Understanding the egg donation cycle at Hatch

Although a life-affirming experience that helps loving intended parents achieve parenthood, egg donation can also feel overwhelming if it’s your first time donating or you’re nervous. However, you can rest assured that Hatch works with top reproductive endocrinologists in the country to provide you careful explanations of all medical procedures involved in egg donation. While you’re considering Hatch’s Los Angeles-based egg donation program, here’s a brief explanation of what to expect:

Stimulated eggs that aren't extracted for egg donation would naturally pass out of the body during your menstrual cycle.

The egg retrieval

Your eggs will mature after about two weeks of hormones. Once this happens, you'll return to your doctor's office for the egg retrieval procedure, which takes about 30 minutes. During the egg retrieval procedure, you'll be put under light sedation, and your eggs will be aspirated vaginally with a long needle to remove the possibility of scarring. Soon after the retrieval, you may go home accompanied by a friend. When you get home, we recommend that you take the rest of the day off work.

Upon request, egg donors may be informed about a month after the retrieval if a pregnancy occurred within the recipient parents and/or gestational carrier.
