Breaking down the egg donor process

To start, you will complete an online, confidential application. If you meet our initial qualifications, you will schedule a telephone consultation with our donor coordinator. We want to ensure the safety of our egg donors, so we screen and accept potential donors into our elite program based on the following criteria.

  • Physical examination and transvaginal ultrasound
  • Psychological evaluation
  • Infectious disease screening
  • Genetic testing
  • Drug screening

What happens next? The 411 on egg retrieval

After completing the required steps and being accepted as an elite donor candidate, we will create your unique profile on our website. This profile will contain no identifying information. Once prospective parents select you to be their donor, you will begin the egg donor process. Although timing may vary, the whole cycle usually takes two to four weeks.

The fertility specialist will create a medication calendar for you and prescribe ovarian stimulation medication. These medications will stimulate egg production. During this time, you receive careful monitoring with bloodwork and ultrasounds.

When your eggs are mature, you will return to the fertility specialist for the egg retrieval. During this 30-45 minute, outpatient procedure, you will be lightly sedated. The fertility specialist will retrieve the mature eggs from your ovaries with an ultrasound guided needle.

You will be sleepy the day of the retrieval, and you must have a designated person to drive you home. We recommend that you rest that day and possibly a few days after the procedure. Within a week, you should feel completely back to normal. You’ll also have the knowledge that your generous gift has helped someone build the family of their dreams.
