Frequently we see patients who have undergone premature menopause, survived cancer therapy, carry genetic diseases, or who, because of the normal diminished reproductive efficiency associated with advancing maternal age, cannot produce eggs likely to result in a successful pregnancy. As an egg donor you have the opportunity to fill the painful void that these conditions create in the lives of these patients.
The Donor Egg program is completely anonymous, but requires a dedicated commitment over a period of several weeks. To begin the application process, click here. We will perform a physical exam, obtain blood tests for sexually transmitted diseases, administer an MMPI (Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory), and you will meet our third party reproductive counselor.
With the above screening procedures completed, you will be added to our donor list. A non-identifying profile of you will be available for matching with prospective recipients. Once you are matched you will begin the ovarian stimulation process leading up to the egg retrieval.
The current reimbursement for one cycle of egg donation is $5,000. Egg donors are able to donate once or up to six times.
To be an egg donor you must meet the following minimum criteria:
- Be between the ages of 21 and 33
- Have a BMI of 29 or less BMI (Body Mass Index)
- Be a non-smoker
- Live within 2 hours of our Minneapolis clinic due to the necessity of frequent morning clinic visits at CRM, for vaginal ultrasound and blood tests
