You’ve given your best, now let’s discuss egg donor compensation
Women tell us that egg donation has opened doors for them to travel, supplement their income, or fund educational goals. You should be rewarded for your time and the commitment it takes to complete a donor egg cycle. Our Austin fertility clinic paves the way for you to receive egg donor compensation that reflects your act of service.
There are two levels of egg donor compensation
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.
Understanding egg donor compensation
To prevent the unethical use of compensation to recruit egg donors, fertility centers such as ours strictly adhere to guidelines set by the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM). The two most important issues are: how much a fertility clinic should offer as egg donor compensation and how often a woman should donate in her lifetime.
Here is the exact wording, established by the ASRM Ethics Committee.
- Compensation should be structured to acknowledge the time, inconvenience and discomfort associated with screening, ovarian stimulation and oocyte retrieval.
- Excessive payments to donors require justification and sums upward to $10,000 are not appropriate.
- Programs should limit the number of times a woman may undergo retrieval procedures purely to provide oocytes to others.
Our Austin fertility center physicians and staff want to make sure that you understand the process and risks
