Become an Egg Donor
Egg donors make motherhood possible for many women who are unable to use their own eggs to conceive. Thanks to the generosity of egg donors like you, more than 1,000 Shady Grove Fertility patients have become mothers through egg donation. The donation process is completely anonymous. It requires a real commitment over a period of several weeks which is why egg donors receive generous compensation for their time. Read more about why donors donate.

Egg Donation Options
Shady Grove Fertility partners with Donor Egg Bank USA, a national egg bank which provides frozen eggs to recipients across the country. Having eggs frozen immediately after retrieval allows donors to donate on their own schedule, they do not need to wait for a recipient's cycle to be synchronized. Our donor liaison can explain the pros and cons of fresh or frozen donations to you if you have additional questions.
