 How to Find an Egg Donor

How to Find an Egg Donor

Starting your search to find an egg donor may feel a little overwhelming at first, and you're likely going through many emotions as you begin.

There are many egg donation agencies out there, and many clinics also have an egg donor database. The benefit of working with with an egg donation agency like Circle Egg Donation, is that we will help you choose an egg donor, and then support you for the duration of your journey. We'll work with your IVF clinic of choice, and coordinate all steps of the process. It's why we're the best egg donor agency!

Here are the key steps in your egg donor search:

First, you’ll create an account for access to Circle’s donor database. You’ll be able to browse profiles of potential donors and see which ones catch your eye. Many intended parents begin by looking for certain physical traits they’re seeking in their child (such as hair or eye color), which we make sure donors clearly capture in their profile photos. It may be a little daunting at first, but you’ll get more confident as you go - and our team will always be available to offer expert guidance.

Next, you can delve deeply into an egg donor profile. This is an in-depth profile she submits describing her personality, interests, background, etc. It will also note if a woman has 'proven fertility' - meaning she has given birth to a healthy child, or her donated eggs have led to successful pregnancy for other intended parents. By the time you move on to the next step, you should feel very comfortable and familiar with the candidate.

The Circle team is very enthusiastic about ‘known egg donation’ - meaning we encourage the intended parents and the person donating eggs to be open with their identity and stay connected with each other - from matching to pregnancy and beyond. Occasionally, however, you’ll see an anonymous donor profile. We understand that donating eggs is a very intimate procedure, and some egg donors and intended parents have good reasons for wanting to protect their identity. We respect and support this decision.

Whenever you’ve settled on a potential donor that you feel connected to, just let your journey coordinator know. They’ll help you set up a Skype call, so you can get to know each other even better. Then you might have an in-person meeting before you make the ultimate decision. The whole process is very flexible, and depends on what you’re comfortable with.

How Circle screens potential egg donors

Egg donors who work with Circle need to meet a variety of medical, psychological, and demographic screening requirements to make sure they’re a healthy reproductive match for your family.

Generally speaking, our egg program donors are women between 21 and 29 years old. They’re required to have a Body Mass Index (BMI) lower than 28, and must also be a citizen of the US or Canada. Egg donors can have no more than one occurrence of the same type of cancer in their family history. (This excludes non-genetic cancers like leukemia and lung cancer.) They also cannot have any family history of serious heart disease or heart attacks under age 55, and cannot have a history of psychiatric hospitalizations. Finally, some education after high school is required to donate eggs.

Circle actively encourages egg program donors of all racial and ethnic backgrounds to apply. After all, the Circle family is incredibly diverse. We work with intended parents from all backgrounds - single women, LGBTQ+ and straight intended parents, and domestic and international couples alike. We try to find donors that contribute to this vibrant diversity, so you can find the perfect match.

How much does egg donation cost?

Egg donation can cost anywhere between $25,000-$30,000, exclusive of IVF clinic fees. An egg donor's fee can also vary, though most of our egg donors cost between $9,000-$10,000. In some instances, an egg donor may be compensated higher if she's an experienced donor.

To offset some expenses of the surrogacy process, Circle Surrogacy is committed to keeping costs as low as possible through strategic partnerships and financing options for LGBTQ+ and heterosexual and individuals and couples.
