Medical examination

You’ll meet one of our doctors. This fertility specialist will conduct a physical examination, an internal ultrasound and will review your screening test results and explore your medical and genetic history. Any matters of concern will be discussed with you before you commence your donation treatment cycle.

Counselling

This is an essential step in the process, as it helps you work through the potential impacts of donating. It’s important that you are well informed about the future implications of your donation, so a minimum of two counselling sessions are required. If you have any partners, they will need to attend the sessions with you, so that they're informed about the implications of your egg donation for them and their current/future family and the implications for children conceived from your donation. During the counselling sessions, the counsellor will explain your rights and responsibilities as an egg donor and will explore any potential barriers to you becoming a donor.

Screening tests

To allow us to check for any infectious or genetic conditions that you may be a carrier for, you will be required to undergo screening tests. This usually just involves a simple blood and saliva test.

Egg donation treatment cycle

Egg donors will undertake an egg donation treatment cycle which will be explained in detail by your fertility specialist. The cycle will involve you administering medications via injections and attending our clinic for internal ultrasounds and blood tests. You will attend an appointment with your fertility nurse who will explain which medications you will be required to administer and provide you with a demonstration. Your nurse and/or specialist will notify you of when you will undergo your egg collection.

Quarantine of eggs

The recipient of your donated eggs will discuss with their fertility specialist if they wish to have the eggs quarantined. If they do not wish for this to occur, they can proceed to directly creating embryos and undergoing treatment. The recipient will be required to sign additional paperwork for this to occur.
