Donating with the Eggceptional Donor Group is an honorable and rewarding experience. We allow intended parents to choose a donor that best fits the physical and mental characteristics that are most important to them. We seek donors who are healthy, non-smoking women, between the ages of 19 and 31. We accept applicants all over the United States. Donors are selected on the basis of scholastic achievements and physical and mental health. All donors must be free of sexually transmitted diseases and meet FDA guidelines.
The Eggceptional Donor Group is here to educate you about the donation process, so you will be confident in your choice of donating and know exactly what to expect. We will be there to guide you every step of the way and answer any questions or concerns you may have. Once you have completed the online application form, we will contact you with further instructions. We look forward to being your guide during this exciting experience.
Once you feel you have a fair understanding of the requirements, please take a moment to complete the initial questionnaire. After reviewing your information, if it seems you would be a good candidate for donation, you will be asked to complete a second, more thorough questionnaire, and we will schedule your personal interview. If you have any questions that have not been answered on the website, we encourage you to call us anytime.
What are the steps involved in donating eggs?
In general, there are six steps to a complete egg donation cycle:
Submit your application to Eggceptional Donor Group.
- Eggceptional Donor Group selects you as a potential donor.
- The Eggceptional Donor Group sets up appointments for your psychological screening and the physical and genetic check ups to determine if you are healthy enough to donate.
- You and the Eggceptional Donor Group negotiate and agree upon the terms of the contract.
- Begin the medical stimulation of your eggs.
- Using mild sedation, the donor’s eggs (oocytes) are removed and prepared for our fertilization. The procedure generally takes 30-45 minutes and once eggs are retrieved, you will be asked to rest for the remainder of the day. You must have someone to accompany you for the rest of the day and a follow up appointment will be scheduled.
What is the compensation for egg donor?
There is no standard amount of compensation for egg donors. However, this amount is decided by the donor and agreed upon by the intended parents. The FDA and ASRM recommend compensation no more than $10,000.
