Come Meet California Cryobank

You’ll learn more about our program, complete a few short forms, share your medical history, and have a quick blood draw.

You will also begin working on your personal profile which prospective parents will use to choose their donor.

Doctor Visits

You will meet with our experienced and trusted physicians to help determine your eligibility to donate eggs. You’ll have a basic physical exam, a pelvic exam and an ultrasound of your ovaries to assess your fertility.

Psychological Assessment

Our qualified mental health expert will discuss the potential emotional impact of becoming an egg donor, as well as administer a standard psychological assessment required of all donors.

Genetic Interview & Screening

During the genetic interview, we’ll review detailed information you provide about your family’s medical history, as well as collect a blood sample used for genetic testing to identify a predisposition to certain inherited conditions.

Preparing for the Retrieval

We’ll teach you to give yourself hormone injections to stimulate egg development. The entire process generally takes about 8-10 days and includes a series of physician visits to make sure everything is going smoothly.

The Egg Retrieval

The actual retrieval only takes about 20 minutes. It is performed under a mild anesthesia without any incision or bandages necessary. Afterward, you will rest at the clinic for 1-2 hours and should plan to take the rest of the day off of work. Most people return to school or work the next day.

Go Home and Relax – You’re Done!
Once the retrieval is completed, we will compensate you for your time and effort. Remember, you can donate up to six times. The gift of egg donation is one that will never be forgotten by the families you help create. Thank you!
