BMI and egg donation age aren’t the only factors that can disqualify potential candidates. Although we wish we could accept every enthusiastic candidate, there are several egg donation disqualifications. These disqualifications were put into place to protect all involved parties, including you.
Many egg donation disqualifications are flexible with time. For instance, women are not eligible to become egg donors when they are breastfeeding, but they can once their baby has been weaned. Conversely, certain disqualifiers are fixed and automatically disqualify potential donors. Candidates who have been diagnosed with HIV, AIDS, or any genetically transmitted disease are not eligible to become egg donors. The disqualification is in place to protect the woman who will be receiving the eggs, as well as her baby, from a potential infectious transmission.
