Fertility issues can happen to families for a variety of reasons. When a couple is unable to become pregnant due to an issue with eggs, egg donation provides a means for them to have a child. Egg donation is a generous act that can help couples have the children they’ve planned for and dreamt of. If you’ve been thinking about donating your eggs, the resource below can help to provide information on the process and egg donor compensation.
Process of Becoming an Egg Donor
In order to become an egg donor, a woman must pass medical, genetic and mental health screenings. Additionally, she must be able to provide detailed information about her and her family’s medical history. There several criteria that all potential donors must meet before starting the screening process:
- Women must be between 18 and 28
- Have a social security number
- Be a nonsmoker and drug free
- No history of sexually transmitted diseases
- Be a healthy weight for their height
- No piercing or tattoos within the past 12 month period
- Pass hormone tests
- Be comfortable with taking administering fertility medication
Once the screening process is complete, the cycle can begin. Unlike other programs, New Hope’s egg donation program does not require a donor and recipient to sync cycles. Instead, the egg donor’s eggs are frozen and stored until selected and needed by a recipient. This makes the donation process easier for our egg donors.
Egg Donation Process
Once approved, a donation cycle begins with monitoring through the use of blood work and ultrasound. Fertility medications are prescribed so that the body produces multiple eggs. Once those eggs are mature enough, they are harvested during an outpatient procedure. Donors also receive a follow up visit with a physician.
Egg Donor Compensation
Egg donors receive compensation of up to $10,000. The payout for egg donation cycles at New Hope Fertility ranges between $8,000 and $10,000 depending on a number of criteria. Should the cycle need to be halted due to a poor response to fertility medication, the amount of compensation is reduced.
