Breaking down the egg donation process for hopeful parents
By the time you begin the egg donation process, our Southern California egg donation experts have already completed a lot of work. Our team has reviewed a wealth of egg donor applications to ensure that we only select the best donors. Our donors must be 20 to 29 years old, be healthy and have a BMI no greater than 25. We have also screened the donors prior to being accepted into our database using the following evaluations tools.
- Physical examination and ultrasound by a Fertility Specialist
- Drug testing
- Genetic testing
- Infectious disease screening
- Psychological evaluation
The next steps of the egg donation process occur when you select one of our donors.
The clinic will provide you with a calendar outlining the medical protocol for the egg do-nation process and information on egg retrieval. This will include a schedule of fertility medication based around your menstrual cycle, which will stimulate the donor’s ovaries to produce more eggs. It will also let you know when to expect the egg retrieval process, which is a short procedure performed at the clinic under sedation.
During this short, outpatient procedure, the doctor will remove the eggs from the ovarian follicles. Embryologists in the laboratory will combine the eggs with sperm from you or your partner to achieve fertilization. You and your doctor will discuss if genetically testing the embryos is right for you and the best time to transfer the embryos.
