Give the gift of motherhood and become an egg donor. Fertility Institute of Hawaii is proud to help women who are unable to conceive using their own eggs to achieve their dreams of having a family. The generosity of egg donors like you is what continues to make this possible.

Egg Donor
Application

Description of Program

Thank you for your interest in our egg donor program. Fertility Institute of Hawaii is always seeking healthy women between the ages of 21-28 to become anonymous egg donors to help infertile couples. If you are accepted into our egg donor program, you will provide the gift of life to our patients, while receiving compensation for your time. There is currently an immediate need for donors of all ethnicities and you can donate more than once.

Successful egg donor candidates should meet the following qualifications:

  • Between the ages of 21 and 28
  • Reside in Hawaii on Oahu or the neighbor islands
  • Be in good general health
  • Drug and disease free
  • Non-smoker
  • College-educated donors are in high demand, minimally a high school diploma is necessary
  • Committed to all cycle screening appointments

If you feel that you satisfy the above requirements, please complete our initial online application by clicking here. If you would like more information, you may contact our Donor Nurse Coordinator directly at 808-380-8234 or send us a message here. Once your initial application is reviewed and received, if you are eligible as a donor, you will be contacted to complete the remainder of the steps in the screening process and be invited in for an interview.

Selected donors must complete the following:

  • A face to face interview with our Donor Nurse Coordinator
  • Have a head to toe complete physical, a pelvic exam, as well as breast exam with one of our on-site physicians
  • Blood and urine labs to test for HIV, Hepatitis, and other infectious diseases
  • General blood work including blood count, hormone testing, and transvaginal ultrasound for ovarian monitoring
  • Full panel genetic screening blood work, to include a chromosome analysis and DNA testing for Cystic Fibrosis, Fragile X, and other anomalies
  • A comprehensive psychological screening evaluation by a licensed professional to assess overall psychological health and well-being, as well as your readiness and active participation as a donor
  • A urine drug screening test

Commitment and Expectations

At the Fertility Institute of Hawaii, you may choose to donate more than once (up to 6 times); repeat donors can receive more than $25,000.00 in total compensation.  No out-of-pocket costs are ever charged to the egg donor. Please Note: Egg donors who do not reside on Oahu, will not be compensated for travel costs, in addition to the stipend that is already being offered.

From the first initial interview with our Donor Nurse Coordinator, donors can expect about a two-month window of time until the completion of the cycle and for all testing to be performed. Once you are activated as a donor, a cycle takes approximately four weeks. You will be coming in for frequent appointments, arranged at times that can accommodate your schedule. These appointments will consist of blood draws and vaginal ultrasound to assess your ovarian reserve and response to the medications being given. You can expect to come in approximately 5-8 times for appointments.

Medications are given by injection and you will be instructed on proper administration. When you are ready for your egg retrieval, you will receive intravenous sedation by an anesthesiologist and the procedure is performed transvaginally to extract the mature eggs, guided by an ultrasound probe.

Partnership

Fertility Institute of Hawaii partners with Donor Egg Bank USA, which is a national egg bank that provides frozen eggs to recipients across the U.S. When eggs are frozen immediately after retrieval, donors are provided with flexible scheduling options and times when they can donate. Donors do not have to wait until their cycles are synchronized with that of the intended recipient’s.

Donor Referral Program

Word of mouth is by far the best advertising when it comes to finding qualified donors. Each time that you refer a donor to us and she completes a cycle, you will receive a $250 gift card to Ala Moana Shopping Center. There is no limit on the number of referrals that you can make. So, spread the word and enjoy a shopping spree on us!

Again, if you have questions that have not been answered here, please contact our Donor Nurse Coordinator at 808-380-8234. If you are interested and ready to become a potential donor, start your initial online application NOW.
