Egg Donation Cycle

Elite Fertility Solutions explains how an egg donation cycle works

The team at Elite Fertility Solutions realizes that becoming an egg donor is an important and serious decision. That’s why our California egg donation agency wants to give you all the information you need to make an informed decision about participating in an egg donation cycle.

You must meet several requirements before you can participate in an egg donation cycle

If you are interested in beginning the egg donor process, you must first prequalify with our California egg donation agency. If you meet these requirements as an egg donor, you can move onto the next steps.

  • Provide detailed information about your personal, family and medical history
  • Have a medical screening to ensure you are healthy and have normally functioning ovaries
  • Attend a psychological counseling session with a reproductive therapist

After you complete our prescreening requirements, we will create a personal online, non-identifying profile that highlights all your unique qualities.

IMPORTANT: You should only agree to be a donor if you can completely commit to the cycle requirements. Our intended parents have experienced years of disappointment and heartache due to infertility. It is our goal to provide intended parents with committed donors.

We focus on your well-being during the entire cycle

Our goal for every egg donation cycle is to ensure our donors have a positive and rewarding experience. Our California egg donation agency only works with board certified reproductive endocrinologists. These doctors follow the strict guidelines of the FDA and the American Society for Reproductive Medicine to ensure that you have a safe and successful egg donor cycle.

Based on your schedule, you will determine the date that you start your egg donation cycle. On the third day of your menstrual period (even if it is a weekend or a holiday), you will visit the fertility clinic for a vaginal ultrasound and bloodwork. Your doctor will then provide you with your ovarian stimulation medication calendar and protocol.

While you are taking the medications, your fertility specialist will monitor you every few days with bloodwork and a transvaginal ultrasound. Your doctor will use the monitoring appointment results to make any medication dosage adjustments. He or she will also use this information to determine when your eggs are mature and ready for retrieval.

When your eggs are mature, you will take a final injection, which is called a trigger shot. This is a natural hormone that will tell your ovaries that it is time to release the eggs. You will return to the fertility specialist 34-36 hours later for the egg retrieval.

During this procedure, you will receive light anesthesia for the 30-45 minute, ultrasound-guided egg retrieval procedure. The recovery period is minimal, with most women returning to regular activities about seven to 10 days after the retrieval.

Your compensation check, which will include mileage and any out of pocket expenses, will be sent to you within a week of the egg retrieval procedure. In addition to receiving this generous compensation, you’ll also have the knowledge that you made someone’ dream of parenthood come true.  If you’re ready to begin the egg donation process with Elite Fertility Solutions, please contact us.
