Egg donation is a selfless way to give a couple the gift of life. Many couples are unable to conceive because of low quality eggs due to advanced maternal age or cancer treatment therapies. Young women in their prime maternal years are wanting to know more about the egg donation process and benefits. Knowing more about egg donation can make it easier to decide if becoming an egg donor is right for you.
Reasons to Consider Egg Donation
The decision to use donor eggs is not one that is taken lightly. They have typically failed multiple rounds of Conventional IVF.
Couples opt for IVF using donor eggs only after:
- Learning they are unable to have a child naturally, and
- Weighing all critical options carefully before going forward with the process
These individuals have worked tirelessly for years to have a child at a very significant cost - financially, emotionally, mentally, and physically.
Donor Health is Highly Valued
Donors are providing a wonderful gift. Therefore, their health is of the utmost importance. This is one of the reasons why pre-donation testing is so important. Additionally, a donor’s health is continually monitored throughout the donation cycle. When issues arise in compromise of success, these can be addressed immediately. After egg retrieval, there is another checkup just to ensure the donor has completely healed from the process.
Donors Remain Anonymous
Egg donation is done anonymously. Your decision to become an egg donor is your's alone and only the individuals you want to know about your donation will have access to confidential information.
Donors are well compensated for their donations. The amount of compensation vaires among fertility centers. At the world renowned New Hope Fertility Center, donor compensation ranges from $8,000 to $10,000 based upon a number of factors. In the event that the cycle must be stopped due to medical issues, the donor will receive a reduced amount.
