Florida Surrogacy and Egg Donation: Is Surrogacy Right for Me?

Myths and Facts About Egg Donation

Women who donate their eggs play a vital role in helping intended couples become parents. If you are interested in being part of creating a family for those who cannot conceive on their own, you can donate your eggs. You may have questions or have some misconceptions about egg donation and we want to make sure you have the correct information, especially when there is so much information available through social media and the internet.

Are women who donate their eggs only in it for the money?

Women who decide to become an egg donor do not do it for financial gain. While it is true that egg donors are generously compensated for their services, they also have an obligation to be dependable and commit to the entire egg donation process.  As an egg donor, you can earn compensation between $7,000 to $10,000. To qualify, we look for healthy females with proportionate Body Mass Index (BMI) who are between 21 and 31 years of age of all ethnicities and religious backgrounds. There are time commitments, medical screenings, and tests that an egg donor needs to adhere to. We believe that egg donors receive personal and emotional satisfaction and joy by helping others to create a family.

Will egg donors have eggs left if they want to have a child?

Women are born with one to two million eggs and over the years the eggs will die naturally. A woman’s body cannot generate any more eggs throughout the years. An egg donor will provide 10 to 20 eggs per donation cycle, which can happen more than once.  After egg donation, women are still fertile, so she can get pregnant and have her own child even after donating their eggs. Egg donation will not complicate future fertility. In fact, donating eggs is safe with no related significant health complications. We recommend discussing your options with a health professional to discuss any potential side effects that may occur with egg donation.
