Egg Donation Timeline

Elite Fertility Solutions explains how long it takes to donate eggs

The hopeful parents who come to Elite Fertility Solutions are forever grateful to the generous egg donors who make their dreams of parenthood possible, so we thank you for considering becoming an egg donor.

If you want to know how long it takes to donate eggs, you aren’t alone. All donors have this question when they begin the egg donation process, and the team at our Southern California egg donation agency is happy to walk you through the process.

You might be pleasantly surprised to learn how long it takes to donate eggs

Our Southern California egg donation agency realizes that your time is valuable, so we only work with fertility specialists who have a track record of providing safe and efficient care to our donors. When we tell donors how long it takes to donate eggs, they are excited to learn that the egg donation process takes a little more than one month, but most of that time involves at-home treatment or waiting.

  • On the third day of your menstrual period, you will start taking oral contraceptive pills. The purpose of taking birth control pills is to keep you from ovulating while you wait to start ovarian stimulation.
  • Two to three weeks later, you will visit a fertility specialist for blood work and an ultrasound. If your physician determines that your results look good, you can begin taking fertility medications to stimulate the growth and maturation of multiple eggs in your ovaries.
  • For approximately 10 days, you will give yourself injectable fertility medications. You will also visit your fertility specialist for frequent monitoring appointments. When your physician determines that the time is right, you will administer an hCG trigger shot to cause your ovaries to release your eggs.
  • Then, 34 to 36 hours after the hCG trigger shot, you will visit your fertility specialist for egg retrieval. You will be sedated during this approximately 15 minute procedure, and you can return home the same day.

Although the length of the egg donation process might vary slightly from woman to woman, you can expect the process to take 36 to 37 days.

Elite Fertility Solutions compensates you for your time

Our Southern California egg donation agency understands that your time is valuable, so we provide fair and generous compensation to the women who help hopeful parents create families.
