Not all women can donate their eggs. Every clinic has their different criteria for this.
Commonly, egg donors must be a certain age, usually 21, and be no more than 35. When someone is enrolling for egg donation program then she will undergo prescribed medical investigation. If everything comes back as per the expectations then clinic will allow her to move further for next step.
If you apply to become an egg donor you may have may medical visits before you are accepted to donate your eggs. These visits will include a physical and gynecological exam, a medical and family history, blood and urine tests, and a psychological evaluation. You will also have a chance to discuss your rights and responsibilities with the representative at clinic. A donation will not take place unless you are accepted and matched with a woman who will receive your eggs, and give your consent.
Once you are accepted by clinic then further process will be in flow. Your eggs will then be mixed with sperm from the intended father at IVF center and embryo transfer will take place further. If the recipient becomes pregnant and delivers a child, she will be the birth mother and legal mother of that child even though the child will be genetically related to you. You will not have any legal rights on the baby ( this term will be included in the consent ).
