What can I expect once I’ve chosen a clinic?

While the process can differ from clinic to clinic, typically you will need a consultation with a physician and complete diagnostic testing before treatment can begin. In most cases, this takes just a few weeks to complete. Once treatment is ready to commence, medications will be given to prepare your body for the embryo transfer. Medication and treatment protocols will vary; however in a typical frozen donor egg cycle, the duration from when the recipient begins medication to prepare her uterus until the day the embryo transfer takes place is about a month.
