3 Questions to Ask Your Egg Donor Agency

Now that you have decided to use an egg donor to help build your family, it's time to pick an agency that can assist you and your partner through this process with as much ease and care as possible. Choosing an egg donor agency can feel like a really big step for some couples because so many options are available and it’s hard to tell which is the right one if you've never had to make this decision before.

Egg Donor America understands that couples and individuals in need of an egg donor already face enough stress from decision making, which is why we've collected a list of three key questions to ask an egg donor agency before you decide to work with them.

How is an egg donor recruited?

Egg donors with Egg Donor America undergo a thorough application and screening process in order to ensure that they are both physically and mentally prepared for their role as a donor. We ask that they meet our list of egg donor requirements prior to screenings – this takes place in the initial application stage.

We also ask that a prospective egg donor speak with a trained psychologist to confirm that she understands her role, is ready for it and has the proper motives for becoming an egg donor.

How is an egg donor chosen?

Prospective parents are encouraged to review our online egg donor database as they search for their donor. We realize that physical characteristics such as eye/hair color and height are important, as well as a person’s IQ, but we find that most prospective parents connect with their egg donor from a deeper standpoint as well. Egg Donor America provides any assistance you may need during this time, so please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns you may have as you search for an egg donor.

How is the egg donor compensated?

An egg donor fee typically falls in the range of $4,000 - $10,000, though of course this can vary on a case-by-case basis. Experienced egg donors are often compensated more than a first-time donor.
