Become an Egg Donor

 

 

Thank you for considering egg donation. What a wonderful gift to give to someone who wants to build their family but, would not be able to otherwise!

Many women desperately want a family but, cannot get pregnant with their own eggs because of a variety of fertility issues. These infertility problems can be the result of age, hormonal imbalances, poor egg quality, being a carrier of a serious genetic disease, a history of cancer or unknown causes. A woman with these fertility problems is usually able to successfully carry her pregnancy without any issues, and give birth to a healthy baby. By donating your eggs for her to create an embryo with her partnerís (or a donorís) sperm, you are giving her the opportunity to experience motherhood and have the family that she desperately desires.

Same-sex male couples will need donor eggs to achieve a pregnancy. You may be instrumental in helping them become parents.

Compensation for Your Donation

You receive a very generous compensation for your time and effort. Once you pass screening and your first cycle is successful, you could be approved to do up to 6 donation cycles. Your compensation is paid very quickly after each donation cycle.

Comprehensive Health Screening and Examination

As part of the donor screening process, you will receive a full physical exam, testing to determine your reproductive health, and genetic screening to see if you are a carrier for any inheritable conditions. This information could give you valuable insight into your health and how you should approach planning for a family of your own.

Accommodating Your Schedule

We understand busy schedules and will make everything as easy and convenient for you as possible. Your schedule matters to us!

We have many recipients using our in-house donors and we can generally start the process very shortly after screening is complete.

Preserving Your Fertility

PREG also offer our donors the option to freeze your eggs for your own use once you have successfully completed 3 egg donation cycles. This service normally costs women up to $10,000. By having your healthy eggs frozen and stored for your future use, you can be confident in your ability to have children of your own later without worrying about the years creeping by or the biological clock.

Why donate at PREG vs. other donor programs?

There are many reasons to donate at PREG over other donor programs.

  • Your generous compensation is processed very quickly after each donation cycle.
  • Appointments are conveniently scheduled at either of our four locations.
  • Youíll get a comprehensive medical examination and screening that will provide valuable medical insight into your health.
  • After three donation cycles, youíll be eligible to freeze eggs for your own use in the future.
  • Youíll have the satisfaction of knowing that your donation has given another woman the option of being a mother.

A Letter with Love: First Time Egg Donor Writes to Recipient

To the New Family,

Maybe writing you a letter is not typical of this experience, but then, Iíve never been one to follow the norm. ☺ I want you to know that I am SO excited that I get to be a small part of your lives for this one moment. Although I think of both of you all the time, I have found that through this process I feel the most connection with the future (or maybe already!) mom. So, it is to you that I write now, grateful that you trusted me to give you this incredible gift. I promise I did everything in my power to make sure these little baby eggs were as perfect as they could possibly be for you, and I know you canít wait to see the fruit of that effort turn into your perfect little baby girl or boy!

In just a few days now you are going to be a mother, and I will have the lifelong honor of knowing that I was able to be a part of making that happen for you. That thought has been on my mind ever since I first received the phone call telling me that somewhere out there a couple had chosen me to help them fulfill their dream of becoming parents. In some ways, I still canít fully believe that I get to do this, that I get to be the reason you are able to be a mom!

Years ago, I had friends who found difficulty in conceiving a child together. As I read her words in her blog, seeing the struggle of her heart as she so desperately wanted to be able to bring a child into her world, my own world was changed. At the time, I had no idea that one day life would bring me to the other side of her struggle, but when I think about this entire process I picture her struggle when I think of you. Though you likely have not taken every step she did and you are a very different person, I know in my heart that you, like her, are meant to be a mother. This child is meant to be yours. I donít believe in fate, but I do believe that this small piece of me was always meant to be a piece of you. Next week I wonít be losing anything, but finally giving you what was rightfully yours.

When I think of the future this beautiful baby will have with your family, I can only feel that he is so lucky to have parents who wanted him so much. To know what you did, what you sacrificed, how hard you prayed for her, will only be the tip of the iceberg in realizing just how much she is loved. If there is just one thing I would tell him, one thing I want her to know, itís that you, his mother, could never love him more and that no other person on this earth besides you will ever love her the same. To have you in his life means that he already has the best gift the world could possibly bring to her. That little baby is so blessed.

I know that you have my entire medical history. Youíve seen pictures of me as a small child. You know the color of my hair and eyes and skin. Maybe any more information about who I am doesnít really matter, but I do want to share just a little bit of me with you. I am a bookworm. I love to read and I love to learn. I excel in science and English, but find little interest in math or history, though I still always manage to get that all-important A! ☺ I adore music and I listen to everything from classic rock to electronic to folksy acoustic music. I like to stay active. I run and hike and twist myself into knots during yoga classes. I love to laugh and find so much happiness and joy in the simple things in my life. Most importantly, I cherish the people I love and would do anything for them.

I wish for you and your new family a lifetime of laughter, of cuddles and kisses and happiness. I know you look forward to so many firsts for this sweet baby that youíre going to have soon, and I know that you will cherish every one of those moments more because of what youíve been through to bring your child into the world. I hope you know that whenever you cross my mind, I will think of each of you with so much love and excitement for the future that you have together. Your family is such a beautiful one and I am eternally grateful to be able to help you make these moments a reality.

With so much love, Me
