Become an Egg Donor

Becoming An Egg Donor

Here is the process, in a nutshell:

  1. Upon your acceptance to our program, your profile will be put onto a photo-listing of available donors in our egg donor agency.
  2. Infertile couples are given a password so that they can access these profiles and photos, and based on what their particular needs are, (usually things like similarity to the recipient mother, ethnic background, etc) they select a donor, say for example... you!
  3. Upon selection, the next step would be for you to attend a psychological evaluation. This is done primarily to make sure that you are emotionally ready to perform what is required as a donor, also to get a little insight into your personality.
  4. Once we receive clearance from the psychologist, you will then contact an attorney to review your contract. Once we have received contracts from all parties, you will call the clinic to arrange for your medical evaluation.
  5. Once we receive clearance from the psychologist, You then call the clinic to arrange for your medical evaluation. This appointment will include several tests, bloodwork , a pap smear, and also training so that you will know how to inject your medication when the time comes.
  6. Soon, it will be time to begin your medications. The first phase involves a medication called Lupron. This is generally taken for about 12 days, by injection, once a day.
  7. You will then come in to the clinic for a blood test and an ultrasound. After this, it starts getting pretty busy for you. The good news is, it's almost over...
  8. The second phase is called the stimulation phase. This stimulation medication (FSH) is also give once a day via injection for about 12 days, so in most cases, you are now giving yourself two shots a day, but like I said, it's almost over...
  9. The clinic will have you come in during this time period for several appointments to make sure everything looks okay and adjust the dosages if necessary.
  10. Toward the end of this week you will take your final injection, called the "trigger" shot or hCG. This gets your ovaries ready for your procedure.
  11. About 34 hours after you give yourself the "trigger", you will be in your procedure.
  12. The procedure is performed in the clinic. You will be given a sedative which will put you into a semi-conscious state. Most donors feel and remember nothing from their procedure. You are closely monitored by both your physician and anesthesiologist throughout the procedure.
  13. About an hour later you will be awake, and ready to go home and catch up on your daytime tv. Most donors return to work/ school the following day.
