Assuming you fit the requirements to be an Egg Donor and you’ve applied to join our team here is some more information while your application is being considered.
You can expect to see a doctor, chosen by us or the clinic, between four and eight times. Traveling donors must be available in one location so that we can locate a doctor near where they are working or living.
At your first meeting with a doctor your blood will be drawn. It will then be tested for STDs, infections and other genetic disorders. You will be given a pap smear, as well as have your urine tested. Be prepared, at this first visit, to be asked a lot of questions by your doctor. Also be prepared for a vaginal ultrasound.
Your first screening will likely be scheduled on the third day of your period.
At this first visit, as well as subsequent ones throughout your cycle, vaginal ultrasounds will be performed during the cycle. This consists of inserting a wand into your vagina to produce an image on a screen. It is from this image that the doctor will monitor the growth of your ovaries as well as your eggs. This procedure is painless.
It will be necessary to test blood quite frequently to monitor hormone levels.
