What You Need to Know about Egg Donation
Egg donors who fit the specifications provided by intended parents undergo a medical procedure to remove a certain number of eggs from their body. These eggs will either be frozen or fertilized in a laboratory, depending on the requirements of intended parents. Frozen eggs are usually preserved for use at a later time. Fertilized eggs are implanted into the uterus of a mother or surrogate.
The medical procedure a donor must undergo to donate eggs is a minor one, lasting only a few hours. Aftercare for such a procedure is minimal, and most donors recover within 24 hours. At Dreams of Parenthood, we provide aftercare services to ensure the donor’s physical and mental well-being.
If you have further questions about this process, reach out to our team.

Be an Egg Donor
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is requiring human cell, tissue, and cellular and tissue-based product (HCT/P) establishments to screen and test cell and tissue donors for risk factors for, and clinical evidence of, relevant communicable disease agents and diseases. The agency is amending the current good manufacturing practice (CGMP) and quality system (QS) regulations that apply to HCT/Ps regulated as drugs, medical devices, and/or biological products to clarify the role of the new donor-eligibility regulations in relation to existing CGMP regulations. By preventing the transmission of communicable disease by the wide spectrum of HCT/Ps that are marketed now or may be marketed in the future, the agency’s action will improve protection of the public health and increase public confidence in new technologies. This rule is effective May 25, 2005。
