The Egg Donation Process

The egg donation process begins with a privacy-protected online intake application featuring questions regarding your medical, social, sexual, and family history. Once our case managers receive your application, they’ll review it and determine your eligibility. 

If you’re accepted as an egg donor, we’ll set up a mandatory new donor consultation to go through the entire process in detail. We’ll also create your egg donor profile to upload into our secure database so IPs can view it. Once selected, you’ll undergo a psychological evaluation, a meeting with a reproductive attorney to sign a donor contract, and a full medical evaluation.

Next, your fertility clinic will synchronize your cycle with the cycle of the recipient, using birth control and Lupron, a self-injectable medication that regulates ovulation. After synchronization, you’ll take medication to stimulate ovarian activity. You’ll administer the medication on a set schedule for about ten days while your clinic monitors your egg follicles. 

After this, you’ll get what’s called a “trigger” shot. This final injection preps your ovaries and egg follicles for retrieval and occurs about 34 hours before your scheduled procedure. During the egg retrieval procedure, you’ll be sedated while a doctor uses a transvaginal ultrasound to guide a thin aspirating needle to your ovaries to collect the mature eggs. The procedure takes about 30 minutes, and most donors return to their regular activities the following day. Once the process is complete, you’ll receive your financial compensation in the mail.

Egg Donor Pay & Compensation in Southern California

Donor compensation depends on various factors, including whether or not you have donated your eggs before, your location, and certain high-demand characteristics. First-time donors can expect to be paid $8,000.
