What is Egg Donation?

This term refers to an ART (Assisted Reproductive Technology) process where a person carries a baby conceived from another person’s egg. That person is referred to as an egg donor. Depending on the circumstances, an intended parent or a surrogate might carry this baby.

Egg donors are carefully chosen and must adhere to several legal requirements. Once verified that a person is eligible to become an egg donor, they undergo a multi-step process that involves matching and screening before an eventual retrieval and egg implantation. Egg donors are expected to take certain medications before their retrieval and implantation and attend several doctor appointments for monitoring.

Donor eggs are typically fertilized in a lab before being implanted using IVF or a similar technique. Although this is the typical egg donation roadmap, the exact specifics of your egg donation journey will be unique to you, your intended parent(s,) and your doctor’s advice.

Why Become an Egg Donor with Extraordinary Conceptions?

At Extraordinary Conceptions, we understand that this process is exciting—but also sometimes a bit overwhelming! That’s why we treat all of our egg donors, surrogates and intended parents with respect and care. With us, you can expect every step of your journey, from application to retrieval day, is easy, comfortable and positive.

When you become an egg donor with Extraordinary Conceptions, you will receive dedicated care support from our team. We also offer a generous egg donor compensation starting at $6,000! Apart from your egg donor pay package, you will also be reimbursed for any related expenses (like travel, medical, or insurance costs.) All of that will be covered by the intended parents. You won’t be expected to pay a dime—you’ve contributed plenty already!

What is the Typical Compensation for People who Donate Eggs?

Regardless of location, egg donors never pay for their own expenses and related costs. However, your location will determine whether or not you can legally donate eggs for money. In places like Canada, it is illegal to receive and pay additional egg donor compensation.

In countries like the US, egg donor pay ranges depending on circumstances. First-time donors can expect to be paid $6,000 or more. However, some “higher demand” egg donors earn more. Get in touch with our team to speak about your unique experience and circumstances for a better idea of what your egg donor compensation range may be.

Ready to Become an Egg Donor?

We’re ready to support you!

Extraordinary Conceptions is headquartered in San Diego, California. We have representatives located in Canada, Mexico, Europe and the United Kingdom— but our donors and intended parents are located all over the world! Wherever you are, if you want to make a difference in a family’s life, we invite you to get in touch. Many of our overseas donors love having the opportunity to travel for their screening and retrieval appointments.

During the three to four months of your egg donation process, you may have to follow particular rules. You will be asked to abstain from heterosexual intercourse during this time to avoid unintended pregnancy, as the medications taken for egg donation cause extreme fertility. While receiving injections, you will also be asked to refrain from drinking alcohol or engaging in strenuous exercise.

As you prepare for your application and journey as an egg donor, we invite you to take a look at our testimonials page. It’s a great way to read about real-life donation experiences from other young women who have already worked with us. Seeing their perspective can help give you a better idea of what to expect. When you are ready to officially get started, simply get in touch with our team for a conversation. We are excited to meet you and support you through this life-changing experience.
