Thank you for your interest in our donor egg program. Egg donors are absolutely vital in helping some couples have children. By donating your eggs you are providing a gift to these couples that cannot be fully expressed in words. Here is what one recipient had to say about her egg donor experience at ORH.
Thank you Jo, I’m touched by these lovely ladies and what they have to say on their donor profiles.
Their kind words and thoughtfulness to give the gift of life and a baby to couples like my husband and I who so badly desire to have children and struggle to do so have given such an unbelievable gift. I can’t thank them enough each profile makes me cry with gratitude. Please pass this message on to your donors because people like myself can’t thank them enough.“
To be an egg donor at Overlake Reproductive Health, you must be between the ages of 18 and 30. You must also meet our basic requirements for egg donors. You will be asked to complete a personal and medical history questionnaire, and to participate in medical and psychological screening. The purpose of this careful examination is two-fold:
- To ensure your safety
- To determine that you are medically and genetically appropriate as an egg donor.
Your participation, and the information you provide remains completely confidential. There is no cost to you for any of the screening tests, nor are you required to have health insurance coverage to participate in egg donation.
Information about Being a Donor
For a better understanding of what is involved see Questions & Answers about Being an Egg Donor.
Compensation for egg donors varies depending on if the donor is proven or not. Proven donors receive a higher compensation due to the fact we have a much better idea how they will respond to the medications. Donors receive half their compensation on the egg retrieval day and half at the subsequent post-op (usually ~2 weeks later).
Current compensation ranges from $7,000 to $10,000.
Comfortable and Safe Anesthesia
We are able to offer a level of anesthesia safety that ensures your comfort during the egg retrieval procedure. We are one of only a few programs in the Pacific Northwest that uses M.D. anesthesiologists.
