Frequently Asked Question for Egg Donors at Advanced Fertility

What Is Egg Donation?

Egg donation is a form of third-party reproduction that offers young women an incredible opportunity to change the lives of others. Egg donors provide healthy, fertile eggs to couples and individuals who are unable to conceive on their own. This includes patients who are facing certain forms of infertility, same-sex male couples, and single men.

Does the egg retrieval process hurt?

Every patient experiences the egg retrieval process differently. For this procedure, you will be under general anesthesia while your eggs are retrieved by a physician, and may experience some discomfort afterwards. Most individuals are able to return to work the next day, while others may need additional time to recover.

Does donating my eggs affect my ability to have children in the future?

No, the egg donation process has no impact on future fertility.

Is there a height/weight criteria?

Yes. The medications that are administered work best for individuals within a certain weight range.

What are your requirements for donors, and how are they screened?

Egg Donor candidates must be between 21-30 years of age. Once you complete the online application, our Egg Donation team will schedule an appointment to evaluate your overall and reproductive health, genetic history, and psychological stability (all testing is provided at no charge to you). Egg Donors must be physically and emotionally healthy, provide complete medical history on biological family members, and be a nonsmoker with no history of substance abuse. All donors who pass screening meet FDA standards.
