Your time has value. That’s why we compensate our egg donors fairly: the egg donation process takes time. Our egg donors juggle multiple priorities, including jobs, families, and school. If you’re thinking about donating your eggs, you may wonder how time you’ll commit to the process. We’ll break it down for you, step by step.
As a frozen egg bank, we’re required to rigorously screen potential egg donors for health, family medical history, and much more. On average, this part of the egg donor’s journey takes two to three months and requires two to four appointments to complete. After you submit your beginning application to donate eggs, what happens during this stage?
When a woman chooses to donate her eggs through a donor agency, she needs to wait to be matched to a recipient family in need of eggs to begin their own families. This process can take months or even years—and it might never happen. Here’s something to keep in mind about donating to a frozen donor egg bank: once you’re accepted into the program, you don’t have to wait. You can begin the cycle without waiting to be matched or to have your menstrual cycle coordinated with the recipient of your donated eggs. The donation process happens on your schedule.
Once your cycle begins, the timeline begins with your period. Here’s a rundown of the timeline:
In all, the egg donation process can take about 36-37 days—a bit longer than a month. You’ll be going in for daily appointments for about 10 days. Your timing may vary—everyone is different!—but this should give you a rough idea of how long the process takes on average.
We understand this is a commitment, and we compensate you during the screening and immediately after you’ve successfully donated your eggs. Because of our donors, infertile families longing for children have hope. You value your time—and we do as well.
