Egg Donation in the United States

Egg donation in the United States offers Intended Parents a wide range of benefits. While egg donation is not legal in many countries, the laws in the U.S. on egg donation are very favorable and allow donors to be compensated for their time and effort in participating in the egg donation process. As a result, more women in the U.S. donate their eggs than in other areas of world. This means that international parents have more choices and are typically able to find a donor who matches with them more quickly.

Egg donors in the U.S. go through extensive screening at the IVF clinic. The medical care in the U.S. is among the best in the world leading to better outcomes for Intended Parents. IVF success rates are often higher at clinics in the U.S.

The laws in the U.S. are also more favorable to using an egg donor. In fact, in many states, the law is clear that the egg donor is not a parent and the Intended Parents are the only legal parents.
