When you become an egg donor, you make dreams come true
Infertility makes it more difficult for 1 in 8 couples to have a baby. However, you can help when you become an egg donor at Midwest Fertility Specialists (MFS). When you donate your eggs at our Indiana egg donation center, you help make parenthood possible for women and men who might not otherwise have the opportunity.
Egg donation helps intended parents overcome many causes of infertility
When you become an egg donor, you can provide the ultimate gift to an individual or a couple who has been struggling to have a child of their own. Many causes of infertility can influence men and women to turn to our Indiana egg donation center for assistance, including the following:
- Menopause or age-related female infertility
- Premature ovarian insufficiency or early menopause
- Poor egg quality
- A lack of ovaries
- Fertility damage from cancer treatments
- Unexplained infertility
- Recurrent miscarriage or IVF cycle failure
Gay couples and single men also rely on egg donation as a family-building alternative to adoption and fostering.
What happens when you become an egg donor?
Our Indiana egg donation experts are here to answer your questions and guide you through this rewarding process. You can feel confident when you become a donor at MFS because experienced fertility specialists will care for you. To keep you safe and comfortable throughout the process, they will use the latest medical procedures and follow guidelines from the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM). Our team will also take steps to protect your privacy as an egg donor.
To help you know what to expect as a donor, here’s a quick overview of the process.
- Application. To start the egg donation process, you will first apply to be a donor.
- Screening. After approving your application, our team will have you come to our fertility clinic to screen your physical and reproductive health. If everything checks out, you will become a donor.
- Fertility medications. When it’s time to donate your eggs, you will take injectable fertility medications to encourage multiple eggs to develop and mature.
- Egg retrieval. When the time is right, your fertility doctor will retrieve your eggs during a short outpatient procedure. You will receive light sedation to keep you comfortable. After the retrieval, you will receive your egg donor compensation.
The intended parents who receive your eggs will then have our embryologists fertilize them with sperm in the laboratory. The woman who will carry the pregnancy will then undergo an embryo transfer in hopes of achieving pregnancy.
