Conceptual Options’ Donor Education: How To Prepare to Become an Egg Donor
The act of donating one’s eggs is perhaps one of the most generous and selfless things a woman can do. Those who can not conceive on their own need the help of egg donors to build their dreams of having a family.
Perhaps, you want to become an Egg Donor yourself. If so, there are a number of things to think about as you prepare yourself. How will performing a cycle affect me and my lifestyle? What does an egg retrieval entail? Well, we have the information you need to help you decide if Egg Donation is right for you as follows:
Finding the One
The truth is, Intended Parents search many, many databases and profiles to find their chosen Egg Donor. Finding the perfect Egg Donor can be one of the hardest parts of a person’s IVF journey.
Intended Parents all over the globe are looking for someone special to help them build their family. They are so grateful to the women who are willing to perform a donation. Certain characteristics and traits help them choose their lovely donor.
By helping them do something they can’t do on their own, you will receive an incredible amount of thanks and gratitude. In fact, some Egg Donors aren’t prepared for the overwhelming amount of love and appreciation they receive from their Intended Parents (whether anonymous or not).
To be sure, donating eggs is an FDA approved, safe process that women have been doing for many, many years. Though each donor’s body may respond a little different, you should know that this is an approved and safe process, which will include the administration of several hormones that you’ll use to prepare yourself and your body for the egg retrieval.
These medications are administered in regulated amounts by licensed IVF doctors and clinics, and we only work with the best fertility clinics to ensure it’s done in a healthy manner. You will be consistently checked upon to ensure your ovaries are healthy and safe.
There may be occasional cramping or a little bloat, but this will pass. The cycle is usually only 11-13 days long.
The Final Day of Hormones
The actual retrieval is the easy part of the process. It’s a same day in same day out
procedure that many donors state as being seamless and peaceful.
Light anesthesia is used, and the procedure shouldn’t last more than an hour or so.
A Gift In Return
Compensation is your Intended Parents way of giving back to you for what you’ve given to them. While most Intended Parents state that no monetary amount will ever cover their gratitude, they are happy to compensate you for your commitment to them and to the egg donation process.
Donors use compensation for a variety of things like paying down loans, starting a business, or helping them get back on the right track financially.
The Gift of Donation
There are so many benefits to Egg Donation. It is a rewarding experience that you will always be glad you did.
Helping others who are in need is something that will change you as a person as you go throughout your life. When you’re ready to offer the ultimate gift to another person, contact Conceptual Options — we can help get you started right away.
