Donating your eggs is an altruistic, voluntary and anonymous way to help people with no possibility to get pregnant with their own eggs to make their dream of becoming a mother come true. Month by month, your eggs are wasted when they’re not fertilized, so why not do something useful with them and make them a fundamental part in the happiness of a couple? The process of egg donation takes no more than 15 minutes, it is very simple and almost painless. We will be with you each step of the road to make sure you feel comfortable and engaged with the program.
Once we get your application, we will be doing an interview to get to know both you and your family history. This way we will be able to create a custom plan for you.
Prior to begining your process, we will perform medical analysis searching for diseases. We do this to guarantee what’s best for you and your pregnancy.
CWith blood exams and ultrasound we monitor your homone levels. We’ll check on you 5 to 7 times per cycle, prior to the egg retrieval.
Ovarian stimulation is done by the use of medication, which helps produce eggs. The medication must be applied only by medical instruction.
Once the follicles have reached the desired size and the hormones levels have increased we will program the extraction. The eggs are retrieved using a thin and flexible needle that is guided to the ovaries with an ultrasound probe. It is a quick and simple procedure.
It is an ambulatory procedure, so you may go home a couple of hours after the procedure is done if and when you are accompanied by another adult. For your safety we will not allow you to drive after being administered the sedation.
