Egg donors help others fulfill their dream of parenthood

The amazing gift egg donors provide supports women with fertility issues, male couples, or single men who would like to build their family with the help of our egg donor agency. For her time and commitment, the donor receives compensation that starts at $8,000 and increases with each Cycle.

 

Requirements for egg donors

The following criteria helps to ensure that egg donors have a positive experience, and gives hopeful parents the best possible chance of receiving healthy eggs.

*Age. Donors need to be between the ages of 21-30.

*Healthy lifestyle. Women interested in egg donation should live a healthy lifestyle free of drugs, smoking, and heavy alcohol use.

*A normal weight range for height. A body mass index, BMI, which falls within 18.5 and 24.9 is required.

*Education. Egg donors should be enrolled in college, have a college degree, or show success in a chosen career field.

*Commitment and Reliability. An egg donation cycle requires consistent commitment and reliability.

*Healthy family history. As certain health conditions are inheritable, there might be aspects of the donor’s family medical history that could disqualify her from donating.

After our egg donor agency has accepted her initial application, the prospective donor will be asked to complete a detailed profile and return it with a variety of photographs. The profile will be reviewed and additional clarification might be requested.

Next, an interview will be scheduled to give us the chance to get to know the egg donor, explain egg donation in greater detail, and answer any questions she may have. After all information is reviewed and verified, she will be posted on our website.

Once a prospective donor meets these preliminary requirements, she’s ready to move on to the next steps.

 

What to expect from the egg donation cycle

Our egg donor agency will make the eight to ten week journey of egg donation as clear and simple as possible.

*Psychological consult. After hopeful parents have selected the egg donor, she will talk with a Psychologist or Therapist who specializes in Third Party Reproduction to discuss issues related to egg donation.

*Genetic screening. Next, the donor will speak to a Genetic Counselor who will review her family health history. A report will then be written with recommendations for appropriate genetic testing.

*Meeting with a fertility doctor. Before a donor begins the egg donor cycle, she will meet with the hopeful parent’s fertility doctor who will discuss possible side effects of medications, procedures, and other important information.

*Health screening. Common screening tests for egg donors include blood work to test for infectious diseases, a genetic test, a pelvic exam, which includes a pap smear, cultures, and an ultrasound, and a urine drug test.

*Legal consult. After the donor is medically cleared, she will then have a consult with an attorney we provide to complete the egg donation contract. Note:  Move legal consult after medical screening.

*Ovulation medications. After the donor has been medically and legally cleared, she will follow precise instructions to self-administer the fertility medication injections, which all use short needles.

*Monitoring. While the donor is taking the fertility medications, she will need to go into the clinic for regular monitoring. Specially trained nurses and reproductive specialists will administer and monitor treatment throughout this process. It is extremely important that the donor keep medical appointments, which sometimes occur daily during the egg donation cycle.

*Egg retrieval. The final phase of the egg donation cycle involves the egg retrieval. An ultrasound-guided needle will retrieve the eggs vaginally, while the egg donor receives intravenous anesthesia. A short period of observation will follow prior to discharge.  

Our egg donor agency welcomes both first-time donor applicants and those that have already experienced the altruistic joys of egg donation. 

 

Egg donor compensation

In addition to the donor compensation (starts at $8,000 and increases with each Cycle) the donor receives for her time, the hopeful parents will pay for all of the donor's related fees, including medical and legal expenses, and travel.

A portion of the compensation will be remitted to the donor when she begins medications, and the remaining balance will be paid after the egg retrieval.

Women who donate feel tremendous gratification and are enabled to do many things with the financial rewards given to them for performing their donor responsibilities.
