Once you have been selected

Becoming an egg donor is a serious commitment on your part. It's very important to us that you have a complete understanding of what is required of you as an egg donor prior to fully committing to the egg donation process. We're here to fully educate, embrace and nurture you throughout your egg donation process with us. Our egg donation program has assisted couples and individuals from all around the world experience the miracle of life because of beautiful women like yourself. Becoming an egg donor also gives you the opportunity to learn about your own genetics and fertility through the screening process that you may not know otherwise.

The Steps to Becoming an Egg Donor

  1. The Intended Parent(s) look through our password protected egg donor database. Sometime intended parent(s) may ask any additional questions about a particular egg donor profile. They might have questions for you that they would like us to ask. They may request additional pictures. We'll work with you to create an ideal egg donor profile. All correspondence will be done through Creative Love Egg Donor & Surrogacy Agency.
  2. You've been selected to join our agency family after completing your application and passing prescreening testing of your fertility levels.
  3. Congratulation! You've been selected by one of our intended parent(s) to become their egg donor. Creative Love Egg Donor & Surrogacy Agency will contact you to verify your availability. You may choose to accept or decline this egg donation cycle. IMPORTANT! Only accept a match if you are able to commit to the entire process.
  4. You will be required to undergo a psychological consult with a PhD psychologist who specializes in egg donation. You will given an MMPI which is the most frequently used clinical personality test. It provides an objective measure of a person's personality. It also provides information about any potential psychological problems or symptoms that may deem a potential donor inappropriate to proceed with the egg donation process.
  5. Now you're ready to visit the cycling fertility clinic. You will undergo a medical evaluation, including a blood draw, genetic screening, drug screening and infectious disease screening as well as an ultrasound of your ovaries. You'll meet the Dr. for your physical. Once again, the egg donation process as well as all medications will be explained to you by the IVF nurse at the clinic. All of your questions will be answered.
  6. You will have a legal contract between you and the intended parent(s). An attorney that is paid for by the intended parent(s) for you will go over the entire contract and the egg donation process with you. The contract covers important topics like your commitment, egg donor compensation, insurance coverage and travel expenses if you're traveling to the cycling fertility clinic. They will explain the contract to you and answer all of your questions. Before you sign the contract, you can request changes that your attorney can forward to the intended parent's attorney. Once all parties are in agreement with all terms of the contract you can sign and return to your attorney.
  7. The cycling fertility clinic will now be in charge of the cycle. We'll hold your hand each step of the way. You will receive very specific instructions on all steps required of you by the clinic that you are cycling at. You must take all medications at the appropriate times and be punctual for all appointments. The IVF nurse will give you a lesson on how to correctly administer the medication. You will also be given a calendar fully showing you how the cycle will run.
  8. You will typically start the cycle with birth control pills which is considered a down regulation medication for approximately 8 to 10 days.
  9. You will then administer follicle stimulating hormones for approximately 5 to 14 days.
  10. During this time, donors will have approximately 4 to 8 monitoring appointments at the IVF clinic. At these appointments, you will receive a blood draw (to check your hormone levels) and an ultrasound (to monitor follicular growth).
  11. A final injection hCG or Lupron will be administered approximately 36 hours prior to retrieval.
  12. The egg retrieval will be done at the clinic of the intended parent(s). If the IVF clinic is out of state, you will be required to travel to the IVF clinic 4 to 5 days prior to retrieval for monitoring. You will receive anesthesia. The eggs will be retrieved through an ultrasound-guided needle.
  13. Your compensation will be given to you the day after retrieval (next business day if the retrieval falls on a weekend or holiday).
  14. Within a week of the egg retrieval, you will mail all your accrued expenses (if any) to Creative Love Egg Donor Agency. A reimbursement check will be mailed to you within two weeks of receipt.
