Egg Donation Controversy in the News? Get the Facts on Donating Your Eggs

An important part of becoming an egg donor is doing your research. Finding the right egg donor agency is essential – you’ll want to work with an agency where you’ll receive the care, attention and support you deserve. Myths and misconceptions about egg donation are often circulated – and they’re still unsubstantiated.

Of course, each egg donor is different, with unique reasoning to donate and differing expectations for the experience, which is why Egg Donor America works to dispel major myths and misconceptions for potential donors.

Myth #1: Egg donation causes cancer
No definitive studies have demonstrated a link between egg donation and cancer. There are also no definitive studies that demonstrate a link between egg donation and infertility. We encourage prospective egg donors to discuss any concerns they may have about long-term health risks with their egg donation agency and the fertility clinic they will work with during the donation cycle.

Myth #2: Egg donor compensation isn’t transparent
Egg donors are advised to work with an egg donor agency, especially with an agency they researched and communicated with pre-cycle. Compensation for an egg donor outside of a reputable agency can vary greatly.

At Egg Donor America, a typical egg donor fee range is $4,000 to $10,000, and where a donor falls in that range can depend on a few different factors.

For first-time egg donors or those considering becoming an egg donor, the process can seem overwhelming. Egg donors dedicate their time and energy to helping someone else build their family, and while they are well compensated for these efforts, it can still feel like walking into the unknown. Working with an agency that is experienced in supporting donors and intended parents alike is essential. We invite prospective egg donors to contact Egg Donor America with any questions or concerns you may have.
