The Egg Donation Process

Egg donation, also known as ovum donation, involves multiple steps. Although it is a complex process, it is a worthwhile experience for most donors because the end result is a precious gift for a deserving couple. There is no cost to the donor during the egg donation process, and financial compensation is available for those who participate in the program.

Screening

After completing the initial application form, the screening process begins. Potential donors are asked questions regarding their general health, family medical history, and gynecological history. A complete physical evaluation is then completed followed by a personality test.

Selection and Matching

Once selected, a donor meets with a fertility expert who will help her understand the egg donation process. She will also be matched with a recipient couple. Since the egg donor program is confidential, the donor's identity will remain anonymous to the recipient.

Cycle Synchronization

Hormones, often in the form of birth control pills, are administered in order to coordinate the donor's cycle with that of the recipient. Synchronization may take a few weeks to a couple of months. During this stage, egg donors may experience symptoms similar to those of PMS or menopause.

Stimulation

After the donor's cycle has been synchronized with the recipient's cycle, the donor will receive follicle stimulating medications. Since each mature follicle produces one mature egg per month, these injections cause multiple follicles to mature. Donors are carefully monitored during this stage of the egg donation process to prevent over-stimulation. Development of the eggs will also be monitored.

Egg Retrieval

Egg retrieval is performed under moderate sedation anesthesia (aka MAC) and takes approximately 10 to 15 minutes. During the procedure, the physician inserts a vaginal ultrasound probe that allows him or her to view the donor's ovaries on a monitor. Then, the eggs are gently aspirated from their follicles.

Compensation for Egg Donors

Compensation for a donor's time and commitment during this confidential process can be up to $6,250.00 per donation (conditions apply).
