An Egg Donor's Story

I was inspired to donate after a friend gave birth after receiving an egg donation. Alternative Reproductive Resources was recommended by an acquaintance. I discussed the situation with my husband, who was a little hesitant at first. But once he met our friend's little girl, he realized what an amazing gift my egg donation would be. I have donated three times, and am on the waiting list to make a final donation before I begin to focus on starting my own family.

Once Matched

Once you are matched with an Intended Parent, your donation cycle begins and usually goes as follows:

  1. We check your availability to ensure that this cycle will work with your life and your schedule.
  2. We inform you of the location of the fertility center and their process.
  3. You schedule your first appointment at the fertility center where they medically screen you to make sure you are healthy and ready to donate.
  4. The fertility center will provide you with a calendar of your medication dosage, a list of potential doctor's appointments and approximate egg retrieval date.  
  5. We will provide you with an attorney to represent you for all legal agreements.

The entire matching and cycle process usually takes around 2-4 months and donors are compensated between $7,000 and $10,000 for their time and effort. If you have any questions or would like any further details, please Contact Us.
