All these things used to be a confusion for me as well. There are so many things you are unsure about while you are on this journey. When I was first diagnosed with infertility it is since then that I have been confused. The reason for that was the doctor, previously I was visiting! He used to use a lot of jargon languages that I myself wasn't sure about. However, recently a few months ago a started process with this new clinic. They have changed everything for me. The doctors are professionals and experienced. they know exactly how to carry a process. Nothing is done in a hurry! Everything is done after it is ensured that things are being done in the perfect manner. The egg donors and even the surrogates are tested here before they are signed up. The surrogates are medically tested to ensure that they are not ill or have a past illness. Good luck to you. I hope your process is a success.
The clinic I am visiting for the process they have a whole database. In that database, there are over 100 plus donors. Each donor's picture along with her biodata is present on their profile. The amount of detail that was given really helped us in making the decision. They have proper criteria through which they choose a donor. They make sure that the person is healthy. They do run a medical test to ensure that. It is because of this proper check and balance that I decided to visit them. I believe it is really important to make sure to visit the right clinic. I researched a lot about them before I visited them as well. So far things are going exceptionally well. They gave us ample time in deciding the donor as well. Hoping for the best. Good luck to you. Sending baby dust your way.
