Become an Egg Donor
Donate Eggs with Lane Fertility
The team at Lane Fertility is committed to providing the best care possible to our egg donors. We understand the importance of educating all women on their reproductive health, and we make that one of our primary goals while helping a donor through the egg donation process. Lane Fertility’s mission is to make fertility treatments more accessible to everyone in our communities and one of the biggest ways we see this mission through is with our egg donation program. Donating with us helps many more people achieve their dream of growing their family, and you could be an integral part of making that dream a reality.
Our care is personal, informative, and built on deep connections with all of our patients. While donating with Lane Fertility, you will always leave your appointments feeling supported, cared for, and informed every step of the way.
Qualifications to Donate Eggs
Although we screen all of our applicants on a case-by-case basis, we have some general qualifications for our egg donors. These are:
BMI between 18-29
Family and Personal history clear of significant health or genetic disorders
No STI’s within the past 12 months
Egg Donor Compensation
Egg donors are compensated for their time and effort to donate eggs. Egg donors completing an egg freeze cycle with us will be compensated $5,000. Egg donors that are being matched for a fresh donation are free to list their own compensation requirements, but compensation is typically between $5,000-$12,000 per cycle depending on the experience of the donors. Doing an egg freeze cycle is a great way to become a proven donor and increase compensation for future fresh donation cycles.
All of your medications, travel expenses, and office visits are covered by either us or the intended parents that you’re matched with, so the only out-of-pocket expense you will incur is the co-pay for the initial AMH blood draw!
How to Donate Eggs
Our application starts with a prescreen and is completed with a full questionnaire that covers all personal and family health history as well as some general information about yourself, your ethnic background, and your reason for wanting to donate eggs. The questionnaire takes approximately 45 minutes to complete, and our donor coordinator will reach out once your application has been reviewed.
Get an AMH blood draw, a physical exam, and an antral follicle count ultrasound
You will get your AMH level blood draw done at a lab local to you. You will have a phone or in-person appointment with Dr. Lane, who will review your medical history in more detail and perform an ultrasound of your ovaries to determine your antral follicle count. Getting these preliminary tests do give us and you an insight into your own fertility and your potential success as an egg donor. Lane Fertility is committed to educating our egg donor candidates on their own fertility during their egg donation journey.
Create Online Profile
We will create your profile once you’ve completed your questionnaire, AMH blood draw and antral-follicle count ultrasound. Your profile will be password protected and shared with intended parents interested in choosing you as their donor.r
Complete a psychological screening
All egg donors are required to complete a screening with a psychologist. This will be done over the phone and will be completed either when the donor is matched directly, or shortly before beginning an egg freeze cycle.
Get an FDA blood draws, genetic screening, and baseline ultrasound
Before officially beginning your cycle, you will need to get tested for communicable diseases, complete a toxin screen which includes screening for nicotine and alcohol, being a carrier for a genetic disorder, and a baseline ultrasound. All of these will be completed during your very first appointment when beginning your cycle.
Legal Considerations for Donating Eggs
Egg donation is mostly done anonymously, meaning that the donor and intended parents will be unable to identify each other. In order to help match you with intended parents, we create an electronic profile which is posted on our website. The profile includes pictures and information about your health and family history. The profile is password protected and your name or any other identifying information will never be used.
Upon matching with an intended parent, we will get you in contact with our attorney who will represent you in the creation of a legal agreement between yourself, Lane Fertility, and/or the intended parent(s). This legal agreement is meant to protect the privacy of all parties and further outlines your compensation, duties and rights once you become an egg donor.
About Shared Donation
Lane Fertility conducts frozen egg donation cycles. This type of cycle allows us to match you more easily with the intended parent(s), which means that you will be able to donate eggs sooner. The eggs retrieved as part of your cycle will be frozen and may be assigned to more than one intended parent (shared). This makes it more cost effective for individuals or couples to undergo egg donation, while at the same time not creating an excessive number of embryos that may go unused.
