Are you a young woman interested in making a meaningful impact while also receiving generous compensation? Consider becoming an egg donor with Fertility Institute of San Diego. Egg donation is a selfless act that helps individuals and couples build their families. To qualify, you should be healthy, between the ages of 20 and 30, and meet certain medical and psychological criteria.

As a donor, you can expect to be compensated for your time and commitment, per donation cycle. The process is carefully coordinated to minimize the impact on your schedule and health, with most donors experiencing only mild discomfort. 

The Donor Application Process

1st Step

Online Application

The first step in the donor application process is two online applications. The preliminary application is a short questionnaire to ensure that you are the appropriate age (20-30) and in general good health.

2nd Step

In-Depth Medical & Personal History

The second questionnaire is a longer, more in-depth set of questions looking into your health and social history, family health history, and a series of short essay questions. We will also ask for photos to be submitted with this secondary application.

3rd Step

Donor Intake Call

Once your secondary application has been submitted, it will be reviewed by a third party team member, and you will be contacted to schedule a donor intake phone call. This phone call is 15-20 minutes, and will review your application, the next steps in the screening process, and answer any questions that you have about the egg donation process.

Medical Screening

At the end of your intake phone call, we will schedule your intake medical screening appointment at the FISD office (if you are in the San Diego area) or we will send instructions for how to complete remote intake medical screening.

Become an Egg Donor

Donor Medical Intake Screening

FISD completes intake medical screening on all incoming donors prior to acceptance into our program. This screening includes:

  • A visit to our San Diego office (if you live within the San Diego area)
  • Ultrasound with follicle count
  • Blood work
    – Anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH)
    – Infectious Disease Screening
    – Genetic Carrier Screening

Once all results are returned from this screening, we will let you know if you have been accepted into the program.

The Donor Timeline

Donor Intake

The donor intake process typically takes 2 weeks, from the time you submit your application to the time you are accepted (or denied.)

Donor Listing

Donors will remain active on the donor database until they are selected for a cycle, which can take 1 week – a few months.

Full Process

The donor cycle itself takes approximately 3 months, including all medical screening, legal contracts and the cycle itself.

Donor FAQs

How much compensation will I receive?

Donors are compensated $8,000 for their first donor cycle. Donors may increase their compensation at their desired amount for subsequent cycles. Donors may complete up to 6 cycles.


Compensation is paid to donors on the day of their egg retrieval.

Will I incur any costs for being an egg donor?

Nope! All fees for your cycle will be paid by the intended parents. That includes all screening and legal fees. You will get a copy of all screenings and labs completed for your personal medical file.

Will I ever know the person (or people) that I am donating my eggs to, or the future children?

All of the cycles completed for our in-house egg donor program are non-identified, unless we specifically discuss an open cycle with you.

In a non-identified cycle, you will not meet, nor receive any identifying information, about the intended parents, and they will not receive any identifying information about you.

We will have you complete legal contracts prior to the start of the cycle, which will specifically outline any future exchange of information between yourself, the intended parents and any possible future children.

It is important to note- while we will not disclose your identifying information, home genetic testing kits, such as “” or “23 and Me”, along with increased transparency on the internet with social media, image search, etc. result in the possibility that you may be identified in the future by the intended parents or future children.
