Egg donation is a selfless way to help couples who want to start a family but are unable to do so on their own. Your gift will bring immeasurable joy to a couple as well as give you the satisfaction that you were able to help someone else achieve their dreams. Women who are considering becoming an egg donor often have many questions about the process including, “what is the compensation for an egg donor?”
What is the compensation for an egg donor?
Egg donation requires a time commitment as well as the commitment to following the prescribed fertility medication protocol. As such, we compensate donors in the amount of $8,000 for egg donation cycle.
Are there things that can limit compensation for an egg donor?
If the cycle results with eggs being harvested, compensation for an egg donor is paid in full. In the event the cycle has to be cancelled prior to egg retrieval you will be paid a reduced rate.
What is the process for being approved for egg donation?
We have a thorough screening process for all of our potential donors. It is important that the donors be both medically, emotionally and mentally able to participate in the program.
In order to qualify for the program you must:
- Be between 18 and 28 years old
- Be legally able to live and work in the United States
- Have no history of STDs, even if the STD was successfully treated
- Be a non-smoker and free from drug use
- Have no family history of genetic diseases
- Be healthy with a pleasing appearance
- Pass hormone testing
- Be committed to the program
- Take all medication as prescribed including injecting fertility medication
If you fit the above criteria, you will then go a thorough and medical evaluation. Only candidates who pass the testing are eligible to become egg donors.
What happens after approval?
You will be provided with fertility medication and given a dosage schedule. It is important that you take the fertility medication in the amounts and frequency provided to you. Once the cycle begins, you will be regularly monitored to see how your body is responding and to review your progress. Once the eggs have matured to the appropriate stage they are removed in an outpatient procedure. You will have a follow up appointment after the retrieval and that concludes your cycle.
