The Egg Donation Process
There are several steps involved in the egg donation process, including:
- Self-injections of hormonal medications – given to induce multiple egg development in a single ovulation cycle
- Menstrual cycle synchronization – creating simultaneous cycles in the egg donor and recipient so that the recipient's uterus is ready to carry a pregnancy after an embryo is created using the donor’s eggs
- Egg Retrieval – a procedure in which a fertility specialist uses an ultrasound-guided needle to gently suction the donor’s eggs from the ovarian follicles
Eggs are transferred to the recipient’s uterus during a separate procedure after they have been fertilized in the lab via in-vitro fertilization (IVF).

Egg Donor FAQs
Those who donate will be provided basic details about the intended parents and the location of their fertility doctor before deciding on working with them.
Several factors can disqualify a candidate from becoming an egg donor, such as smoking, using drugs, having a high BMI, having genetic disorders, having fertility problems, or taking certain types of birth control (e.g., Depo-Provera, Mirena, or implant birth control). Another disqualifying factor is the inability to devote the time required for egg donation.
During the egg donation process, donors have a higher risk of getting pregnant due to the use of fertility medications. As such, it’s essential to abstain from PIV sexual intercourse until after the egg retrieval procedure. Be sure to read your discharge instructions to ensure how long to abstain from sex after the procedure. Some expert sources advise egg donors to wait at least three weeks after the egg retrieval procedure.
