Once your final donor application process is completed and accepted, we will contact you to arrange an over-the-phone or in-person interview. During this initial meeting, you will be informed of the medial processes. We will assist you in completing a donor profile, which will assist in your ideal match with intended parents.
Once your profile is ready, we will add you to our donor database that is accessible to intended parents.

All egg donations involve an anonymously signed, legal contract between a donor and a recipient defining parental rights. As a donor, Future Generation offers you, expert legal counsel. This resource will help your understanding of the documents that surrender your right to the retrieved eggs you donate.
You will begin to synchronize your menstrual cycle with the recipient of your eggs by taking birth control. You will also undergo home fertility hormone treatment. During the treatment phase of the process, you will make brief visits to the physician's office for monitoring.
The egg retrieval step takes place in the morning and usually lasts about thirty minutes. You will be sedated for this process, so be sure to arrange a ride home. There will be a short recovery period in the office. We recommend that you quietly rest at home for the remainder of the day. Most women feel fine after this process, and you should be able to return to regular activity the next day. You can expect to get your period in about two weeks.
