When You Decide To Be An Egg Donor

When you decide to become an Egg Donor, you will want to find an agency to work with in order to be safe and protected. The first thing to do is to determine whether you meet the requirements to be an Egg Donor. 

Once accepted, you will be photographed and asked to fill out a survey. This will go into a profile that Intended Parents will peruse when choosing their Egg Donor. 

The Days & Weeks Before Donating Eggs

Before you donate eggs, you will need to visit the clinic a few times (between 5 and 9) over two weeks. The retrieval is done in an outpatient setting, but in order for this to occur quickly and easily, you need to visit to ensure that everything is aligned for the removal. 

You will be injected with hormones that will help your body to release more eggs during ovulation. Naturally, women release one egg per month, but egg donation requires more. This process is completely safe as we only work with women who pass our requirements. Doctors are able to determine whether the eggs are mature and healthy before extracting them.

The Day Of The Egg Donation

If you are going to become an egg donor, you need to know what to expect on the actual donation day. You will need to take the day off – you can work around almost everything throughout the process, but you should have the day off for the actual day. This is so you aren’t stressed out when you show up – and because you may need to undergo anesthesia. 

The actual procedure doesn’t take long at all – the doctor will go in with a needle to get to the ovary and the follicles, where the eggs will be. Once that is done, you will be in recovery. You will wake up naturally and feel groggy. You may experience some bloating or cramping from the anesthesia. Even so, you will soon be on your way home – you will need someone to drive you. For the rest of the day, just take it easy. You can resume your normal schedule the next day.

From there, you will simply have to monitor yourself for any symptoms of problems – but those are rare.
