Find out what it takes to become an egg donor.
Are you interested in donating your eggs but unsure where to start? Maybe you have some questions about the process and you’d like to fully understand how egg donation works beforehand. Our South Florida physician Dr. Minna Selub of Florida Institute for Reproductive Sciences and Technologies in Weston, FL would be happy to walk you through the process. Here are some things you should understand about becoming an egg donor. Proudly serving patients from South Florida, including the Jacksonville and Tampa areas.
There are requirements for egg donation
Being able to provide couples that are struggling to have a family finally be able to create the family they’ve always dreamed of can be incredibly rewarding. A good candidate for egg donation will be,
- In good general and psychological health
- Be physically healthy and active
- Between the ages of 21 and 31
- Flexible working hours
You’ll need to come into the office regularly
Throughout the donation process you will need to come in for regular ultrasounds, exams and blood work. You may also need to undergo genetic testing. During your initial consultation with our fertility doctors will be able to explain what types of procedures you will need to undergo when you come into the office.
You will have anywhere from 8-10 doctor’s appointments during your cycle if you want to be an egg donor. During this time you will also be giving yourself daily fertility drug injections. Once the egg has matured, you will receive an injection that will stimulate ovulation so that Dr. Selub can then retrieve the egg through a minor outpatient procedure.
