***This calendar is an example of a general timeline to help give an idea of what to expect and the level of commitment that's required from an egg donor. Please note, there are many variables that will determine how each phase progresses with each individual journey.
A. IVF Timeline: Planning your donation cycle is a personal decision. Because of the level of commitment this requires, first and foremost, it needs to fit in with your schedule & life responsibilities. This helps to ensure the most positive experience possible. Decide what month you can commit to the process and communicate this with WFC. You can now arrange next steps with the fertility clinic. B. Protocol Training: *the above calendar is showing the next steps & approximate timeline once a cycle has been chosen. At the fertility clinic, you will meet with a nurse to review your medications and guidance on following your medication/ultrasound/bloodwork protocol. At this time, you may also be required to sign the clinic policy consent form. C. Cycle Day 1: On the first day of your period, call the fertility clinic and let them know your cycle has begun. They will give you your step-be-step procotol as it's now time to start your Egg Donor IVF cycle and begin medications, communications, ultrasounds and bloodwork....all the responsibilities! D: Ultrasound & Bloodwork: On average an egg donation cycle is 10-15 days. There may be 6 visits (on average) to the clinic for monitoring during this time. E. Receipts for Expenses: As you get closer to the end of each month, compile any receipts that you've accumulated and send them in for reimbursement. F. Egg Retrieval Day: You've made it! You must have someone drive you to & from the clinic today and have a solid plan to rest for the remainder of the day.
