Once you select a donor with us and before signing a retainer agreement, Creative Love will send the donor for her AMH Test at the expense of the agency. If your clinic does not offer the Counsyl Genetic Testing Creative Love will provide it for you at the expense of the agency. This is a simple DNA test that is completed before moving forward with your egg donor. This test can screen for birth defects associated with over 100 genetic diseases.

Additional Fees (Not Included in our Agency Fee)

Egg Donor’s Compensation

Creative Love Egg Donor Agency, LLC has signed an agreement with the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART) that states that we will abide by the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) Ethics Committee Guidelines governing the payment of egg donors. The guidelines pertaining to appropriate donor compensation specifically state: “Total payments to donors in excess of $5,000 require justification and sums above $10,000 are not appropriate.” Donors will not be compensated over $10,000 under any circumstance.

Travel Expenses (if applicable) – $1,500 – $2,000 Estimated Travel

These costs will be determined by us. We will always look for the best prices for your donor’s airfare, rental car, and hotel accommodations while traveling. Donor’s per diem is $50/day while traveling alone and $100/day when traveling with a companion. All travel expenses will be charged to your credit card that we have on file. No charges will be made until we have talked to you and have received written authorization. You are responsible for the Donor’s per diem fees.

Monitoring Expenses (if applicable) – $1,000-$1,500 Estimated Monitoring

If your donor is not located within reasonable traveling distance from your physicians, she will be monitored at an assisted reproduction facility near her home.  We will recommend the facility and clear it with your physician, who will also communicate with the facility.  You will pay the fees directly to the facility via credit card or other arrangement.

Special Notes

  • If a donor cycle is cancelled by the RE prior to the egg retrieval based on the donor not responding well to the hormone injections we will match you with a new donor.  The donor will  be compensated $500.00 as a compensation of gratitude. If you chose to work with a new donor we will wave the agency fee.  You will still be responsible for the new donor’s compensation, all testing and legal contract.
  • If you complete an egg donor cycle and do not achieve a pregnancy for any reason Creative Love will rematch you with a new donor until a pregnancy is achieved and waive the agency fee.  You will still be responsible for the new donor’s compensation, all testing, legal contract (reduced legal fees),  travel and monitoring if it applies to your new cycle.

IVF and medication costs are not included in this fee schedule. Consult your clinic/physician for an estimate of these costs.
