As a potential egg donor, you may be wondering about the qualifications, including if there’s a minimum AMH (Anti-Mullerian Hormone) levels. Understanding this hormone and its significance is critical in the egg freezing and donation process, especially if you're considering donating your eggs through an egg share program like the one offered by Cofertility. Let's delve into these important topics.

What is AMH anyway?

The Anti-Mullerian Hormone, or AMH, is a hormone secreted by the cells of developing egg sacs (follicles) within the ovaries. AMH levels are often used as an indicator of ovarian reserve, which means the quantity of eggs that are available for fertilization. The hormone plays an important role in fertility care as it provides insights into ovarian function and the potential to produce viable eggs during egg freezing.

AMH testing is a common part of the fertility workup as it helps doctors understand more about your ovarian reserve and ability to retrieve eggs that can be successfully fertilized. It is important to note that AMH level is not a measure of egg quality, but of quantity, and its level remains fairly constant throughout the menstrual cycle, which makes it a good measure for predicting ovarian reserve at any time. 

What AMH do I need to donate my eggs?

Through our Split program, qualified freezers can freeze their eggs for free when donating half of the eggs retrieved to a family who can’t otherwise conceive.

In the context of donating through our Split program, having an appropriate level of AMH is important. Fertility doctors typically consider an AMH level above 2.0 ng/ml as a good indicator for egg donation, and this is the benchmark used at Cofertility. Note that some clinics have a higher requirement.

This level suggests that you are likely to respond well to fertility treatments and produce a sufficient number of eggs for both donation and personal use. This allows us to proceed with the egg retrieval process in a manner that is both safe and effective.

However, if your AMH level is lower than this, it does not necessarily mean you cannot freeze your eggs. You can still qualify for our Keep program — where you keep 100% of eggs retrieved for your own future use — we offer exclusive discounts on expenses, such as frozen egg storage. Keep members also still gain free access to our Freeze by Co Community, a safe space for those engaging in the egg freezing process (or gearing up for it) to connect and lean on each other.

Everyone is unique, and AMH is just one factor of many that we consider during the evaluation process. You can learn more about qualifications for our Split program here

What is egg sharing?

Our unique model allows you to donate your eggs while also preserving half for your own future use. This can be an advantageous option for those who want to help others by donating their eggs, but are uncomfortable with other egg donation programs.

We believe egg sharing balances the interests of the donor and the recipient. It opens up opportunities for families seeking to conceive via donated eggs while respecting the donor's potential future family planning needs.
