Although we are located in Southern California, we work with both donors and recipients worldwide. If you have already established care with another fertility clinic, our egg donors are available to travel to your clinic for the cycle.
This cycle is ideal for patients who have established care with a fertility clinic and are requesting the egg donor to travel to the clinic for a fresh cycle. The cycle package include the donor’s compensation/reimbursement, travel expenses, agency fee, psychological evaluation, legal fees, and temporary egg donor medical insurance.
If you do not have an IVF clinic you are already working with, we partner with a clinic in Southern California to provide our intended parents all-inclusive packages which start at $50,000 USD and include both the agency and IVF clinic fees.
Donor Nexus is proud to offer our Premier Egg Donor Cycle for all intended parent(s) seeking an egg donor with a specific set of desirable traits, such as higher education, rare ethnicities, professional athletes, musicians, or models.
In our Shared Hope Cycle, we match a fresh egg donor to multiple sets of intended parents.
Donor Nexus offers a frozen donor egg cycle. It is simple and can be done at a time convenient to the intended parents. We are able to ship frozen eggs throughout the United States (excluding New York) and internationally. We are happy to help orchestrate shipping to your desired clinic and work with your clinic to ensure all criteria are met prior to shipping.
*Exact cycle price depends on egg donor compensation and location.
We offer in-person or Zoom video 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.
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.
You may register with our online egg donor database to begin searching for your egg donor. You will then receive an email from Donor Nexus with more information about the program you are interested in. We are available for consultations in person, over the phone, or via Zoom.

Our egg donors are young women aged 19 to 30 years that are fit, healthy and happy. They are college students, young working women and sometimes mothers themselves. They are young women who wish to do something to help others. They are young women that believe in Donor Nexus’ mission of providing egg donation to the many thousands that need it. Our egg donors are available to travel to clinics outside of their area for the egg donor cycle.
Donor Nexus does very little advertising for egg donors. Many egg donors approach Donor Nexus on their own when they hear about the program through a friend, family member, or past patient. We have an excellent referral program that encourages egg donors who have had positive experiences with our agency to refer their friends or family members who are interested in becoming egg donors themselves.
Donor Nexus adheres to the absolute highest egg donor screening standards in our industry.
Intake Screening: Prior to the egg donor being uploaded to the database, she completes and submits an extensive application and questionnaire that is reviewed to determine if she would be a suitable egg donor candidate. If the application is accepted, the egg donor candidate’s are interviewed by Donor Nexus either in person, via Zoom, or over the phone. Donor Nexus adheres to all ASRM egg donor requirement recommendations.
Medical screening: Each egg donor completes a comprehensive medical questionnaire and is interviewed and examined by a board certified Reproductive Endocrinologist and Infertility subspecialist. The exam includes both a physical examination and ultrasound assessment of the uterus and ovaries.
Ovarian reserve testing: To ensure that the egg donor will be a top producer of eggs, each egg donor has ovarian reserve testing completed. This testing consists of a blood test looking at Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH), Anti-Mullerian hormone (AMH) and an antral follicle count (AFC). The antral follicle count is a special ultrasound where the examiner counts the number of resting eggs the egg donor has. These three tests allow us to reject any egg donor that is not likely to have a good response to fertility medication, greatly reducing the risk of poor response or poor egg quality.
Genetic screening (as requested by the specified fertility clinic): The egg donor is interviewed by a certified genetic counselor in order to identify egg donors that may have an increased risk for genetic diseases. The genetic counselor then recommends any specific tests needed for that specific egg donor based on her family history and ethnicity. In addition to these specific tests, the egg donor also is screened for cystic fibrosis, spinal muscular atrophy, Fragile-X, and a multitude of other genetic diseases. The results of both the genetic counselor’s report as well as the blood tests are available for review by the intended parents.
Psychological screening: Each egg donor is screened by a licensed mental health professional. This includes an interview as well as an objective standardized written test (usually the MMPI). A summary of these test results is available to the intended parents.
Infectious disease screening: Each egg donor is screened for HIV 1 and 2, hepatitis B, hepatitis C, HTLV 1 and 2, syphilis, chlamydia and gonorrhea.
Drug screening: Each egg donor is screened for drugs of abuse including: opioids (heroine, morphine, prescription narcotics), cocaine, amphetamines and marijuana.
Yes, if you would like to purchase additional testing on your egg donor, we can help facilitate as long as the donor agrees to the testing.
Below are various additional tests you can request:
Yes! Donor Nexus is happy to offer in-person or Zoom meetings for intended parents 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 the intended parent moves forward with our agency.
As part of our Fresh Egg Donor Cycle, we offer a First Time Egg Donor Guarantee. Our guarantee: If your chosen first time egg donor does not pass one of her prescreen evaluations, we will transfer 100% of your deposit onto another Donor Nexus egg donor of your choosing.

Shared Egg Donor Cycles are optimal for those who are seeking affordable egg donation. We match at least two intended parents to a single egg donor. The number of intended parents linked to one egg donor is determined by the IVF physician. This allows the cost of IVF with an egg donor to be reduced by half while still providing the prospective parents with a success rate with the fresh transfer of over 80%.
Frozen Donor Egg Cycles are for those who wish to cycle at a time that is convenient for the intended parent as the frozen donor eggs can be shipped to clinics throughout the USA (excluding New York) and internationally.
Donor Embryo Cycles are for couples or individuals who are seeking donated embryos.
Fresh 1-on-1 Cycles are ideal for intended parents who are hoping for more than two children as the intended parent will receive all the eggs retrieved from the egg donor. Additionally, this is a popular option as it offers a wide selection of egg donors and cycle program options.
Premier Egg Donor Cycles work the same as the Traditional 1-on-1 cycles with access to Premier egg donors. This is ideal for intended parents who are seeking an egg donor with desirable characteristics.
With all of our programs, we collect a one-time global fee. This fee can be paid in up to three installments. We offer a variety of payment options. Please see our ‘Financial Breakdown’ page for more information.
Absolutely! As a third-party agency, we work closely with your chosen local fertility clinic to coordinate your donor egg cycle.
Our frozen donor eggs are located at HRC Fertility in Southern California, one of the leading fertility clinics in egg freezing and thawing, and can be shipped throughout the USA (excluding New York) and internationally.
If you are an international patient or have not established care with a fertility clinic, we are happy to refer you to a clinic in Southern California that we have partnered with.
Once we receive your preliminary forms, completed contract and first installment of funds, we will send your doctor and nurse coordinator an official match sheet. The donor is officially matched only once we have received these 3 items.
Generally, pre-testing is valid for up to 12 months.
Each physician has his/her own age limits when treating patients. Generally, if a patient is over 45 years old, the physician will order additional tests to ensure the patient is healthy enough to carry. The additional testing includes a stress test, EKG, chest X-ray, mammogram, and pap smear. Most of these tests can be completed by your primary care physician.
If you had a vaginal delivery, you need to wait at least 9 months. If you had a c-section, you need to wait at least 12 months. If you are breastfeeding, you must stop breastfeeding and have 2 normal periods before you complete your pretesting.
