The process of egg donation for transgender parents at Elite Fertility
It doesn’t matter whether you are a man or a woman, our Southern California egg donation experts are happy to help you become a parent. Our diverse, prescreened donors are ready to help you start or grow your family through the generous gift of egg donation for transgender parents.
All our egg donors have undergone comprehensive screening, so you can feel confident that the donor you select is psychologically and physically ready to donate her eggs. Our database allows you to see information about each donor’s ethnicity, appearance, education, interests and more. These details can help you find a donor who is the perfect fit for your family.
Picking your donor is the first step of egg donation for transgender parents. After selecting your egg donor, you can begin an IVF donor cycle with the fertility doctor of your choice. This process may differ slightly, depending on whether you are a trans-man or a trans-woman.
- Your donor will begin taking fertility medications to help multiple eggs develop in her ovaries. Your fertility doctor will closely monitor her while she takes these medications.
- When the donor’s eggs mature, she will receive a trigger shot. About 36 hours later, she will visit the fertility doctor for the egg retrieval.
- At this point, the fertility center will take the eggs to their laboratory to fertilize them with sperm. When the eggs are fertilized, they become embryos. After monitoring the development of each embryo, the embryologists will select the best embryo to transfer.
- If you or your partner has a uterus, you can carry the pregnancy. All other hopeful parents will have to rely on a gestational carrier. To prep the uterine lining for the embryo transfer, you or your gestational carrier will take medications. During the embryo transfer, the doctor will transfer the embryo to your or your gestational carrier’s uterus.
