What are the steps involved in egg donation?2
Egg Donation NY helps couples with infertility issues start and build their families.
For a variety of reasons and conditions, some couples are unable to conceive a child, mostly because the woman can not produce good quality eggs.
As a result, couples have experienced significant emotional and financial strain while trying to conceive a child on their own. In many cases they look to egg donors to make their dreams come true.
Through the process, egg donors receive the same kind of individualized attention and clinical vigilance as recipient couples. Since egg donation is a complicated medical process, donors’ safety is taken very seriously.
A typical egg donor process involves:
The first step in the egg donation process is the completion of a confidential questionnaire that assesses mental and physical health.
After reviewing the application donors are contacted and undergo a lengthy screening process, both physically and psychologically. If the medical profile and family history are sufficient the donor will be referred to a physician to assess psychological and medical profile. After the consultation, a physical examination including laboratory tests will be performed. Upon satisfactory results of these tests, a stamp of approval is given.
When approved as an egg donor, information is entered into a egg donor database. A wish list is submitted by a potential recipient couple identifying desired traits. When an appropriate match is found, donor characteristics are anonymously presented to the recipient couple. A recipient couple may accept or reject the egg donor. Once a match is made the egg donation cycle begins.
Ovarian stimulation begins. The average donor cycle lasts 3 to 5 weeks from the beginning of injectable medication until the day of retrieval.
Egg Donation NY offers online and telephone consultations about your fertility questions, including information on FSH hormone, IVF, and many other treatments and conditions.
