Egg Donation Questions and Answers
To acknowledge your time and effort associated with egg donation, our egg donors are compensated $7,000 on the day of the egg collection, which is taxable income.
We are always seeking healthy, non-smoking young women with normal menstrual cycles to join our Egg Donor Program. After filling out our initial screening questionnaire, all potential donors must provide detailed information about you and your biological family members’ medical histories and educational backgrounds and complete a medical evaluation which includes a physical exam, pelvic ultrasound, and blood work. A consultation with our mental health counselor is also required.
Your interest in becoming a donor and all evaluations are strictly confidential.
Our egg donor coordinator can help you through the process throughout application and donation.
Many couples are unable to conceive or carry a pregnancy using the female partner’s eggs. Some women may be without ovaries due to a medical condition, may have experienced premature ovarian failure or may not produce quality embryos. Some couples may also want to avoid passing on a serious genetic condition to their children.
Many times, these couples have already been through extensive fertility treatments that were unsuccessful. Or, they may be a same sex couple desiring a genetic connection to their child.
Regardless of the reason, they are very grateful to our donors for helping them overcome barriers to becoming parents.
