To donate eggs, your BMI must be within a healthy range according to guidelines set by the American Society for Reproductive Medicine. Even if it is not the most accurate scale, it does help to estimate a healthy weight-height distribution. In order to compensate for its slight discrepancy, we do accept donors that are considered slightly overweight according to the BMI scale. The reason we have to adhere to these guidelines is that if your BMI is high, your natural fertility may be affected, making the process of egg donation too risky for you. You may not respond well to the necessary ovarian stimulation needed for egg donation. It’s our responsibility to make sure all our Egg Donors are healthy and well enough to donate eggs. Your safety is our main concern which is why these guidelines are in place.
