At RMANJ we understand that for some patients the path to pregnancy and a positive fertility experience sometimes requires a little help from another woman. It takes a special person to become an egg donor and requires a commitment of time, energy and compassion. It is not an easy decision to make, but once you have made the decision to help another woman you will always know you have fulfilled someone’s desire to build their family.
Although women are born with over a million eggs, only approximately 300 will be ovulated during their reproductive years. The inevitable decline in egg supply with ageing makes egg quantity, sometimes called ovarian reserve, a problem for many women. At the same time, for women, reproductive potential decreases with age, particularly after the age of 35. Women with a decreased ovarian reserve at any age may be faced with the challenge of diminished egg quality. With 20% of women waiting to start a family until after age 35, egg donation may be the right path toward building a family. Finding the right donor egg is a critical first step.
Egg donors are young, healthy women, between the ages of 21 and 31, from any ethnic background who have the desire to help others begin a family. Once you’ve begun the process it can take several weeks from your initial application, health screening, to meeting with the Ovatures team, and matching you to a recipient. Following being accepted into the Ovatures Egg Donation Program, you are welcome to contribute up to six times. While you will be compensated $8,000 for your time, helping another woman become a mother is the best compensation.
