Egg Donation Process: 10 Steps to Egg Donation
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.
You will be asked to fill in a short online questionnaire - part 1.
If you meet the initial criteria you will be invited to BCRM for a blood test to test your AMH level. This is a measure of your egg stores. Your AMH level will be checked and if over 10 you will proceed to step 3. If it is not above 10 a member of the egg donation team will contact you to discuss this and unfortunately you will not be able to donate.
3. Complete Medical Questionnaire
You will be asked to fill in another online questionnaire - part 2. This is a more detailed questionnaire about your health. This will be reviewed by a doctor. If suitable to donate you will proceed to step 4. If not then a member of the egg donation team will contact you.
4. More Blood Tests and Smoking Test
You will have an appointment to have a number of blood tests - full blood count, thyroid test, karyotype, cystic fibrosis screen, hepatitis B, hepatitis C, HIV, HTLV, Syphilis, CMV and haemoglobinopathy test. You will also be asked to do a urine sample to test for Chlamydia & Gonorrhoea. You will also be asked to do a smoking test to check that you are a non-smoker.
You will have a counselling appointment. This appointment will be via zoom and is a good chance to ask any questions you have and discuss the implications of donating your eggs.
6. A Scan
You will have an appointment for a transvaginal scan. This is an internal scan to look at the womb and the ovaries to check everything looks ok.
7. Doctors Appointment
You will have an appointment with an egg donor specialist doctor. They will discuss your part 2 medical form and review your blood tests and scan. They will also ask you more questions about your family history.
8. Starting Treatment
You will then be ready to start your treatment to donate your eggs. We will send you a video to watch that will give you information about what will happen during your treatment. The nurses will give you the dates for your treatment and will ensure you know how to take your medication. We will keep a close eye on you while you are taking medication and will scan you several times.
9. Egg Collection
You will come in for your egg collection. The procedure takes just over half an hour and you will be given medication to make you sleepy and comfortable. After a short rest you will be able to travel home.
After egg collection you will receive £500 for your time, expenses and generous gift. We will need you to come back 3 months after you donate your eggs to recheck your infection bloods and at this point you will receive the remaining £250 of your compensation.
