All About Egg Donation In NJ
Egg donation is a wonderful way to help someone else build their family that also comes with significant financial benefits. If you're considering egg donation in New Jersey, there are a number of agencies available to work with women who qualify. Donating your egg can be rewarding, but finding the right agency for you can be overwhelming and take up a lot of your time.
Since each agency has its own requirements and application process, getting accepted as an egg donor can be a lengthy and frustrating process. DoNotPay can help make it simpler. If you're considering donating your eggs in New Jersey, here's what you should know about the process.
Who Can Be an Egg Donor and What Does the Process Look Like?
Egg donation allows a fertile woman to give some of her eggs to be used for in-vitro fertilization for another woman who is unable to conceive using her own eggs. Donors are usually rewarded with substantial financial compensation, in addition to the emotional benefit of helping someone else start a family.
Individual egg donation clinics or agencies each have their own requirements for donors. However, there are several requirements that are fairly standard. These require women to:
- Be within the age range of 20-34, with some agencies using a narrower range
- Have no history of tobacco or non-medical drug use
- Have no hereditary medical conditions
- Be at a healthy weight
- Have a minimum of a GED with higher education preferred
- Be willing to commit to the required appointments over several months
- Have regular menstrual cycles
- Application: You'll start by filling out a basic application to ensure that you qualify to donate. Depending on the agency, you may also provide more detailed information about your health history and your personality at this point.
- Medical screening: Next, you'll need to complete a series of medical and mental health evaluations. These ensure that you're fertile, in good health and don't have any genetic conditions you could pass on. A psychological evaluation will confirm that you understand the potential emotional complexities of donating eggs.
- Matching: The agency will review your information to match you with intended parents.
- Medications: You'll give yourself injections of medications that stimulate your ovaries over about two weeks.
- Retrieval: You'll be sedated for the retrieval procedure, which takes about 20 minutes. Afterward, your eggs will either be frozen or used for in-vitro fertilization, depending on the type of donation.
- Recovery: Recovery is generally quick and straightforward, but you will need someone to drive you home from the retrieval procedure since anesthesia is used. You'll probably want to rest the next day, but you should be able to resume your regular activities after that.
