Updated: Jul 21, 2020

Fortunately, IVF and assisted reproductive technology have become widespread in the world, the infertility couples or single fathers no longer need to hide the fact that their babies have come out the eggs of another person who acted as the donor in their childbirth process. You have responsibilities to clear before you become an egg donor.

Important Factor of an IVF Cycle Egg donation is one of the important parts of an IVF cycle. It is a preferred procedure for all those infertile couples who suffer from a lack of healthy eggs to mature. Except for infertile couples, singles and homogeneous couples also choose the way of egg donation because they are not able to produce one for them. Although egg donors are financially compensated for their donation, they are expected to be emotional and empathetic towards the intended parents. They have a bigger responsibility when they decide to help people. In fact, every egg Donor fully understands their duties. Not only they have to take care of themselves during the preparation phase for donation but also have to who considered the intended parent’s emotions involved in the process.

Following Medical Prescriptions Egg donors should strictly follow the doctor’s prescription in the whole IVF cycle. You should understand the function of medicine given to you and inject it on time. There is a great difference between a medicine taken on time and the medicine taken at a later time. You would be on her own at her house without any nurse to remind her of the medicine. We suggest our egg donors take the medicines timely, which is very necessary for producing healthy eggs.

Pay Attention to Stimulation To develop multiple eggs in her ovary, the egg donor needs to inject stimulation medications every day until egg retrieval. The IVF doctors will use those eggs to perform in vitro fertilization. Egg donors are expected to coordinate with the procedure and help the IIBF program to go smoothly.

Visit Doctor in Timely An egg donor is necessary to regularly visit the doctor and monitored medication situation. This will help to monitor the medical progress or any change of medication that egg donors might require adjusting. Please never miss a doctor’s appointment. In case you are not able to make it by yourself, you should coordinate with your agency and get yourself another date for the doctor’s visit.

Don’t Miss Any Medicine The type and dose of medications are vital factors for egg retrieval. Even a single miss out of a dose of medicine t can ruin the entire medication process and matured egg number. Therefore, egg donors should be careful and maintain a regular routine in their medicine intake. This schedule is personal and the egg donor should be responsible for maintaining it herself. IVF doctor would suggest egg donor inject medications in at evening. If you have missed any medicine or a dose, you should immediately contact the doctor and disclose it in detail. The doctor will be the best guide to help you this time.

No Alcohol, No Smoking

Last but not least, egg donors should keep away yourself from addicting to any type of bad behavior. Consuming alcohol and smoking cigarettes can harm your medication procedure, which will ultimately have a negative effect on the IVF program.

In the end, we will guide every egg donor in the procedure of preparing yourself to donate healthy eggs to a childless couple. Apart from all the guidance that we have mentioned above, there are many other matters should be noticed, we’ll discuss in an upcoming blog.
