The cost of egg donation can be variable. The average cost range is based on services, fees and medical expenses. This range includes egg donor compensation, egg donor program fees, the donor egg, IVF costs and fertility treatments and pricing for legal documents, travel and other expenses.
We have three levels of egg donors. Cost is based on experience and background. Read below to learn more.
Preparation and review with IVF Clinic of a comprehensive donor portfolio, mental health assessment, and a three-point background check.

Covers donation-related incidentals, traveling that may be required, and outside monitoring at a secondary IVF center.
Drafting of legal contract between intended parents and donor.

All costs associated with the IVF procedures including medical testing, screening, laboratory, medications, ultrasounds and doctor visits are in addition to the fee structure above and paid directly to the IVF center. A detailed and complete list of these fees can be obtained through your IVF clinic.
Donors can be reserved for two business days. If payment is not received within two business days, the donor will be released back to the database.
Fees are due in two stages: Stage 1: The $2,500 Pre-Approval Fee is due once the Intended Parent(s) are notified the donor has confirmed she is available for matching. This typically occurs within one business day of the Donor’s reservation on the database. This fee of $2,500 is non-refundable, but may apply to up to three donors.
Stage 2: Final program fees are due within two business days of receipt of final invoice. This payment includes Professional Fee, Donor Compensation, Direct Agreement and Donor Expense Account.
The Professional Fee and unused donor fees will roll over to the selection of a new donor. A full Professional Fee refund will be tendered should the Intended Parent(s) decide not to proceed with another donor through ConceiveAbilities.
The above fees apply to all costs associated with the IVF procedure—which include but are not limited to Donor’s initial screening, physical exam, ultrasounds, monitoring, medications, laboratory testing and doctor visits, are separate from the fees detailed above. Please consult with your clinic to obtain a breakdown of these costs.
