Become an Egg Donor

Becoming an egg donor is not an easy decision to make. But once you have, you will always know that you helped a couple fulfill their lifelong dream of having their own family. This is a joy that will last, for both you and the recipient of your donated eggs, a lifetime.

Egg Donor Application

Donor Qualifications

Women between the ages of 21 and 30, from any ethnic background may qualify for our anonymous egg donor program.  A woman may donate a maximum of six times.  Upon completion of a cycle, you will be financially compensated for your time, effort and inconvenience associated with the donation process.  Of course, the sense of fulfillment you'll receive from renewing an infertile couple's sense of hope is priceless.  With your help, their dream of having a baby could finally come true.

Donor Process

Basic Steps for Egg Donation

Step One - To initiate the screening process, we would have you complete a two part application online.  This application will allow us to determine if you qualify for our egg donor program and enable us to begin the process of screening to see if you are a suitable candidate for egg donation.

Step Two - Once you have completed the application online and have been qualified to continue, an initial consultation will be scheduled with a Nurse Coordinator.  During this visit, the donation process will be discussed in detail. In order to complete the medical portion of the donor application process, a variety of medical tests including a psychological evaluation will also be scheduled.  Some of these medical tests must be performed at specific points throughout your menstrual cycle and for that reason, may require more than one visit.  There will be no cost incurred to you as you complete the screening process, or applied to your insurance.

Step Three - After all testing is completed, reviewed and approved by the Egg Donor Team you will be a part of our donor roster.  Our recipients are given a password to access our secure website to view your profile online, or you will be given the opportunity to donate immediately for the frozen egg bank.  Again, no costs will be incurred to you once you begin your donation cycle.

Step Four - Once the egg donation cycle begins, you will be given medications for up to 12 days to stimulate multiple egg production in your ovaries. At the same time, the recipient's uterus is being prepared through medications to receive the resulting embryos.

Then, at a time determined by the physician, you will be given IV sedation and your eggs will be retrieved via transvaginal ultrasound. The egg retrieval will be performed at our office.

Step Five - Once the eggs have been retrieved, your portion of the egg donation process is complete.  You will need to call with Day 1 of next menses to schedule Day 3 ultrasound to insure that ovaries have returned to their normal state.

The anonymous egg donation process, from initial application to egg retrieval, may take up to three months to complete if you are matched with a recipient.  The initial screening tests can be arranged to accommodate your schedule.  However, it is important to note that during the stimulation phase (Step Four) of the cycle, you may need to be seen in our offices every one or two days in order for the Donor Team to monitor your progress.  Blood work will be taken and ultrasounds will be performed to check your hormone levels and visualize the number and size of your egg follicles.  These monitoring visits are extremely important.  Not only do they ensure your safety throughout the process, they also provide essential information that will help us maximize the success of the cycle.

Donor Testimonials

"I would have to say that being a donor has been one of the most fulfilling experiences of my life, besides being a mother of course. Having a son of my own, I know how special being a parent really is. I cant imagine being told that I could not have a child of my own. I decided to be a donor to try and help someone else have the child and family that they have been dreaming of. The staff at RMA really made me feel special and as if I were family. I received a letter from the couple I helped and it brought tears to my eyes. I can not describe how good if makes me feel to have had the opportunity of helping a couple complete their family."

"Being a donor is one of the best decisions I could have made for myself. I had such an amazing support team behind me, without them I don't think I would have been able to accomplish it. The doctors and nurses truly made me feel special and one of a kind."

"Family is everything. In my life I have always been surrounded by family and the idea that I can give that experience to a woman who would otherwise not have it is amazing. From first donation to last I have felt love and care from everyone involved at RMA. I would urge all potential donors to not make the decision to donate lightly. It is a process and can get pretty intense but overall if your head and heart is in it you will come out on top. Donating has given me another proud chapter to add to my life."

"I am an egg donor and have been through three complete egg donor cycles. I can’t explain the feeling I have once I finish a cycle. It’s a beautiful gift I was happy to offer for those in need. This is better than any materialistic gift can offer, this gift is “Life”. I go back because I know, once I go through the clinic, I’m taken care of. RMA is great at working around my busy schedule, answering questions, and help with any concerns I might have. It can get busy, but the staff are very kind and patient, guiding me through every step. I love that they speak to you as a person, not just another patient. It is also reassuring knowing they offer insurance during my cycle in case there was an emergency. Once it’s time for the retrieval, I get excited knowing that my gift is one step closer to helping the family that needs it most. I leave with so many happy emotions, I know it was worth it."

"Being an egg donor was a wonderful experience. Having children is such a defining moment in life, and I felt so incredibly lucky to be able to share the gift  of my ability to bare life with families that could not. It was incredible to help couple become parents. The staff, nurses and doctors treated me with the utmost respect, care and confidentiality. I felt informed and well instructed in the process, and when I had questions, they were literally a phone call away."
