Egg Donor Profiles: Basic or Extended

    Are you happy with knowing just basic information or would you like a detailed description of your egg donor? At Cryos you can choose between donors with a Basic Profile or an Extended Profile. 


    All egg donors at Cryos either have a Basic Profile or an Extended Profile. The donor herself decides whether to have a Basic or an Extended Profile, and the difference is the level of information accessible about the donor. 

    In our free Donor Search you can access all donors and filter the search results to see only Basic Profiles or Extended Profiles. If you would like to know as much as possible, including pictures, her voice, donor motivation and life experiences, you should look for a donor with an Extended Profile. If you, on the other hand, are perfectly happy knowing just basic information like ethnicity, hair colour and profession, an egg donor with a Basic Profile may be the right choice for you. Here we help you understand the difference between the two profile types.

    Egg donors with a Basic Profile

    The information in the Basic Profiles is limited to a few physical characteristics and her education and/or profession at the time of donation.  

    Reasons for choosing a Basic Profile could be:

    • You prefer to know as little as possible about the donor. 
    • You consider the basic information as sufficient for you to choose a donor. 
    • You want to keep expenses at a minimum. 

    Donors with a Basic Profile are shown in our Donor Search with a number such as 852, 6015 or 14308.
    Both ID Release and Non-ID Release Donors can have a Basic Profile.

    Egg donors with an Extended Profile

    The Extended Donor Profiles give you a thorough description of the egg donors. In these profiles the donor has answered several questions regarding her interests, life experiences, family background and more, to give you a better idea of her personality. With an Extended Profile, you also get to see childhood pictures of the egg donor, hear her voice and read a handwritten message.

    Egg donors with an Extended Profile are registered in our Donor Search under a fictitious name such as JULIE, ANNA or MIKO. Be aware that this is not the real name of the donor.

    An Extended Profile provides you with:

    • Detailed information about physical and personality traits as a basis for your choice of donor.
    • A photo of the egg donor which can help you find a donor who looks like you or your partner.
    • The opportunity to enrich the conversation you have with your child about his or her genetic origin.

    Furthermore, some of the ID Release Donors with Extended Profiles have provided photos of themselves as an adult. You can read more about Adult Photos here.
