I registered on several egg donation sites quite awhile ago. I haven't had any matches. I am 31. Have I not had any matches becasue I am to old or am I just not with the right agencies?

Say thanks for the support and click on a banner ad!

Well unfortunately there are MANY REs who encourage IPs to only use ED under the age of 28 although some will frown at those 28-30 they will still take them. Many IPs are not willing to stand up for what they want by taking an older donor even if her FSH and AFC tests come back showing she is still fertile as a mid 20 yr old.

There are still ways you can match- Indy or apply with another agency (however always let agencies know when you are applied with another agency so if they show your profile they will know if you are completely available or MAYBE available)

There are still plenty of people that will use an older donor.

I will tell you it would HELP you if you went ahead on your own and asked your PCP or OB/GYN to run a 3day FSH on you. That would help get your foot in the door at MANY REs.
