Thank you for considering egg donation. It is a wonderful gift to give to someone that wants to become a parent, but lacks the healthy eggs to do so. It can also provide you with many benefits as well.
Many women who desperately want a family cannot conceive a child with their own eggs because of a variety of fertility problems. These infertility issues can be the result of cancer, age, hormonal imbalances, poor egg quality, being a carrier of a serious genetic disease, or unknown causes. A woman with one or more of these fertility problems is usually perfectly able to successfully carry a child in her uterus, give birth to a healthy baby, and be a wonderful mother. By donating your eggs for her to create an embryo with her partner’s (or a donor’s) sperm, you are giving her the opportunity to experience motherhood and bring a healthy child into the world!
Of course, gay male couples will always need donor eggs to conceive and you could be the key to their dream of parenthood.
You receive significant compensation for your time and effort. Compensation varies based on your nearest donation center’s program and the number of donation cycles you go through, but is at least several thousand dollars and can be much more for donors who complete multiple cycles. If you pass screening and your first cycle is successful, you could be approved to do up to 6 donation cycles based on the judgment of the center’s supervising clinician. On top of this, you can receive up to $500 for referring a friend who successfully donates her eggs.
You can complete your frozen egg donation cycle in just two months. With a “fresh” donor program, there could be a 6 to 9 month delay until you can complete the donation and be compensated. With MyEggBank, once you are screened as a donor, you can immediately start your donor cycle, complete it within 2 months and receive your compensation.
With “fresh” donation, you would need to coordinate your donation cycle, and appointments, around the recipient’s schedule as well. With MyEggBank, your schedule is the only one that matters and our donation centers work hard to schedule your appointments around your busy schedule.
Some donation centers also offer to freeze your eggs for your own use once you have successfully completed 3 egg donation cycles. This service normally costs women up to $10,000. By having your healthy eggs frozen and stored for your future use, you can be confident in your ability to have children of your own later without worrying about the “ticking biological clock.”
We know that for many, the journey to conceive can be long and expensive. We started MyEggBank with that in mind and are proud that conceiving with MyEggBank frozen donor eggs typically costs a patient 50% as much as conceiving through fresh egg donation. Our pricing is transparent and we also offer financing through a strategic partner.
There are considerable advantages to donating to MyEggBank, as opposed to traditional donor egg programs:
