Choosing an Egg Donor
We want to help you choose a wonderful egg donor! Our goal is to help recipients and recipient couples feel good about choosing the right egg donor for them! We will help to make the process as comfortable and approachable as possible. Whether you are seeking an egg donor to work with your surrogate/gestational carrier or to work with for your own egg donor IVF cycle we are happy to help find you the perfect egg donor!
We have hundreds of donor candidates on file living within the New York City
tri-state area -with more applying daily. Many of our egg donors are willing to travel if the Intended Parent is living outside commuting distance of the NYC Metro area.
We offer anonymous donation for couples and donors that are more comfortable with anonymity. And the process is entirely confidential. Should a recipient have questions to ask a donor candidate beyond the information provided in the donor profile we will forward those questions to the donor and offer the recipient her responses as soon as she replies. We would like to help, in any way that we are able, to create a positive and rewarding experience for both donors and recipients.
Donor Services works with several area IVF programs to recruit egg donors for their programs and we are also happy to work with local recipients or recipient couples that come to us seeking an anonymous egg donor to work with their own IVF physician.
The donors in our Donor IVF Program are between the ages of 21-30 years. Donors go through a thorough screening process before they are accepted into an IVF program. They must be proven to be healthy, both physically and psychologically.
Potential donors will complete questionnaires disclosing information about their family history, personal health history, sexual activity, drug usage, medical background, prescription and over the counter medication taken on a daily basis, child bearing history, educational background, and areas of hobbies, skill and/or interests outside their chosen field.
Medical Screening: Once a couple has decided upon a donor candidate the donor will be referred to the IVF Center where the recipient goes for treatment. The recipient's IVF doctor will perform Egg Donor medical screening. Donors must be screened for Sexually transmitted diseases, hormone levels, Ultrasound scans, various other bloods tests, FDA tests. toxicology, pap smear and cultures, Psychological evaluation as well as specific genetic mutation tests based upon the heritage of the donor
Egg Donor Compensation Payment: Egg donor compensation payment will be made to an attorney utilizing escrow services; after the egg donor has been cleared to cycle by your IVF Physician. The compensation payment will be held in trust until the egg donor undergoes egg retrieval. Once the egg donor has completed egg retrieval, the attorney will forward the egg donor compensation payment to the egg donor overnight.
Egg Donor Complication Insurance: Once the donor has been cleared to cycle by your IVF doctor a policy of egg donor complication insurance will be ordered; to cover the egg donor medically for the process of egg donation. The recipient will pay $200.00 for a policy that will insure the egg donor up to $100,000.00 for the
cycle of egg donation.
**If an egg donor cycle is canceled due to no fault of the egg donor after injectable medications have begun- the donor will be instructed to return all unused medications by the IVF doctor. The recipient would be responsible for paying a greatly reduced egg donor compensation to the egg donor between $500.00- $1,000.00 (depending upon your physician's recommendation) for the donors' time, effort and commitment.
There is no financial obligation to review profiles and to see if we have an egg donor match for you at this time. For more information about choosing an egg donor please contact us today!
Once you’ve chosen an anonymous egg donor that you would like to cycle with, we will forward a matching contract to you to work with that donor. There is a one time matching fee for matching the anonymous egg donor to a recipient. Once the contract and payment have been received we will forward the donors' application and verification of identity materials to the New York City IVF Physician of your choice. Your physician will begin medical screening for the anonymous egg donor.
We guarantee that should the donor prove unacceptable in the any way, that we will work with you to choose a new donor candidate of your choice at no additional cost.
Another Recipient Writes:
"When I finally resigned myself to the fact the only way for me to give birth to a baby was to use a donor's egg my first thought was.... where do I find a reputable agency? I began my search online looking at several agencies. I came across many that seem to create additional and unnecessarily costly steps to an already difficult process. I found most places to be expensive and not personable. I knew I needed to work with someone who would be understanding and sensitive to how important it was for me to find the right donor.
When I found Donor Services it was simple, easy and effortless. I spoke with my doctor and she gave me confidence, she had not only heard of them but worked with them in the past and they were in fact a good agency to deal with. After our initial screening they had us fill out questionnaires and almost immediately I begin to receive profiles of potential donors. Within a few short months we found the perfect donor match! I began this journey skeptical and ended it with a donor's egg who I was more excited about placing inside of me than my very own. I knew her eggs would be viable and would give us the best shot at having a family. We are currently five months pregnant with twins and couldn't be happier. Donor Services made everything simple, effortless and possible for us to have the family we so badly wanted. I will be forever thankful that I got to work with what I believe is the best donor agency in New York City."
