EGG DONATION AGENCIES ARE EXPENSIVE
Commercial egg donor agencies typically pile on extra charges. In the United States, donor agencies charge upwards of $10,000 dollars to help you find an egg donor. These fees are completely unnecessary!

At IVF1Match, there are never any egg donation agency fees. You are responsible for compensating your egg donor at a rate that you decide on with your donor, before you begin – no hidden fees or charges.

Who needs Donor Egg IVF
It is now possible for those who may not be able get pregnant on their own to successfully become pregnant and deliver a baby thanks to a technology called oocyte donation or egg donation. This technology can benefit several groups of patients, including those with:
- Premature ovarian failure
- Occult ovarian failure
- Advanced maternal age
- Failure of other Treatments
- Maternal genetic abnormalities
Premature Ovarian Failure or Premature menopause: Egg donation can be used successfully for this group of patients. These are women who, for a variety of reasons, have entered menopause at an early age (under age 40, at times in early 20s). Just as in patients who have gone through menopause, these patients usually do not have functional eggs remaining in their ovaries. In some cases, a person may not have ovaries at all, as some are born without ovaries or may have had their ovaries surgically removed for various reasons.
Occult Ovarian Failure: These are patients who still have monthly periods with evidence for ovulation, but whose eggs are very unlikely to produce a pregnancy. This group is said to have decreased ovarian reserve, and can only be diagnosed by ovarian reserve testing. This group is the largest population needing egg donation.
Advanced Maternal Age: As age increases, the ability to conceive decreases and risk of miscarriage increases. This is due to a decreased number of eggs remaining in the ovaries and a decreased potential of those eggs to produce a viable pregnancy. This is true even if the patient has not been shown to have abnormalities on ovarian reserve testing. From inspection of pregnancy rate data, after about age 35, egg donation is more successful in delivering a healthy baby than In vitro Fertilization (IVF) with a person's own eggs.
Failure of Other Treatments: Occasionally, a couple will choose to use egg donation if they have attempted multiple other treatments without success. Egg donation is most commonly used for patients who have failed in vitro fertilization (IVF) cycles.
Maternal Genetic Abnormalities: Rarely, a patient may have a genetic or chromosomal abnormality that they do not want to pass on to a child. This is less common now since preimplantation genetic testing (PGT) is available. However, egg donation may still be used if a problem is known to be hereditary but the exact gene mutation or problem is not known.
LGBTQ+: Many LGBTQ+ individuals and couples utilize donor egg IVF to grow their family.
An egg donor can be someone who is was previously known or unknown to the recipient couple. A known egg donor can be anyone who is not closely related to the partner who will be providing the sperm. An egg donor can be related to a partner who is not providing sperm. Sisters, nieces, cousins, or even daughters from previous partners are acceptable candidates to be a known egg donor. If a couple does not have a suitable known egg donor or does not feel comfortable with a known egg donor, they can try to find an unknown egg donor.
There are many resources for finding egg donors. Many of our patients are choosing to recruit their own egg donors by placing advertisements in local newspapers or by placing signs up at local colleges or beauty salons. Some of our recipients have found potential egg donors on the internet, while others will use an egg donor agency (though this is a very expensive method). IVF1 maintains a large database of young women who are interested in becoming egg donors for our patients.
If you decide to recruit your own egg donor, the most important thing to be aware of is that anonymity in egg or sperm donation is no longer possible. Any child born from egg donation will carry the donor’s DNA. It is now possible, because of the popularity of DNA testing services such as 23andMe and AncestryDNA, for an individual to find relatives. Therefore, an egg donor could identify your child through such testing and online family trees. Likewise, your child could find the identity of a donor in the same way later in life. If you are comfortable with the fact that complete anonymity is not possible, when trying to advertise for a donor you should still do it in a way that preserves your privacy as much as possible.
Here is an example of a well crafted ad: Nice couple seeks young woman to be an egg donor. Must be under 25 years old. Compensation will be given. Apply at ivf1match.com. Use the code name “baby1”.
By using a code name (be sure to choose your own), the donor applicant does not know who you are, and other individuals will not know who you are. When the donor applies online, we will know that this is a donor responding to your ad by the code name.
We will review the information the donor completes online. If the egg donor candidate seems acceptable, then we will notify you of her donor code and you can go online and review the questionnaire. You can then choose whether you want to use this egg donor applicant or wait for another to respond. If an acceptable egg donor applicant is not chosen by the recruiting recipient couple, we will ask her if she is willing to donate eggs for another couple in our practice. If she agrees, we will change her designation in our database from “matched” to “available.”
Initial Screening Of An Egg Donor
The initial questionnaire that the donor fills out asks about several aspects of her life:
- Work experience
- Medical history
- Reproductive history
- Family Medical history
- Sexual practices
- Infection risk
- Psychological history
- Social habits (use of tobacco, alcohol, drugs)
- Physical characteristics
- Previous egg donor experience
When an egg donor applicant is chosen for further screening, they are asked to come to the office to meet with us. At that time, we will go over their initial application and discuss anything that may be unclear. We will review the process of egg donation, what will be expected of them, and review the risks and side effects associated with the treatment. If they are still interested in donating eggs, we will begin medical screening.
Medical Screening Of An Egg Donor
The medical screening includes:
Assessment of Ovarian Reserve
- Day 3 Estradiol and FSH levels
- Anti-mullerian hormone (AMH) level
- Transvaginal ultrasound for ovarian volume
- Antral follicle count
Testing for Transmissible Diseases
As of May 25, 2005, the FDA is requiring significantly enhanced testing for all reproductive tissue donors including egg donors. This involves a more extensive medical history, a more extensive physical exam and a wider array of tests for infectious disease.
- Hepatitis B
- Hepatitis C
- HIV /AIDS
The donor must have these tests performed as part of their initial screening for donor eligibility. They will also undergo repeat testing shortly before the egg retrieval. A potential egg donor may be declared ineligible at any point during testing.
Testing for Hereditary Problems:
- Chromosome test (karyotype)
- Comprehensive genetic carrier screening panel
If the egg donor applicant passes the above tests, then they will be acceptable to use as an egg donor.

He is a very professional and good doctor. the whole clinic is very nice. all the staff are amazing. The doctor operated on me for endometriosis and I got pregnant during the second IVF. we have a wonderful 1 year old son. thank you doctor we still have an embryo, I think I will definitely come back to you in a year or two.
I honestly can’t praise this company enough. Dr. Randy Morris bedside manner is absolutely amazing, his staff professionalism and customer service is also amazing. Your experience with this company will be nothing but perfect. From the initial call to the receptionist. To speaking with the nursing staff, billing, etc. everyone wants to help you with family planning. No matter what my outcome is, I know I’m with a co that will make sure I have the best chances. Thank you to Dr Randy Morris and Staff a bunch!
Amazing staff. They made us feel like family. They cried when I called to tell them the birth of our daughter. Starting round two next month. Simply the best. They care!
Thanks to Dr.Morris I am holding today my little dream girl. I don't have enough words to express how thankful I am to him and everyone working in IVF1 Naperville. Highly recomend Dr.Morris and his clinic to everyone looking for real professional help and attitude!
Dr. Morris is by far the best fertility doctor! When I transferred to IVF1 from my previous fertility doctor, he read all my medical records in depth. Never once did I feel stressed or unsure of what was happening. The entire staff there is so nice and make you feel so comfortable. It was so easy to schedule appointments, get medications, or ask a nurse a question. My calls were always returned within 20 minutes. I highly recommend IVF1! Dr. Morris made it possible for us to get pregnant!
Dr. Morris and staff were very friendly. Dr. Morris was very informative and patient with answering all questions I had. We were uncertain on the options and next steps to take and Dr. Morris explained all the details and options we have. Excellent staff and a great doc.
I’m so grateful to have been referred to Dr. Morris and his team! I’ve spent the last month or so working with the team and they’ve made what is naturally a hard process both mentally and physically as comforting and easy as possible. Dr. Morris’s success rates speak for themselves, but what I want to let everyone know is that he is equally comforting. A special thank you to Jocelyne, Pam and Barbie, these three women on his staff from front desks to RNs really have made the experience an extremely positive one. PS. My cousin who referred me to Dr. Morris has a smart, healthy and beautiful baby boy who he helped bring into this world!
The staff is amazing here. I’m in the middle of IVF and had an issue with a medication and they went above and beyond to make sure everything was done to continue our journey (on the weekend no less); truly above and beyond. The staff are very caring and professional. Definitely recommend Dr. Morris and this amazing practice.
I don't even know where to start...THANK YOU! Thank you for giving us our son. We went through a year of IVF. Although there may have been things I didn't want to hear (chances of pregnancy, factors out of our control, etc.) it was important to hear the truth and know what our chances were. The staff was always great with us and they were very patient. They really have everything figured out and what the best options out for outcomes. I never felt pressured to make certain decisions and always felt well informed. Again, I can't thank Dr. Morris and all his staff for everything!!!
