Frequently asked questions

How long can the donor remain reserved?

Donors can remain reserved until she is approved by your Fertility Center and, once approved, for two business days.

When are fees due?

All fees are due at the time you sign and execute your retainer with ConceiveAbilities.

What if the donor does not achieve medical clearance from the clinic, or the cycle is cancelled prior to the donor's injection start date?

If the cycle is cancelled before legal clearance, all fees are refundable except for the $375 escrow fee and any travel costs for the donor. If the donor is not medically cleared due to factors not in her control, such as adverse results from a genetics test, she may be entitled to $1,500 in compensation. If the donor drops out of the program or has a positive drug test, she receives no compensation. If the cycle is cancelled after the match has achieved legal clearance but before the donor has started injections, the professional fee and donor compensation is refundable.

Do the fees listed above include medical costs associated with IVF treatment?

No.
