Your latest menstrual period usually becomes the starting date of the donor cycle. To stimulate egg development, a series of injectable egg donor medications begins and continues until approximately 36 hours before the egg retrieval. You will be given exact instructions and information from the medical center on how to take the medication.


Throughout the process, you’ll be assigned approximately six to seven-morning appointments at the fertility center’s IVF (in-vitro fertilization) unit to monitor your progress and if your ovaries are stimulating properly. The appointments usually last about 30 to 45 minutes. During this time, please keep in touch with the nursing staff and your Match Manager.

Egg Retrieval

step 5:

Egg retrieval

As with any surgical procedure, you will need someone to get you to the clinic, stay with you, and get you home. The egg retrieval requires  sedation. The physician will then perform a surgical procedure to retrieve the eggs.

You should expect to be at the IVF center for about three hours on the day of egg retrieval (the actual procedure takes only 20 to 30 minutes). You may experience some fatigue and cramping afterward. Plan on spending the rest of the day taking it easy at home.

The following day you should be able to return to light or even normal activities but refrain from anything more strenuous than walking or working out until the physician gives you the green light.
