Egg donors give freely of themselves and it is a very gracious, noble and admirable deed. The gift of life.
We may actually find more egg donors if they knew what the process of a donor life entailed during the egg donor program.
Essentially a donor is required to be committed to participate on a
donor program for a period of around two months. But during this time,
her committment in terms of visits and appointments is really between 5
and 7, made up as follows:
Initial medical - blood tests and an internal scan.
Initial psychological screening - this affords the egg donor of
having a personal consultation with a qualified psychologist who can
discuss the process and confirm that the egg donor program is at the
right time for the egg donor.
Two or three scans over the two week period ending with the egg retrieval.
So whilst the egg donor program requires a level of committment,
egg donors have a pleasant experience during this time of their donor
It is an opportunity to give something back that woudl have ordinarily have been lost.
