I have donated twice with Lucina, and I had a great experience both times. I admit that their screening process took a while the first time, but I was grateful to learn about my genetics and once I got those results, everything moved pretty quickly. My coordinator Rachel was super organized and made sure I had plenty of notice for the days I needed to travel. Her communication along the process was proactive and consistent. The retrieval itself was in San Diego and both times was pretty uneventful, although I got a little nauseous the first time when I woke up. It’s not an actual surgery with stitches so after I finished, I went to the hotel to relax for the rest of the day and had a quick appointment before heading home the day after. Super easy and rewarding!
