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:

  1. Screening – In order to become an eligible donor candidate, you will need to fill out a brief questionnaire and meet all necessary qualifications.
  2. Application – Once the initial screening form has been improved, you will then fill out a more detailed application.
  3. 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.
  4. 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 right away.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
