What it’s like to be an Egg Donor?

Posted in: , 12/07/2020

Choosing to become an egg donor is one of the most selfless acts any woman can do. As an egg donor, you are given the opportunity to help bring new life into the world as well as help create a family. Your choice to become an egg donor will mean so much to an individual or couple who has dreams of starting a family, but you must be aware of the entire egg donation process before you begin.

If you’re considering becoming an egg donor, you might be questioning what the process entails—  How does the screening process work? What is the retrieval like? Is it time-consuming? You are not alone! We are often asked about the experiences of an egg donor and what to expect in the process. 
While egg donation can be lengthy it is also a very rewarding experience. A quick google search about all things egg donation can only share so much until you experience the gift of giving yourself or hear about the experience from a previous egg donor. 

Giving the gift of life is a feat that Intended Parents don’t take lightly. When you donate your eggs you are making a dream come true and your Recipients have a tremendous amount of respect and gratitude for your contribution of life.

Not only does egg donation provide a priceless gift to the intended parent(s), but egg donors are also compensated for their time and commitment to the egg donation process.
If you’re considering egg donation—or want to understand what the process is like for an egg donor— below we have chosen to share the article from Healthline to provide insight on a previous egg donor’s perspective throughout the donation process.



Fertility Clinics We Have Worked with in 2017


Sign In



Traditional Cycle

In a traditional cycle, one recipient is matched with one donor for one cycle. If a successful pregnancy is not achieved and all normal embryos have been used, the recipient is eligible for a second cycle with no agency fee.

Shared Cycle

In a shared cycle, two or more recipients will share eggs from one cycle with one donor at one clinic. Each recipient pays an agency fee and legal fees. Shared expenses include donor fee, donor insurance, and donor travel (if applicable). Medical expenses are determined by the clinic. This option is not subject to our free rematch policy unless specifically outlined in the agency agreement.

Frozen Eggs

We work with some clinics that offer frozen eggs. The donor choices are limited. If you are interested in frozen eggs, please contact us. This option is not subject to our free rematch policy.
