What types of screening tests do they perform to check the health of

the donors? ASRM recommends initial and follow-up testing for both anonymous and known donors. This includes:

• Complete medical history (including donor's family, personal, and sexual history)

• Physical exam

• Testing for STDs (must be negative within 30 days before egg donation)

• Routine blood work (such as blood type)

• Genetic testing that is ethnically based (for example, cystic fibrosis for those of Caucasian descent)
