    So, how can I donate eggs?

    If you decide to donate your eggs, there will be little to no interruption in your daily life. The following is an overview of the egg donation process with RSMC:

    1. Application Process: First you must fill out an application. Once it is completed, one of our coordinators will then review it to ensure that all the criteria have been met. If you are eligible, you will receive a welcome email advising you that you have been preliminary accepted into the program. Your profile will be created and presented to our Intended Parents.
    2. Medical Screening and Evaluation:Once you are matched with an Intended Parent, you will complete your medical screening, psychological evaluation, and background check.
    3. Legal Documentation: You will have a third-party legal representative assigned to you. Your legal counsel will help you understand the terms and agreements in the egg donation contract. He or she will be in contact with our attorney and the parents.

    6. Egg Retrieval: This is a 10-20-minute process and will be done under light sedation. Your physician will retrieve your eggs vaginally. Once the procedure is over, you will be advised to rest for the remainder of the day.
    7. Post-Retrieval Check-Up:To make sure that the process went smoothly, you will be scheduled for a post-retrieval check at your local clinic. The appointments are typically scheduled in the morning, as we do not want you to miss work, school, or other commitments.
