Answers to Frequently Asked Questions

Well-educated, physically and mentally fit women between 21-28 years old are perfect candidates for first-time egg donation. Repeatedly proven egg donors (women whose eggs have successfully resulted in a child) may donate until 33 years old. In order to meet the initial donating requirements, all candidates must be tobacco, drug, and STD-free.

For a more detailed explanation of egg donor requirements, review our in-depth article “Becoming an Egg Donor: Are You a Candidate?”

Egg donor applicants must be screened by a physician and approved as qualified candidates before physical donation begins.

Applicant assessment involves non-invasive testing, including but not limited to: drug testing, psychological evaluations, medical history examinations, questionnaires on professional and educational history, ultrasounds, and bloodwork.

Once approved, donors begin a regimen of medications to stimulate production of multiple mature eggs. The self-administered shots are relatively pain-free after the first few injections.

Egg retrieval is performed under light anesthesia, with most women returning to their regular daily activities within 24 hours. Normal side effects include light bleeding, abdominal pain or cramping, and constipation.

Donors do not sell their eggs; selling eggs under any circumstance is illegal. They are compensated for the time and effort spent undergoing the egg donor process.

Compensation can range between $5,000 - $7,000.

Altruistic women just like you ensure an infertility diagnosis isn’t the end to our patients’ aspirations of having children and becoming parents. While financial compensation is a component of egg donation, the emotional rewards of giving the gift of life far outweigh the monetary value.  

We provide all funding for your egg donation; you are not required to pay for any testing, fertility treatments, or donation. You will not incur any fees or costs, and you will receive various genetic and reproductive tests worth an estimated $2,500. These tests will not only serve as a guide to your general and reproductive health, but also prove invaluable if you decide to have a family.

Young, healthy women who wish to join our donor program may also consider freezing eggs for their own future use. Egg preservation through freezing offers peace of mind to those unsure of when they want to have children, yet know they wish to experience pregnancy and being a parent later in life. To learn more about your options, please call us or schedule a consultation with your primary care physician.

Prerequisite screening can be completed in six weeks depending on your personal schedule and physician appointments.

Yes. Egg donors are allowed a maximum of six donating cycles before they reach 33 years old. 

Donors must meet the necessary legal requirements for working in the US before submitting an application to our egg donation program. If working in the U.S. through a government-issued visa, please contact us to determine if you are eligible.

We currently do not sponsor visa applicants; however, we do work with some Agencies who specialize in medical tourism. In these rare cases, the compensation for time and effort is paid to the donor by her Agency.

You may roam as much as you wish after you are approved as an egg donor. Please notify your clinic’s physician and nurse of your upcoming trip so they can coordinate schedules.

While there is currently no link of Zika virus transmission to oocytes, please alert your nurse if your vacation plans involve (or have involved) an out-of-country visit to a Zika-affected country or territory. If you suspect infection or have traveled to one of these countries, your egg donation will be deferred a minimum of six months.

Surrogacy and egg donation are very different.

During egg donation, eggs from donors are retrieved during a simple outpatient procedure; the eggs are cryogenically frozen and stored until a recipient selects them for use in donor egg IVF.

Surrogacy involves transferring an already fertilized egg(s) to a woman’s womb, which she then carries to term and delivers the baby.

Egg donor screening and pre-qualification for egg donation limits the possibility of complications. Risks involved are similar to any other health procedure.

If you are concerned or have further questions regarding possible complications, we recommend consulting a physician before becoming an egg donor.

Currently, research has not found a definitive link between being an egg donor and cancer.

Egg donors are not held liable nor do they have parental claim over children resulting from their donated eggs.

Non-disclosure egg donors have made a choice to not have their personal identity disclosed by CCB, at the request of a donor conceived off-spring. An ID Disclosure egg donor is willing to have CCB give their name and last known address to a donor conceived adult at the age of 18.
