Egg donation is the process by which a woman donates eggs to enable another woman to conceive as part of an assisted reproduction treatment or for biomedical research. We understand what a generous gift you give when you become an egg donor, and we are committed to making your experience positive and rewarding.
There are many reasons why a woman may not have eggs that will lead to a full-term pregnancy. Some conditions that can contribute to egg viability issues include:
- Prior radiation or chemotherapy treatments
- Previous ovarian surgery
- Genetic disorders, or a family history of genetic disorders
- Advanced maternal age
- Repeated failed IVF procedures
- Multiple miscarriages
Known egg donor candidates should be under the age of 30 and in good health. The donor should expect to spend a few weeks undergoing egg stimulation treatments, which include injectable medications that promote multiple egg maturation. The egg retrieval process itself is a very simple and minimally invasive procedure performed at one of our partner fertility clinics.
Some of our basic requirements to be an Egg Donor include:
- Be between the ages of 18-30
- Be a resident of the United States or a permanent resident with documentation
- Be height-weight proportionate (BMI must be 30 or lower)
- A non-smoker and willingness to abstain from drugs and alcohol
