What's involve in the egg donation process?
After a general health check-up, hormone stimulating drugs will be given through daily injections. Usually in the lower stomach or thigh. Throughout this time, they perform ultrasounds to check the size of the follicles developing on the ovaries. Once the follicles matures, it's time for egg collection!! This procedure is done under light anaesthesia, a thin needle will to carry the follicles from the ovaries using vaginal ultrasound. Then the follicles are off to the lab to start the embryo process.
Rewarding experience being able to give the gift of life.
While egg donation is very invasive, it's also a very rewarding experience give the gift of life. Most side effects from the fertility drugs and egg collection process pass quickly, and in most cases, only a few days to rest before resuming normal activities.
Different states have different laws and legalisation regarding how they store donors information. Just a Baby recommends seeking legal advice before seeking out donor services.
