The Donation Process
San Diego Egg Donation
To make the donation process simpler, we have created a 6 step donation
process. As a potential donor, these steps can give you some idea of what
to expect as you move through the donation process. Depending on whether
you decide to do
a frozen or fresh egg donation, the donation process can last anywhere from a few months to over a year.
Asian Egg Bank’s 6 Step Donation Process:
Screening – In order to become an eligible donor candidate, you will need to fill out
a brief questionnaire and meet all necessary
Application – Once the initial screening form has been improved, you will then fill out
a more detailed application.
Donor Database Listing – With the screening and application process out of the way, you will now
be able to have your information listed in our
egg donor database.
Match With Intended Parents or Apply for Frozen Egg Donation Option – In order to help hopeful parents make a more informed decision, we perform
medical, psychological, and genetic evaluations to ensure we can create
an optimal match between donor and recipient. These evaluations come at
no cost to you. If you are donating a fresh egg, egg retrieval will not
take place until a match is found. However, if you are selected to participate
in our Frozen Egg Donation option you may be able to start the process
Ovarian Stimulation – Once your egg retrieval is planned, we will begin ovarian stimulation
to increase chances of a successful pregnancy from the donated eggs. Hormone
injections and assessments take place over the next 2 weeks as you prepare
for the final step.
Egg Retrieval – With all the preparations made, the actual egg retrieval is a simple, 15-20
minute process. You will be under light IV sedation, but should be able
to return home shortly after the procedure.
