The first doctors appointment

There really is no need to be alarmed or concerned about your first appointment – or any of the appointments that follow for that matter! During the first appointment the doctor will take your full medical history, discuss the egg donation process with you in detail, and begin the routine screening process. The screening will involve taking a blood sample to test for certain conditions – something that the doctor will explain to you at the time.

It is highly likely that you will have a discussion regarding managing contraception, particularly if you have either a coil or implant in place. It is also likely that you will be put on the Pill so that your cycle of treatment can be easily managed. You will need to have an internal scan to check that there are no underlying problems with your ovaries or womb, and vaginal swabs will be taken to rule out any infection.
