What does egg donation mean?

By donating your eggs, you will help another woman get pregnant using in vitro fertilization. This means that in a lab your egg will be combined with sperm to form an embryo, which is then implanted into the recipient.

How long does the donation process take?

Some are surprised to find out that the donation process takes between 4-7 months. This is because application and screening takes time, as do lab work and other procedures involved in the process. Once you are cleared to donate, the stimulation cycle will begin, which helps match your cycle with your recipient. This can take about a month.

What does the testing and screening procedure involve?

Both physical and psychological evaluation are generally part of the egg donation screening process. You’ll have your general health tested, and you’ll receive blood work and a pelvic ultrasound.

Will this affect my ability to have children in the future?

No. Many donors have children later in life.

Will all this make it hard to work or go to school?

There are several appointments during the process of egg donation.  Many appts are brief but you will need to request off work, or miss school a couple of days.  The appointments are generally set in the mornings.

What will my relationship be with recipients?

Recipients will know about you through your submitted application, but won’t be given identifying information. You protect your anonymity by being careful about how you fill out your application. You won’t meet the recipients or know the outcome of their IVF cycle.

Are there medications involved?

Ovulation stimulation does involve medication, which is hormone medication to stimulate the reproductive cycle. Before any injection is given, fertility specialists will explain what the medication does and the potential side effects.

How much will I be compensated for donating?

Compensation is given at the completion of the egg retrieval.
