What if I have an IUD or a contraceptive implant? Can I donate eggs?

If you have an hormonal IUD, such as Mirena or Skyla, or a contraceptive implant, such as Implanon or Nexplanon, you will not be able to participate as an egg donor, unless you have it removed. If you are accepted into our program, you would need to agree to have your own physician remove the IUD or implant prior to our medical screening. While in the program you may use another form of contraceptive such as birth control pills, the patch, Nuva Ring or a non-hormonal IUD (Paraguard). As a first step, we’d recommend you apply online to see if you meet our medical requirements. If you pass this phase and are invited to an interview, you can discuss with your coordinator whether it’s worth having the IUD/implant removed.
