Frequently Asked Questions
Egg donation can make a dramatic difference for individuals and couples attempting to create a family. The process is not complicated, but people often have questions. Pacific Egg Donors and Surrogacy has compiled answers to the questions we frequently hear about egg donors and the egg donation process.
We accept all races and ethnic backgrounds.
Women between the ages of 19 to 31 may qualify for the donor program.
The first step is to complete an online application. We use this application to identify good candidates for our egg donation program.
If you meet the prerequisites, we will contact you to schedule an initial consultation with one of our coordinators. During this meeting, the entire egg donation process will be discussed and all of your donation questions will be answered.
The screening process can vary due to scheduling, but our goal is for you to be screened in three appointments.
There are a variety of tests that are required to fully qualify you as an egg donor. We want to insure that you are physically and emotionally healthy enough to participate in our donor program and eligible to donate healthy eggs. You will be required to take medical tests such as:
• Complete blood work
• Psychological evaluation
• Detailed family medical history.
The donor does not pay any fee or charge. The intended parent is responsible for all costs associated with the cycle.
Egg donors are financially compensated for the effort, time and inconvenience that are related to the egg donation process. We offer a tiered compensation program that is fully covered during the screening process.
Once all of your medical testing is completed and you are approved as a potential egg donor, an online profile will be created. This profile gives intended parents the opportunity to learn more about the personality traits and features of approved egg donors.
No, donating your eggs will not affect your ability to conceive in the future. However, in the month after your donation you will be more fertile.
The American Society of Reproductive Medicine recommends up to 6 donations.
