailored roster of over 100 exceptional egg donors.
What are the advantages of a live egg donor cycle vs. using frozen eggs from an egg bank?
Using a live donor ensures that all of the eggs retrieved will be available to you (for additional attempts at pregnancy and for siblings), whereas you are limited to the number you purchase from an egg bank and will rarely have access to the same donor for a genetic sibling. Also, success rates are far better with a fresh cycle. Working with a live donor allows you to obtain additional information from her, if necessary, and enables you to customize your legal agreement for future protections.
Do you work with any intended parents and is there a screening process?
As an agency committed to the highest standards and most ethical practices in the industry, our foundation is rooted in one simple belief: everyone deserves a family. For almost two decades, we have helped thousands from all over the world achieve their family dreams. We are modern family advocates, dedicated to customizing a unique strategy for every client.
ConceiveAbilities provides the most expert, extensive and reassuring family-building process possible for everyone that is fully committed to the endeavor. We do require our clients to engage in a consult with a psychologist to discuss the emotional dynamic of third party-reproduction, and egg donation clients must also undergo a background check.
Why choose ConceiveAbilities over other egg donor agencies?

There are many well-intentioned yet inexperienced egg donor agencies that claim to have the network necessary to manage donor egg engagements. Their inexperience and lack of resources can cost parents time, anxiety and financial resources, particularly when the professionals needed for the engagement are out-sourced.
