Egg Donation Top Questions
Because of the importance of the gift they’re providing, it is important that potential egg donors fully understand the process of egg donation. Therefore, the team at New Hope fertility has compiled a list of the egg donation top questions. The answers to the egg donation top questions below can help you understand the egg donation process and if it the right choice for you.
What kind of person can be an egg donor?
There are several qualifications that potential donor must meet in order to become an egg donor. Those qualifications include age, the ability to work in the US, a healthy medical history, no history of genetic defects and no tobacco or drug use. Women who are interested in becoming a donor must pass both mental and medical screenings before being approved.
How are donors selected?
When a couple is ready to select donor eggs they do so based upon a number of criteria. Some couples will decide based on interests and education while others aim to match physical appearance. Unlike at some other egg donation centers, there is no need for women to wait until they’re selected prior to the donation cycle. Instead, a woman donates her eggs which are then frozen and stored until they are selected.
Is medication used during an egg donation cycle?
Yes, fertility medication is used in order to stimulate the production of multiple eggs. This medication includes injections that may be required multiple times per day. Potential donors must be comfortable with this before beginning the process.
Is there compensation for egg donation?
Yes, there is compensation for egg donation. At New Hope Fertility Center the compensation ranges between $8,000 and $10,000 for successful cycles. If the donation cycle has to be cancelled for medical reasons, the donor will be compensated with a decreased amount.
Is hospitalization required?
No, eggs are retrieved during an outpatient procedure.
How long the process take?
On average, an egg donation cycle takes two to three weeks from beginning to end.
