We’re going to hit you straight: Egg donation requires a serious contribution of both time and effort. But of course, the gift is entirely worth it—both for you and for the family you bless.
We require that our donors go through a psychological evaluation and medical procedures, and ask that they possess a strong sense of commitment, demonstrate integrity and dependability, and have a genuine desire to help an infertile couple or individual conceive a child. In return, we’re here to provide compassionate support to make the process smooth and pleasant, and the experience deeply fulfilling.
Family Inceptions (FI) is a full service egg donation and surrogacy agency that provide services to intended parents looking to grow or start a family. We are in the business of helping families conceive children that are unable to conceive on their own for a wide variety of reasons.
We have intended parents that work with clinics throughout the US who are looking for donors like you.
As a donor you are not responsible for anything financial. However, you must keep your receipts if we need to reimburse you for any reason. An egg donor complication insurance is purchased on your behalf, which covers you for the donation. You will only be held financially responsible if you have started medications and back out of the donation for a non-medical reason.
If the intended parents and donor live in different states, you will be required to travel to their desired clinic. Each clinic might have different out-of-state protocols. For example, some clinics allow out-of-state donors to be screened medically and psychologically and monitored initially by a clinic that is local to the donor. Others are more stringent and ask that the donor visit the clinic for a day so the evaluations can be performed. In these cases, the donor will usually need to spend a night at a hotel near that location.
As the retrieval time draws near it is often necessary for the egg donor go to the intended parent’s clinic for the final week of monitoring (and, of course, the eventual retrieval). We believe that egg donors deserve the best possible experience, which is why Family Inceptions makes all the necessary arrangements for your out-of-state travel.
You will be pleased to know that all your travel expenses will be paid for completely. The average number of days required for a retrieval trip is 5 to 7, so please make sure that your school, work, and family life will fit this schedule: children and pets are not allowed to accompany you.
There are several side effects and risks that may be associated with being an egg donor. Women may experience none to any or all of the following symptoms due to the medications: breast tenderness, nausea, cramping (similar to menstrual periods), headaches, fluid retention, bloating, appetite changes, changes in sex drive and/or temporary stinging where the injection was administered. Your body will self-correct to most all cases of mild over-stimulation within 2 to 7 days post retrieval.
Prior to beginning an egg donation cycle, it is highly recommended that donors thoroughly discuss all potential risks and side effects with the fertility physician they are assigned to work with.
