How Egg Donors Are Screened in Colorado
At Fertility Source Companies, our potential new donors undergo a complete physical exam, lifestyle assessment, mental health screening, and genetic testing to ensure they are physically healthy and mentally prepared to donate their eggs. A personality profile is also part of our screening process.
We go a step further and evaluate the potential donor’s commitment level, ensuring each donor is able to complete the egg donation process from beginning to end. Next, we screen for any legal issues with a background check, ensure the person is fertile (i.e., the ability to produce eggs), and perform blood tests (for genetic abnormalities, drug use, and diseases).

Egg Donation FAQs for Intended Parents
Yes, if you are planning for IVF with a donated egg, both you and your partner must undergo blood work and your partner will have a semen analysis.

Additional testing may be required based on your age, genetic, or medical history.
All egg donors are screened ahead of time for a wide range of conditions and health issues that could potentially impact the potential for a successful pregnancy. As intended parents, all you have to worry about when finding an egg donor is whatever personal criteria you have in mind, such as personality traits, educational background, or physical characteristics.

Why Become an Egg Donor in Colorado
The act of donating eggs is a generous act of kindness that can be very rewarding. Helping a person or a couple struggling to have a baby is the obvious reason that most people decide to donate their eggs, but there are many other benefits. Not only are egg donors generously compensated for donating their eggs, but they also receive free screening tests, such as health and fertility evaluations, legal protection, and compensation for personal expenses, such as travel costs. In addition, during the egg donation process, some donors may discover that freezing their eggs is beneficial for future pregnancy plans.
Egg Donor Requirements in Colorado
Fertility Source Companies maintains very high standards when it comes to egg donor requirements. Each donor is screened to ensure they have a healthy reproductive capability, that there are no genetically inherited diseases in their family history, and that they are physically and mentally healthy.
Our donors are evaluated to ensure they don’t smoke or take drugs and they must have a schedule that is open and flexible to accommodate the appointments necessary for the egg donation process. Age makes a difference when it comes to healthy reproduction, our donors must be between the ages of 21 to 29 and have a healthy weight. Learn more about egg donor requirements.
The Egg Donation Process in Colorado
During the egg donation process, hormonal medications are given to induce multiple egg development in a single ovulation cycle. Next, ultrasound images are taken to guide the fertility specialist as the eggs are retrieved – via a gentle suction process – from the ovarian follicle. The donor is sedated before the procedure begins to ensure there is no pain involved. Transferring the eggs to the recipient is performed in a separate procedure (i.e., in-vitro fertilization) after the egg is fertilized in the lab.
Egg Donor Pay & Compensation in Colorado
Fertility Source Companies ensures that our egg donors are fully compensated for their time, dedication, flexibility, and expenses in the remarkable role of giving the gift of a family to those who are struggling to conceive. There is a base compensation for egg donors that varies based on location, ranging from $5,500 to $8,000 for first-time egg donors. After donating, repeat egg donors typically see an increase of $500 - $1,000.

Egg Donor FAQs
Some states where egg donors are in high demand, such as California, may pay slightly more. However, in general, egg donor compensation typically doesn’t vary that much from state to state.
Potential candidates can be disqualified from becoming egg donors for smoking, using drugs, and having certain health issues (e.g., genetic disorders, fertility problems, etc.). They may also be disqualified if they use certain types of birth control, such as Depo-Provera shot, hormonal IUD, or implant birth control. The inability to commit to the time required to donate one’s eggs is another disqualifying factor.
The amount of egg donor compensation/pay can vary, depending on your geographic location and whether you are a first-time egg donor. The range of egg donor pay ranges from $5,500 to $8,000 for first-time donors.
