An egg donor donates some of her eggs to an infertile woman. This allows the infertile woman to have a baby. Infertile couples can have infertility due to poor egg quality. Donated eggs from an egg donor help couples become pregnant. They are unable to become pregnant without healthy eggs from an egg donor. Our egg donors feel that donating some of their eggs is rewarding.
Once we accept you to be an egg donor then you will be available for our intended parents to select you to become their egg donor. You could be matched quickly or it could take a couple of months.
Intended parents have searched for their perfect donor and now they have found you! You will have your first medical appointment called your initial medical screening at the fertility clinic to ensure that you are healthy and ready to donate some of your eggs.
You will have a free full medical and genetic testing at the intended parents fertility clinic to make sure that you are healthy to donate some of your eggs. At your medical screening appointment: blood test to test your hormone levels, rule out infections, STD’s, drug and alcohol screening. Your blood test will determine what your genetics are. For an example, you will know what genes you have that might be high risk of a serious disease in you or your children.
Then you will have an online psychological evaluation. Our therapist is amazing, and you will love her!
Once you complete your initial medical screening appointment then we wait for the results which could take 3-6 weeks. If you decide to donate again then this waiting period is only about 2 weeks.
After we receive full medical clearance that you are healthy to donate then we move onto you attorney contracts. You will be assigned an attorney who will be your advocate and she will review your contract with you. This is no cost to you.
Egg Donor Attorney Message. My name is Ellen Rubenstein and am an attorney who reviews Egg Donation Agreements with egg donors. The legal process is very straightforward and easy. I am passionate about egg donation and egg donors. I have much respect for egg donors, and I truly enjoy helping egg donors during this phase of the egg donation cycle.
Now you are ready for the medication (which tell your ovaries to prepare for the retrieval). You will take injections (tiny needles that are painless) for about 10 days. Our nurse will walk you through every step of the way. The injections will prepare your ovaries to save some of your eggs for the retrieval instead of discarding them with your monthly period. These eggs would normally be discarded with your period but instead you will be donating them to a couple. Our eggs donors say that the injections are so tiny you can’t feel any pain.
You will be on your medication for about 10 days. Then your body will be ready for the egg retrieval around the 12th days. Once you are on your medication for about 10 days you will have morning appointments at the fertility clinic near you to check your hormone levels. On about day 12 you will have your egg retrieval.
During the 10 days of medication, you will go to the fertility clinic approximately 6-7 times so that the physician can monitor the progress of your ovaries. The appointments are between 7am-10am. Our egg donors can go to their quick appointments before school or work. Egg donor compensation is for your time and effort of attending to your appointments. You will have plenty of notice of when these appointments will be so that you can adjust your morning schedule.
A 2015 research review showed that most young adult females have around 400,000 eggs. So, taking an average of 24 eggs per donation cycle for several cycles will leave many to spare for the future.
One of our greatest hopes is that the compensation you receive will open up wonderful doors of opportunity for you in your own life. Many donors use their compensation money to pursue educational goals, travel abroad, donate to charitable organizations or buy their first home. In such cases, egg donation becomes a win-win situation for both the egg donor and intended parent.
Please understand that the compensation does not begin to fully reflect the immense gratitude that the Intended Parents feel. Their deep appreciation and good wishes for the donor continue for many years. This will be an amazing, beautiful experience that you will never forget. We look forward to hearing from you and helping you give the greatest gift of life possible.
