Steps To Becoming An Egg Donor

egg donation procedure

Step I

Click here and complete our online application.

Step II

Sign the Personal Information / Photo Release.

Step III

Please scan a copy of your Driver’s License and Email it to:

Please upload at least five (5) pictures of yourself.

Upon receipt, review & acceptance of your application, your profile will be added to our online egg donor database. There are a few points we want you to know.

First, your profile is strictly password protected. Only recipient parents who have completed our Recipient Registration Form, which includes having divulged their names, physical addresses and phone numbers as well as other identifying information, or called our office and given us their specific identifying information are furnished with passwords. This information is checked against known databases to confirm its validity.

Further, their behavior once inside the database is monitored and should any attempt be made by any persons to whom a password has been given to copy or attempt to download, or in any other way learn protected information, said users access will be terminated immediately, and appropriate steps taken to block their access permanently.

Second, NO personal identifying information of any kind will ever be displayed on your online profile nor released to any recipient family for any reason whatsoever without your specific written permission. Loving Donation takes the security of your personal information very seriously. Please be aware that our staff has very strict policies in place that prohibit them from discussing any donor issues or answering any questions regarding you or any other donor in our program. We will not confirm to any person that you even are a donor in our program. When a recipient family selects you as a possible match to participate in a cycle for them, we will contact you to discuss the particulars of their offer. At that time, we will be able to share with you specifics regarding how much compensation is being offered and the amount of time and travel required to complete the offered cycle. You will then be given time to reflect on this information and when you decide, just give us a call with your answer! If all parties agree, we will enter the Legal phase of the donation cycle.

Step IV

Legal Counseling

As the donation proceeds, the law firm of Rolinski & Suarez will forward your half of an Egg Donor Agreement to you. At the same time, they send the other half to the recipient parents. Later, when both parts are returned to the firm, they will be combined and will then represent one complete contract. Please feel free to contact the firm with any questions you may have. You are however REQUIRED to have this contract reviewed by an independent Attorney in your area. The intended parents cover the cost of this legal review, up to $250.00. Our legal team must receive a Legal Clearance Report from the Attorney you have selected before the donation can continue.

Step V
Psychological Screening

Your emotional health is a primary concern to the recipients and we want to minimize the chance that you may have later regrets or psychological problems as a result of your donation. Further, the recipient family has a goal here as well, which is to exclude the presence of major psychiatric diseases that could be inherited by a child, such as depression, manic-depressive disorder, or schizophrenia. Shortly after your screening your counselor will issue a Psychological Clearance Report to your Donor Coordinator. This report, (without personal identifying information), is reviewed by the agency with the family that has selected you.

Step VI
Medical Screening

Next, you will be sent for a medical evaluation that includes both a pelvic exam and blood tests that indicate your general health, hormone levels and evidence of illegal drug use or sexually transmitted diseases. After these evaluations have been completed, your Egg Donor Coordinator will receive a Medical Clearance Report. Again, this report (without personal identifying information) is reviewed with the client family and their physician.

Step VII
Financial Aspects

Medical Expenses – any and all medical expenses, including medications, that will be required for the egg donation cycle, are covered by the intended parents.

Travel Expenses – if there is travel required for the cycle, the intended parents will be responsible for all expenses for you while you are traveling on their behalf. This includes your airfare, hotel, mileage, or other ground transportation, as well as all meals.

Loving Donation coordinates your travel itinerary for you and is on call 24/7 while you travel. Insurance – if you do not have current medical insurance, a short-term policy will be obtained for you by the intended parents. This policy is designed to protect you should complications arise as a direct result of the egg donation cycle.

The compensation aspect of this relationship is clearly defined legally. You as an egg donor are being compensated for your dedication, time, effort, and discomfort in relationship to the egg donation process, not for your having relinquished your eggs. Your compensation is not relative to the number of eggs, or the quality of the eggs retrieved from you during the egg retrieval procedure.

After you have successfully completed your retrieval responsibilities, our staffs first priority is to assure that you are feeling good, and to assist in overseeing your travel back home after sufficient time for you to rest. These reservations will of course have already been made, but just in case there are any last minute needs you may have, your cycle coordinator will be standing by for you 24/7! After you are safely back home, and you feel up to it, please call our offices and we will set up your post retrieval phone consult with Deana. After that, we will begin the final phase of your donation, including sending your final compensation to you.
