At Fertility Source Companies, our primary goal is to support our egg donors and IPs during every stage of the egg donation process. Our experienced team of caring professionals helps singles or couples in Chicago, Rockford, Belleville, Dekalb, and other Illinois cities.
Finding an Egg Donor in Illinois

Choosing an Egg Donor in Illinois
Fertility Source Companies has one of the largest egg donor databases in the country. IPs start their family planning journey by searching our database to find suitable candidates.

Egg Donor Costs & Fees in Illinois
The cost of egg donation varies depending on the geographic location of egg donation centers and other factors (e.g., the specific services you choose). There's an initial agency fee of $8,500. The donor must also be compensated; the donor fee is approximately $8,000, but this fee may vary from one donor to another. Additional egg donor fees can range from between $1,000 and $9,000, depending on other expenses such as travel and out-of-pocket costs. Furthermore, a retainer for legal consultation is required and is paid directly to the attorney. Optional genetic testing represents an additional egg donor fee.
How Egg Donors Are Screened in Illinois
Thoroughly screening each of our donors is one way we ensure that only qualified individuals get entered into our egg donor database. We do an initial screening assessment to ensure donors meet each of our requirements; including a personality profile and lifestyle assessment. In addition, several detailed screenings are conducted, including:
- A psychological evaluation
- An analysis of the level of donor commitment
- A thorough health evaluation (including a fertility test)
- A blood test (to detect any unknown physical, sexually transmitted, or genetic disorders, and to determine if drugs have been used)
- A criminal background check

Anonymous donations were historically the norm, but since the development of at-home DNA tests, and the realization of the need for the donor-conceived person to have access to their genetic identity, anonymous egg donation is considered obsolete today.

The Egg Donation Process
During the egg donation process, you will self-inject hormonal medication to stimulate the development of multiple eggs in one ovulation cycle. Next, an ultrasound probe (i.e., a device that uses soundwaves to create images) is used to aspirate the eggs from the ovaries for in-vitro fertilization (IVF). During the process, you will be sedated to ensure there is no pain.

In general, first-time egg donors are paid between $5,500 and $8,000 based on their location. Repeat egg donor pay is typically an additional $500-$1,000.
