Flexible Programs, Tailored to Your Unique Needs

Within our fresh egg donor cycle, we provide additional options to further tailor the program to best fit your specific circumstances and wishes with the options listed below.

Anonymous, Semi-Open, or Open »

The majority of egg donations are anonymous, however, we are happy to facilitate open or semi-open donations when both parties agree. 

When opting for an anonymous egg donation*, only non-identifying information will be shared for both parties in the contract. The intended parent will typically only view the donor’s profile through our online egg donor database. 

When opting for an open or semi-open egg donation, the intended parent(s) and egg donor negotiate on the terms, whether that be contacting the egg donor for medical reasons only, the chance for the offspring to meet the egg donor if the child chooses, or to send photos of the child as they grow. 

We are proud to offer flexibility within our programs, providing the egg donor and the intended parent(s) with the opportunity to address their desires. When browsing egg donor profiles on our database, the PDF profile includes the donor’s response on whether she is open to meeting the intended parent(s) and/or offspring in the future.

*Please note that although our team adheres to the highest standards to maintain donor and recipient confidentiality when facilitating the cycle, with advancements in commercial genetic testing, we counsel our egg donors and intended parents to understand that we cannot guarantee permanent anonymity in the future.

Zoom Meeting With Egg Donor »

Within our fresh egg donor cycles, we offer Zoom meetings for you to get to know the egg donor prior to confirming the match, as long as the egg donor agrees to the meeting. To facilitate the meeting, we will collect a non-refundable $500, which will be put toward our cycle fees if you move forward with our agency.

To ensure confidentiality and a positive experience for all parties, Donor Nexus allows Zoom calls to be facilitated between Intended Parent(s) and designated egg donor only. We do not allow translators, consultants, friends or family members to participate. If the egg donor needs or requests a translator, one will be provided through the agency. Please contact Donor Nexus with any questions.

This does not apply to our frozen donor egg cycles.

Putting an Egg Donor on Hold »

If you would like to “hold” an egg donor for one week, you can do so by paying a $500 non-refundable hold fee. If you elect to move forward with the cycle, the $500 will be put towards your agency fee. 

This does not apply to our frozen donor egg cycles.

 

Fresh Egg Donor Cycle FAQ

How many eggs do I get? »

The average number of eggs retrieved in a fresh cycle is 24, with 21 being mature, usable eggs. The amount of mature eggs retrieved varies, however, it's common for intended parents to receive between 15 and 21 eggs, typically resulting in 3-4 viable embryos. Many patients choose fresh one-on-one cycles with the hopes of being able to freeze additional embryos to try again for a genetic sibling in the future.

Can I place a hold on an egg donor? »

If you would like to “hold” an egg donor for one week, you can do so by paying a $500 non-refundable hold fee. If you elect to move forward with the cycle, the $500 will be put towards your agency fee. This option does not apply for our frozen donor egg cycles.

How long does the process take? »

The length of time is dependent upon a few factors, but on average, we find from match to egg retrieval is 3-5 months. When using a fresh egg donor, the donor must first complete her prescreening evaluations before beginning the cycle. This may take up to three months. Once the donor is medically cleared by your clinic, legal contracts must be completed before the egg donor can start stimulation medications. The stimulation phase lasts for about 12-14 days. We work closely with your IVF clinic to determine cycle dates as soon as legal clearance is issued.
