Egg donation is one of the most selfless acts a woman can do to help a couple achieve their dream of becoming parents. In addition to the emotional rewards, egg donor compensation accommodates donors for their gift.
Who Is Eligible To Donate Eggs?
There are several requirements all potential donors must meet before proceeding with egg donation. Egg donors must be:
- Between 18 and 28 years old
- In good health
- Non drug users
- Able to live and work in the United States
- Free of drugs with no history of drug use
- More than 12 months away from their last tattoo or piercing
- Non smokers
What Happens During Egg Donation?
All potential donors are screened to ensure they are good candidates for egg donation. The screenings include both physical and emotional evaluations.
Once approved for the program, you will begin a hormone regimen to stimulate your body to produce multiple eggs. This regimen includes fertility medication that you are required to self-inject. A member of our team will thoroughly review the medication schedule with you. It is imperative that you take all medication in the prescribed method at the predetermined time.
When your eggs have reached the desired size and maturity, you will be prompted to take a hormone to prompt and time ovulation. The eggs are retrieved while you are sedated with local anesthesia, in an outpatient procedure that takes about 30 minutes. Your recovery time will be a few hours. Two weeks after the retrieval you’ll meet with a physician to verify you are healing correctly.
Egg Donor Compensation
Women who successfully complete egg donation through retrieval will receive $8,000 in compensation. If a cycle has to be cancelled due to medical issues, the donor will be compensated a lower amount. Egg donor compensation is taxable and is reported to the IRS. Contact your tax professional to find out about the possible tax implications.
