Can I call fertility clinic to get more detailed family history on egg donor?

Usually. Egg donors come in different varieties. Most are anonymous and they provide less information than open donation where you can meet the donor. Nevertheless, we try to get involved family history on every egg donor, anonymous or open. You should be worried about the clinic or agency where you have very limited information. I hope this helps, best wishes.
Usually. Fertility clinics with their own egg donor program should have a detailed family history for each donor that is available to the recipients in an anonymous fashion. If one of the immediate family members has any unusual medical condition that has a strong genetic basis then the donor should be deemed unacceptable.

Does fertility clinic have obligation to protect identity of their own egg donor?

Yes. Typically, the egg donor is an anonymous, independent contractor working for the fertility clinic. The contract should specifically state that everything is anonymous, unless the egg donor agrees otherwise. Although the laws differ from state to state, the only way that the recipient(s) can discover the identity of the egg donor is with her permission or a court order from a judge. Read more...

Yes. it is clinically significant. 1 mutation is milder than 2. but this is a situation where 1 mutation can cause a problem. so either find a new donor or meet with a genetic counselor to decide whether to use her. it does not mean she cannot be used you just need to be counseled. Read more...
