Egg Donor Program

    Step-by-Step Instructions for Donors

    1. Go to the Egg Donor Program page and check to see if you meet the requirements and then complete the application.
    2. Once your application is received and reviewed, you will be contacted via email with information about the program and you will also be asked a few more questions to rule out any immediate disqualifications.
    3. After those answers are received and reviewed, you will then be instructed to complete a thorough medical history questionnaire online. You will need to complete that as soon as possible.
    4. This information will be reviewed. If approved, you will receive an email inviting you to schedule an initial donor consultation with one of our physicians.

    The Pre-Screening Process:

    1. You will need to come in between Monday and Friday during normal office hours for your initial donor consultation. At this appointment, you will have a transvaginal ultrasound performed and possibly a blood draw.
      *If you are not between days two and four of your period, you will need to call InVia Fertility on the first day of your next period to schedule an appointment to come in between days two and four for a blood draw and an ultrasound. This appointment will take place early in the morning.
    2. Assuming your hormone blood tests all come back within normal levels and your ovaries are normal in appearance on your ultrasound, you will be accepted into our program. We will ask that you provide pictures for your profile and we make your profile available to our patients who require the need of an egg donor. 
    3. Once you are selected for your first match with an egg donor recipient, you will need to return to the office for genetic carrier screening. This is a blood test that takes about two weeks to be completed. Once your testing is complete, you will be contacted by a genetic counselor from that lab to schedule a phone consultation to discuss your results, what they mean to you, and also to interview you about your personal and family medical history. 
    4. Once we receive the results and report from the genetic counselor and review it, you will then be asked to contact and schedule an appointment with a licensed clinical psychologist located in Arlington Heights.
    5. These tests will only be completed once. If you choose to do a subsequent egg donation, the carrier map screening and psychological evaluation will not be repeated.
