Step 3: Acceptance into Our Program
Once the small examination and blood screening is fine, you have been accepted into the program and the matching process with future parents starts.
Step 4: Matching process and selection by intended parent
When an Intended Parent comes to our clinic, we help them find an egg donor based on the characteristics they are looking for. Usually it is characteristics similar to the intended mother, such as ethnicity, hair color, eye color, etc. We then provide egg donor profiles to the Intended Parents to review based on their specific criteria. All the process is fully anonymous. Upon selection, we will contact you to share the good news!
Step 5: The stimulation process begins
Once we are ready to proceed with the cycle, the coordinator will provide you with cycle dates, a medication instruction sheet and the schedule for your monitoring appointments that you attend while taking medication. The coordinator will schedule an in-person appointment or phone call to do injection teaching. Egg donors will take medications for approximately 2 weeks and will have approximately 2-4 monitoring appointments. Monitoring appointments consist of an ultrasound and blood draw to monitoring your response to the medications.
Step 6: The Egg Retrieval
The egg retrieval procedure will be completed at the clinic. The procedure itself is no more than 20 – 30 minutes. You will be required to come in earlier and be fasting. You will be under monitored anesthesia care. You will be closely monitored by the gynecologist –fertility specialist and anesthesiologist throughout the procedure. Once the procedure is done, you will stay in the recovery room for approximately 1 hour to allow your vitals to return to normal. You are required to bring a companion along with you to drive you home. You will be on bed rest for the remainder of the day.
