The donation process itself takes approximately two to three weeks although there are several steps to take first. We will discuss the process in depth with you to ensure you understand the treatment pathway and are happy to proceed. Counselling is required to ensure you understand the implication of donating your eggs and receive support from an independent counsellor. We will also perform a full medical screening. Once you’re matched with a recipient, we can begin the donation cycle.
First, your ovaries are stimulated with fertility drugs – you must inject these daily for approximately ten to 12 days. We will perform ultrasound scans to monitor the ovaries and the developing follicles which contain the eggs. When you’re ready, we will collect your eggs – this is a quick, in-clinic procedure. It typically takes less than 30 minutes.
