Egg donation gives couples with fertility problems the chance to achieve what they may have believed was impossible — a child of their own. With offices in San Diego and Newport Beach, California, the highly skilled team at YourEggs offers women the opportunity to donate their eggs and help others experience the joy of having children. If you’d like to help someone have a baby, being an egg donor offers compelling emotional and financial rewards. To find out how to get started with egg donation, call YourEggs today or book a consultation online.
Egg donation helps people who can’t conceive naturally experience the happiness of having children. Egg donors undergo a procedure to extract eggs from their ovaries. Then, the YourEggs team fertilizes the eggs with one of the intended parent’s sperm or donor sperm.
To be eligible for egg donation, you must be between 19 and 29, weigh less than 180 lbs, and have a BMI under 30. Contact the YourEggs team, and if you meet the criteria, they’ll explain exactly what the process involves so you can decide if egg donation is the right choice for you.
The egg donation process takes six to eight weeks from start to finish. It involves several stages:
Making sure egg donation is safe for you is the priority at YourEggs. Your provider performs a comprehensive physical exam, blood tests, a pelvic ultrasound, and a mental health assessment. They also check your AMH (anti-müllerian hormone) levels to see how many eggs you can donate.
Some people may require legal help from an attorney specializing in reproduction.
The egg donation process involves taking birth control pills for three weeks before you undergo egg retrieval. This enables the YourEggs team to coordinate follicle growth and ensure you produce strong, mature eggs.
The final stages of egg donation require a 10-day trip to beautiful San Diego or Newport Beach in Southern California. You visit one of the YourEggs clinics for two to three days of appointments, where you inject yourself with hormone medications. These hormones stimulate your ovaries so the team can harvest mature eggs.
Finally, you undergo a minimally invasive procedure under anesthesia to extract the eggs. This takes 10-20 minutes, then the team monitors you for 30-60 minutes. Afterward, you can enjoy some personal time in the glorious California sunshine.
Egg donors receive compensation for their efforts that starts at $5,000 — $8,000. Experienced, proven donors could receive up to $20,000. The YourEggs team discusses all the available options at your initial consultation.
Egg donation is a major decision and one you can’t make in moments. To find out more, contact the YourEggs Egg Donor Coordinator today, send them your introduction video and photos, or book an appointment online.
