Why are Egg Donors Compensated? Is the Egg Donor Compensation Enough?

These questions are often raised by both potential egg donors as well as intended parents. When deciding if being an egg donor is right for you, some donors at first glance may think ”this is an easy way to make a buck.” As an agency, we feel that statement is incorrect.

Yes, we do think that for the time involved versus the amount of perks a donor gets both emotionally and physically, this is a great opportunity. Most donors feel a great sense of happiness when they are able to help a couple build a family. At the time of donation, donors are not planning to create a child of their own so many feel that it is a selfless way they can make a difference for intended parents who just want a child to love.

At Egg Donor Solutions, Egg Donors are compensated between $5,500-$10,000. This compensation depends on their previous cycle history and is compensation for their time during the process as well as the inconvenience, and discomfort associated with screening, ovarian stimulation, and egg retrieval. The American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) has set guidelines for compensation that Egg Donor Solutions and all other reputable agencies abide by.

Egg Donors are motivated for different reasons and there is no question that an extra $5,500+ would make a difference for an egg donor. However, most egg donors find there are other reasons they have chosen to be egg donors.
