How Does The Egg Donation Process Work? - Hair & Beauty Classified Ads in New York
When a woman is identified as a donor, she takes fertility medications to stimulate the development of multiple eggs. When the eggs have developed or matured, they are removed from the donor's ovaries. Usually, around 10 to 20 eggs can be retrieved. Once the eggs are outside the donor's body, they are fertilized with sperm from any source (such as your male partner or a sperm donor). The fertilized eggs are allowed to mature further in the laboratory. Also in the egg donation process, you will take hormones (estrogen and progesterone, which are normally produced from the ovaries) to prepare your uterus to accept the embryos. Finally, the embryos are transferred into your uterus. You will continue to take hormonal medications to support the lining of the uterus after the transfer. If the embryo implants into the lining of your uterus and continues to develop, then a pregnancy has occurred.
