Egg Donor Program Fees
In collaboration with Pacific Fertility Egg Bank, Pacific Fertility Center (PFC), is pleased to offer two distinct donor egg options for patient’s family building needs; frozen donor eggs or fresh donor eggs.
Fresh Donor Egg Program
Patients interested in using fresh donor eggs can choose between experiencing the cycle simultaneously with the donor or having the donor complete her stimulation cycle before planning an embryo transfer cycle of your own. Some advantages of having the donor complete her stimulation cycle prior to planning an embryo transfer include embryo testing (preimplantation genetic testing also known as PGT), embryo banking for future pregnancy attempts, or simplified planning for those with busy schedules.
Pricing for fresh egg cycles have two fee components, the donors' in-vitro fertilization stimulation cycle as well as an egg donors' agency fees (e.g., donor compensation, travel expenses, etc.).
There are many variables to consider when calculating pricing for a fresh donor egg cycle. Please contact our new patient department for more information on fresh donor egg pricing.

Our frozen donor egg programs start at $19,615, considerably less than the cost of using fresh donor eggs. You may view our frozen egg program here or contact our new patient department for more information.

Frequently Asked Questions
In general, frozen donor eggs are more affordable than fresh donor eggs. Using fresh donor eggs requires the intended parent to select an egg donor for a stimulation cycle. Once the egg donor is selected they will be brought into the fertility clinic for screening, stimulation, and egg retrieval. Not only does this require logistical coordination, but it can also require that the cycles of both the egg donor and recipient be synchronized via medical induction. This process can take anywhere from 3 to 6 months to complete and sometimes even longer if you are planning a fresh embryo transfer and will need to synchronize your schedule with the egg donor.
