The Egg Donation process
As part of their initial application and counselling sessions our donors undergo a thorough medical examination by our resident OB/Gyn. Applicants are rejected if they are found to have any medical condition(s) on our restricted list or have had cosmetic surgery, (with the exception of dental work).
Once a donor has completed her application she meets with one of our professional counsellors who explains the donation process in detail. Including any side effects that she may experience during her medical treatment.
A signed agreement
All donors must sign an agreement to this effect before they start the process. It is also explained that on signing the Agreement she loses all rights to her eggs once she has completed her donor cycle.
Donor Medical Screening
Donor screening is the most important part of the egg bank process and our donors are screened to American FDA standards- the highest in the world.
The medical screening process is extremely comprehensive so you can be sure that your donor will be free of genetic and communicable diseases.
Mock Cycle first
Once the donor has passed her medical screening she has a mock IVF cycle to check her potential to quality eggs. If she passes she is then scheduled for an egg bank IVF cycle and her eggs collected and frozen by our Cryotech certified embryologists.
Generally, we have a wide range of donor eggs available but may at times have a short supply due to the heavy demand for our donors. We also provide our egg bank service to clinics in other countries but try to maintain healthy stock levels for our direct patients.
Egg Bank advantage
The big advantage for egg donation is that you can purchase eggs and have a donor cycle in just a few weeks rather than having to wait for a donor to become available, scheduled and have her IVF cycle matched to you. And thanks to recent advances, success rates for frozen or fresh egg cycles are now almost identical.
Egg bank for surrogacy
Egg Bank services have transformed the way people approach fertility treatment. Particularly where surrogacy is involved. We can ship to overseas countries within a few days. You can also have the male partner’s sperm collected at our clinic, the eggs thawed and fertilised and we can then ship the eggs for you. There are many options.
