Am I a good candidate for egg donation?
The best candidates are generally ages 19-31, non-smoking, have no known history of genetic disorders, and are in good overall health.
What does egg donation mean?
By donating your eggs, you will help another woman become pregnant using in vitro fertilization. This means that your egg will be sent to a lab to be combined with sperm to form an embryo, which is then implanted into the recipient.
How long does the egg donation process take?
Some are surprised to learn that the donation process takes between 4-7 months. This is because application and screening take time, as does the 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?
The egg donation screening process involves both physical and psychological evaluation. You will have your general health tested, and you will 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. Most appointments are brief, but you will need to request off work, or miss school a couple of days. The appointments generally take place in the mornings.
What will my relationship be with recipients?
Recipients will not be given identifying information about you, but they will know about you through your submitted application. You protect your anonymity by being careful about how you fill out your application. You will not meet the recipients or know the result of their IVF cycle.
Are there medications involved?
Ovulation stimulation does involve medication, which consists of a hormone medication to stimulate the reproductive cycle. Before any injection is given, fertility specialists will explain what the medication does and any potential side effects.
How much will I be compensated for donating?
Compensation is given upon the completion of the egg retrieval.
