YOU CHOOSE THE DONOR, WE DO THE REST.
Donating eggs is one of the greatest gifts women can give to intended parents with the hopes of building a family. This selfless act can be a rewarding experience, but it can be challenging to know where to start. Fortunately, egg donors do not have to handle their journeys alone. Our experienced team at Elevate Donors is here to guide donors every step of the way and provide the support and knowledge they need to have a stress-free, successful donation.
Elevate Donors is a Washington D.C. donation agency that helps egg donors throughout their journeys to make their experience special and smooth. We proudly provide concierge-level services to all our clients, giving donors the care and attention they deserve. Most of our staff have gone through their own assisted reproduction journeys, so we understand the generous gift of egg donation and how to make donors feel comfortable by using open and honest communication along with a compassionate approach.
What Are the Requirements for Egg Donors in Washington D.C.?
At Elevate Donors, we are committed to a high level of excellence, so we conduct a highly detailed screening process for every donor in our elite database available to intended parents. This ensures egg donors meet all American Society for Reproductive Medicine and state guidelines, which include the following:
- Physically and mentally healthy
- Between 20 and 30 years of age
- No family history of genetic diseases
- Healthy body mass index (BMI)
- Does not take ADD or ADHD medication
- Good resting follicle count (AFC)
- Well-educated with verifiable test scores
- Comfortable with self-injections
- Easy to work with
With these extensive and specific requirements, we understand it can be challenging for donors to know if they qualify on their own. We facilitate several forms of testing, including a medical evaluation, psychological exam, background check, and genetic testing, to determine if donors qualify and can continue with the journey.
6 Steps to Expect on the Egg Donation Journey
Our knowledgeable and caring team members at Elevate Donors in Washington D.C. want donors to stay informed throughout their journeys and understand each stage so they always know what to expect. While every donor is different and requires personalized care, egg donation typically involves the following steps:
Before starting the in-depth screening process, all donors fill out our online application. This gives us essential information that helps us get to know them better.
If we accept a donor’s application, we continue the screening process with more extensive background checks, and pre-cycle testing , which may involve blood work to determine anti-müllerian hormone (AMH) levels. Once a donor passes the screening and meets our criteria, we add them to our premier database of other qualified donors.
Every egg donor and intended parent has different goals and expectations, so when looking for matches, we consider both parties’ preferences to give everyone a positive and personalized experience. We also discuss whether the donor wants to remain anonymous or have a known arrangement with the intended parents to help them feel comfortable.
Once matched, a donor will travel to the intended parent’s IVF clinic for a full medical evaluation. This evaluation typically includes blood and urine tests to screen for sexually transmitted infections, drug and nicotine usage, and a baseline for a number of hormones important to ovarian stimulation. It also includes a transvaginal ultrasound to determine an antral follicle count.
Once medically cleared, the legal process begins. All Elevate donors will be supplied with a highly qualified attorney who specializes in reproductive law. This attorney will assist the donor in reviewing the egg donor contract. In this document rights to parentage will be relinquished and passed on to the intended parents. Other items such as compensation, level of anonymity, and disposition of unused eggs/embryos will also be addressed.
Preparation and Retrieval
After legal clearance, the egg donor can begin preparing for retrieval by administering hormone self-injections, which induce the ovulation of multiple eggs over one cycle. The donor’s progress is closely monitored by her physician and once the eggs have matured, they are retrieved using sedation to make the procedure as painless as possible.
