Breaking down the egg donor process
Initially, potential donors will complete an application and schedule a consultation. For consideration as an egg donor, you should be between 20 to 29 years of age, have good overall health and fall into an appropriate weight range for your height. We want to ensure the safety of both intended parents and our donors, so we screen potential donors based on the following:
- Physical examination and ultrasound
- Blood work
- Drug testing
- Psychological evaluation
- Infectious disease screening
- Genetic testing
What happens next? The 411 on egg retrieval
After you are accepted as an egg donor candidate and have completed the required steps, we will enter your information into our database. Once you are selected by intended parents, we will begin the egg retrieval process. Although timing may vary with each individual, the whole cycle usually takes two to four weeks.
First, a fertility specialist will prescribe medication to synchronize your cycle with that of the intended mother and prepare your body to produce an adequate number of mature eggs. We will closely monitor your cycle with blood work and ultrasounds to ensure that ovulation induction progresses as expected.
At the appropriate time, you will return for the egg retrieval, a roughly 20-minute outpatient procedure that allows the physician to extract eggs from ovarian follicles. Patients are sedated for egg retrieval, but can return to normal activities within 24 hours.
As an egg donor, you can give an immeasurable gift to individuals and couples who can’t conceive without help. The team at our Newport Beach egg donor agency can assist you in deciding if this rewarding experience is right for you. Contact us for more information about becoming an egg donor.
IMPORTANT: Only agree to participate in a cycle if you are able to commit. The intended parents have likely experienced years of disappointment and heartache due to infertility. It is our goal to provide the intended parent with only understanding and committed donors. If you are at all uncertain, we insist you decline participating in the program
The cycle start date is negotiated based on prior commitments of both involved parties. You come into the Doctor’s office on Day 3 of your menstrual period. Depending on the protocol which will be designed just for you , oral or injectable medications will be started. The injections are self injected with a small needle and you will be given detailed administration injections
You will return to the Doctor’s office approximately 3 days later for an ultrasound and blood work which will help determine if your medication dosage needs to be modified.
YOU ALWAYS RECEIVE SOME FORM OF COMMUNICATION ON THE DAY YOU ARE SEEN TO INFORM YOU OF YOUR MEDICATION DOSAGE EVEN IF IT IS THE SAME.
This process will continue for approximately 2 weeks when it is determined you are ready for the egg retrieval. You will be instructed to take one final injections and you will be scheduled for the egg retrieval 35 hours later.
Remember you MUST have someone with you to take you home. You may not take an UBER or a cab
