Hey girl, did you know that the egg donation process can only take a month?
It’s true! Donating eggs isn’t some long, drawn-out process (like trying to leave a bad first date). Once we let you know that you’re good to donate, you can often get started with the egg donation process and get that compensation check in just one month. How’s that for efficient?
Before you dive right into our egg donor pool, you’ll want to know how things work at our Austin egg donation center. Here’s a little bit of info about donating your eggs with us.
The 4-step egg donation process
Applying is the first step, but don’t worry, we make it easy.
It’s time to introduce yourself, but it’s not like when you’re at some awkward networking event. Just fill out your egg donor application and wait to hear back from us. We can’t wait to meet you!
Congrats! We’ve accepted your application. Now what?
We’re going to put you to the test now, but it’s not as intimidating as it sounds. You’ll just have some physical and mental health screenings and a pregnancy test to make sure you’re ready and a good fit.
We knew you’d be a great egg donor candidate. Let’s start the process.
Your doctor will prescribe medications called gonadotropins to tell your ovaries to produce and mature those eggs. During this time, you’ll have a few appointments to monitor your progress during this step of the egg donation process.
Your eggs are ready, so let’s go get them!
Once your doctor sees that your eggs are mature on ultrasound, you’ll get ready for the last step: the egg retrieval. Your doctor will use a tiny needle to remove your eggs. The procedure only takes about 15 minutes and you won’t feel a thing, thanks to sedation.
“I was surprised at how quick and painless the process was.”

Questions? We’ve got answers
It’s never good to make a big decision without doing a little research. Before you sign up to donate your eggs, you’ll want to know what to expect. Here are some of our most frequently asked questions about egg donation.
For our egg donors who complete a full cycle and have multiple eggs retrieved for our clients, we offer industry standard egg donor compensation of $6,000.
Should we need to cancel the cycle through no fault of your own, you will still receive $500 for your efforts. There might be multiple reasons for a canceled cycle, some of which may be due to the recipient of the eggs.
The amount of time it takes to be chosen for a cycle varies for every donor. Once an intended parent has chosen your profile, the screening process takes about six weeks to complete. Your retrieval is usually three to four weeks after the start of injections.
You will take medications/hormones through subcutaneous injections. Your donor coordinator will give you an injection training and make sure you’re comfortable administering your own injections.
There is no evidence that donating your eggs will cause problems with your future fertility.
