Donor Screening

Apply Online

To start, fill out this quick initial application. If approved, you will then complete a more detailed questionnaire including information about your personal & family medical history, your interests and hobbies, and photos. This is your opportunity to share with us and future parents what is unique and special about you!

Donor Screening


Upon completion of the online questionnaire and initial phone interview, eligible applicants will be scheduled to start the screening process which includes a vaginal ultrasound & bloodwork to evaluate ovarian reserve (or “egg count”), genetic testing, infectious disease testing, physical examination and psychological evaluation and testing.

Acceptance into the Donor Program


If eligibility requirements are met and you are approved to become an egg donor, you will be scheduled for a stimulation cycle and egg retrieval. The stimulation cycle takes approximately two weeks during which you will self-administer fertility medication to stimulate egg production.

Egg Retrieval Process

Egg Retrieval

Once your body is ready, you will be scheduled for egg retrieval. The egg retrieval is a minimally invasive outpatient procedure performed under IV sedation that takes roughly 20 minutes.
