Egg Donation Process: The Seven Steps

If you are considering donating your eggs, you may find this step by step guide to the process helpful. Our dedicated egg donation team are there to support you every step of the way.

Egg Donation Process Step 1: online form

1. Application

The first step is to complete our short application form. We will review the details you have provided and contact you to confirm if you are suitable to become an Egg Donor.

Egg Donation Process Step 2: Medical History

2. Testing

We will need to check your hormone levels by taking a blood test. We will contact you with the results and if there are no issues then we can book you in for the next step.

Egg Donation Process Step 3: Counselling

3. Appointment and Counselling

You will have an appointment with our dedicated team of egg donor nurses. They will check your medical history, along with that of your family and take further blood tests. They will talk you through the egg donation process so that you understand what happens and when. You will also meet with one of our experienced counsellors to discuss the implications of becoming an egg donor. This is an excellent time for you to ask all the questions you may have.

Suppressing Hormone Cycle

4. Preparation

After your test results are back (which can take 4-6 weeks), you will meet with one of our egg donor consultants who will decide on the right treatment to stimulate egg production. We will talk you through everything you need to know, show you how to self-administer the medication and when to take it. The treatment will last approximately 2 weeks.

Ultrasound Scan

5. Monitoring

During the time you are taking medication, we will keep a close eye on you. We will scan you during this time to ensure you are producing the eggs we expected and to check when they will be ready for collection.

Egg Collection

6. Egg Collection

The procedure to collect the eggs takes just over half an hour, and we will give you medication to make you sleepy and comfortable during this time. After a short rest, you will be able to travel home. We do recommend that you have someone to drive you home as you might still be feeling a little sleepy. You will be able to return to work the day after your procedure.

Egg Donation Process Step 4: Screening Test

7. Compensation

You will receive £750 for each donation cycle you do. This is to compensate you for your time, expenses and generosity as an egg donor.

Despite growing demand for egg donations, there is a shortage of egg donors in the UK. Could you help by donating your eggs?
