  • How do I apply to be an Egg Donor and what are the qualifications?
    Please click HERE to visit our page discussing the qualifications and the application link.
  • Will I be able to have Children of my own after Egg Donation?
    Yes. A normal female has a pool of about 400,000 follicles (hence eggs) by the time of puberty. From these, only 400 will reach maturity and be ovulated. This leaves approximately 399,600 unused. By ovarian stimulation, we develop extra eggs that would otherwise be destroyed. This explains why the normal pool of ovarian follicles is not depleted by egg donation.
  • How long does the Donation Cycle take?
    Once an egg donor is in cycle, the process is quite short, approximately 6 weeks. However, before beginning a cycle, an egg donor must be “selected” and this can sometimes takes several months.
  • Do I have to take time off school or work?
    You will need to take off 1-2 Days for your Medical Screening. You will need to take off 1-2 days for the Retreival. Both of these trips are paid for by the IP's.
  • Will I have to pay for anything?
    No, the IP's cover all medical costs and travel costs for your donation cycle.
  • How much will I be paid?
    Egg donors are compensated for their time, dedication and effort. Fees can vary based on if you are a first time donor or repeat donor. Egg donors with advanced degrees or other charicteristics can be compensated at a higher rate.
  • Can I donate my eggs if my tubes are tied?
    Yes. The aspiration of eggs occurs before the eggs are released by the body. Therefore it is irrelevant as to whether an egg donor’s tubes are tied.
  • Will I undergo surgery?
    No. Eggs are retrieved vaginally. There is no surgical cut. For the egg donor's comfort, the procedure is preformed under IV sedation. It is required that the egg donor have a companion to take her home as she is not allowed to drive after the egg retrieval.
