Egg Donation FAQs for Intended Parents
While it may seem tempting to “remove the middle man” and post “Egg Donor Wanted” ads on social media or elsewhere online, doing so makes it more difficult to identify properly screened egg donor candidates. When you try to handle the process of finding an egg donor on your own without any support or guidance from an agency, you are at a much higher risk of having a poor egg donation experience. Partnering with a professional egg donor agency, such as Fertility Source Companies, gives you peace of mind, as you’ll know that any qualified candidates have sailed through rigorous physical and mental screening processes.
Every intended parent is unique, with their own preferences and needs. Nevertheless, the actual donor selection typically boils down to certain must-haves, such as candidates’ physical characteristics, personality characteristics, and medical/hereditary history.
On average, you should expect to budget for around $16,500, including the egg donor fees and agency costs. Bear in mind, that additional out-of-pocket expenses, like travel fees and cycle medication, may incur additional costs and fees.

The Egg Donation Process
Breaking down the process of egg donation means understanding its specific steps. These include:
- Hormonal medication is self-injected, generally once a day, for about 12 days, to stimulate multiple egg development in one ovulation cycle.
- You’ll be subjected to blood and ultrasound tests, to ensure eggs have matured before their retrieval.
- For egg retrieval, performed as an outpatient procedure, an ultrasound probe and a thin needle gently remove eggs from the small fluid sacs called ovarian follicles.
- To help make the egg retrieval process painless, expect to be sedated, remaining in a semi-conscious, 30-minute state.

Egg Donor FAQs
The American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) has established as a guideline that a woman may not donate her eggs more than six times.
Yes, you are allowed to continue working, and in fact, many donors continue working or attending school throughout most stages. Please be aware that you’ll have to miss one or two days for the egg retrieval procedure.
Egg donation is generally considered safe, however, like any other procedure, there are some side effects and risks to be aware of. The main source of risk in egg donation is the usage of hormone injections, which can cause a wide range of side effects, including breast tenderness, moodiness, abdominal cramps, and swelling. Although rare, there is also a risk of developing ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS), a condition characterized by painful ovarian swelling after taking injectable hormones. Before starting the process, your doctor will discuss all potential risks with you, including OHSS.
