Having passed all steps of the donor screening process, you are now approved to donate eggs.
Before the actual egg collection, you will meet with a nurse who will walk you through the preparation phase. You will be taking hormone injections for about two weeks prior to egg collection to make your ovaries produce more than the one follicle that is created during a regular menstrual cycle. With your input, the nurse will determine the right stimulation medication for you.
We will follow you closely during the preparation phase to check on how well you respond to the medication.
The egg collection takes about 20-30 minutes. You will be under conscious sedation during the procedure.
After the egg collection, you will rest in a recovery room for a few hours until you are ready to go home.
You will receive a compensation of £30 for starting the stimulation, then £300 for the egg collection, and £300 for the final blood sample three months after egg collection.
