We aim to provide you with a transparent look at the egg donation process, so here is an overview of what to expect.
An egg donor is required to complete 4 pre-screen evaluations, schedule all appointments ahead of time, arrive at all appointments on time, follow medication instructions, and be responsible and dependable. Additionally, you will have 4-6 monitoring appointments and the egg retrieval.
We will help you find a local clinic for your monitoring, and all expenses will be covered by Donor Nexus. You will self-inject medications for approximately 10-12+ days. Each egg donor must understand that this process is to be their number one priority.
We offer both one-on-one egg donation cycles and frozen egg banking.
In a one-on-one donation, you will be matched with one set of intended parents who will receive all of your eggs produced. You will be working with the fertility clinic of the intended parents choosing. If you’re local to their clinic, you will be seen there for all your appointments. If you’re not local to their clinic, we may need to fly you out once for your medical screening and again for the duration of your medication up until egg retrieval. Depending on the intended parent's clinic, they may allow you to be seen at a clinic local to you for some of your appointments. All travel expenses will be covered by Donor Nexus.
We partner with HRC Fertility in Newport Beach for all of our frozen egg banking donations. Since our San Diego egg donors are local to Newport Beach, you will be seen here for all your appointments. Before we consider you as a frozen egg banking donor, we will have to review your AMH and genetic screening results. Once you complete your egg retrieval, your eggs will be frozen and stored at HRC Fertility. Typically, your eggs have the potential to be distributed amongst three to four sets of intended parents.
Donor Nexus offers competitive egg donor compensations starting at $6,500* for first-time egg donors. The compensation increases with each subsequent donation.
*Compensation is variable and will be higher for those who are approved into our premier program.
We are donor advocates throughout the entire process, providing world-class care and support to our lovely San Diego egg donors! We hope you found the information on this page helpful. We aim to provide all potential donors with an honest and transparent understanding of the process.

Warning: Egg donation involves a screening process and not all potential egg donors are selected and not all selected egg donors receive the compensation amount advertised. As with any medical procedure, there may be a risk associated with egg donation. First, an egg donor must agree to begin the egg donation process and sign a legally binding contract. The donor is required to receive specific information on the known risk of egg donation. Consultation with your doctor before entering into an egg donor contract is advised. [Ca. Health & Safety Code 125325(a)] In addition, a summary of the egg retrieval procedure must be given to the egg donor before there is a binding contract. [Ca. Health Code 125325(b)]
