Oak Lawn IL egg donors

Where Our Egg Donor Clinic is Located in Illinois

Illinois egg donor clinics are located in Chicago and the surrounding areas to ensure that qualified egg donors have a convenient location to complete the process. We request that those who wish to become egg donors live within two hours of one of our partner clinics, which are found throughout the country. 

The Process for Oak Lawn, IL Egg Donors

You may be wondering what the egg donation process is like. We ensure that women who wish to donate eggs at any of the Illinois locations are fully aware of the process ahead of time so that they fully understand the commitment. The process from beginning to end is simple and straightforward:

  • Application: We ask that you read through our eligibility requirements before applying to be sure you meet our criteria. Once you fill out the online application, it will be reviewed by our team of egg donor coordinators as well as our head geneticist.
  • Screening process: Our screening process involves thousands of dollars of both genetic and medical testing provided at no cost to you. This step allows us to determine whether your health and genetic background meet our requirements. After the screening, you’ll receive $200.
  • Acceptance: After getting screened, you’ll be notified as to whether or not you’re accepted into our egg donation program. Upon acceptance, you’ll receive an additional $300.
  • Egg donation cycle: The reason we require egg donors to live within two hours of one of our partner clinics is that you’ll need to come for six to eight appointments at the Illinois location closest to you leading up to the egg retrieval procedure. The procedure itself, however, takes only about 20 minutes. If our staff approves, you can donate up to six separate times.

Egg Donor Requirements

At Fairfax EggBank, we have exacting requirements that our egg donors must meet to be accepted into our program. These are industry standards that are set by ASRM and the FDA.

Unfortunately, that means that not everyone who applies can become an egg donor.

  • Age limit: Between 19 and 30
  • BMI: In the 18 to 26 range
  • Good overall health: No reproductive irregularities, no smoking
