Egg donation creates the possibility of parenthood for hopeful parents otherwise unable to conceive on their own, and in choosing to become an egg donor, you’re providing someone a beautiful opportunity through a compassionate act of kindness, while being provided compensation for donating your eggs.
From a big picture perspective in life, an egg donation cycle doesn’t take up all that much of your life (on average, it’s a two to three month time commitment per cycle), but as one egg donor explained recently, it isn’t an easy walk in the park. In fact, it’s time-intensive, filled with various medical appointments and procedures (learn more about screening, outside monitoring, and egg retrieval), as well as requires obligations and responsibilities to remain healthy so as to increase the chance of a successful outcome for your hopeful parents. For all of these reasons, the compensation for donating your eggs is provided to cover your time, effort, inconvenience, discomfort, and dedication required throughout the duration of an egg donation cycle.
“Following my egg donation cycle, I was left feeling proud of my ability to help a couple become the parents they’d always dreamed of being.”
Compensation from donating your eggs varies from cycle to cycle. As a first-time egg donor, you can expect compensation of $8,000-10,000. Thereafter, as an experienced candidate, you can expect compensation of $10,000-15,000+ per cycle. In addition to the compensation you are paid, your hopeful parents are also financially responsible for your cycle-related expenses, including all your medical costs, travel costs, medical insurance, and attorney fees.
“The egg donation process was a significant, life-changing experience.”
Over the years, most egg donors matched to donate have explained that their initial decision to donate had a financial component, but that once the process was under way, they discovered the true depth of their donation and the significant impact their donation had for a hopeful family. Time and again, we are told that the donation process became life-changing, both for them as well as for the hopeful couple.
While we cannot anticipate how you may feel following your own egg donation cycle, our hope is that we’ve prepared you thoroughly for the egg donation process, and through careful reflection about the endeavor you’re about to begin, as well as a thought-provoking conversation with your physician and psychologist on screening day, you’ll gain a deeper understanding of the opportunity you’re creating for yourself, as well as for your hopeful couple.
