Egg Donation Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take to be matched with the intended parents?

Once we receive your completed application, it can take as little as a few weeks.

How much will I earn if chosen as an egg donor?

Starting compensation for first time egg donors starts at $10,000 and can go up to $30,000 or more for experienced egg donors.

How long does it take to complete the egg donation process?

The matching process generally takes a few weeks. Once you have been chosen as an egg donor, a cycle takes approximately three to four weeks.

During a two-week period, you will need to come to the clinic three to four times for ultrasound monitoring and blood tests. These appointments generally require a 15 to 45-minute visit.

You will begin a series of injections that range from five to ten days depending on how your body reacts to the medications. The day that you are scheduled for the egg retrieval, you will need to be at our clinic for approximately two hours. Throughout the cycle, most donors are able to continue their work or school schedules.

Will I need to give myself shots?

Yes. You can choose to self-administer injections or you may come to the center so a nurse can administer the shots. The shots are time-sensitive and must be completed at the same time each day with no exceptions. If any injections are missed, the process will be canceled.

How will I know if I am accepted as an egg donor candidate?

A simple blood test, ultrasound and urine sample will be collected. Depending on these results, we will inform you of your eligibility.

Will it impact my fertility or deplete my eggs?

No. The egg retrieval process does not have an impact on your future ability to have children. Women are born with approximately 2 million eggs. Each month during menses, a group of eggs begins the maturation process. 

Each month, the body selects only one egg for ovulation with the remaining eggs being absorbed by the body. Fertility medications “rescue” some of these excess eggs that the body would have ordinarily discarded.

Helping recipients realize the dream of having a child through the gift of egg donation or surrogacy.
