Egg Donor Frequently Asked Questions
We know that you have lots of questions about being an egg donor, as well as our egg donation program, and we are happy to answer any additional questions. Here is a list of our egg donor FAQs.
Does the Egg Retrieval hurt?
The procedure is performed using twilight sedation, and eliminates any discomfort during the procedure. After the retrieval, you may feel slightly groggy from the sedative. You may also feel some mild cramping, similar to menstrual cramps.
Will the Egg Donation affect my future fertility?
The egg retrieval process will not compromise the possibility of you becoming pregnant in the future. You will be working with Board Certified Reproductive Endocrinologists, exceptionally qualified doctors, who will take every step necessary to ensure your health and safety.
Will I have any out-of-pocket expenses throughout the process?
No, the intended parents pay for all related expenses throughout the egg donation process.
How much will I be compensated for an Egg Donation?
Our donors are compensated a minimum of $6,500.00 for their time and commitment during the egg donation process, provided they follow through with the egg donor guidelines and responsibilities.
