We are selective in the women we choose for egg donation at our Los Angeles, California clinic.

How Western Fertility Institute Supports Our Egg Donors
We appreciate our special egg donors and their desire to aid others in achieving something they could not do without you. We accompany you along every moment of this journey, and we pass along the appreciation of our clients. We offer generous monetary compensation to our donors, too. You can earn up to $20,000 for providing the gift of life.
Are You a Candidate for Egg Donation in Los Angeles?
We are one of the most selective places to donate eggs. Unlike some other California egg donation centers, we do not accept every candidate who applies. You must meet a set of requirements in order to qualify. We are discerning because we want to offer our clients the most optimal chance at implantation. To donate eggs, you must:
- Have attended or be attending college
- Be athletic
- Be able to provide a full family medical history
- Meet certain height and weight requirements
- Have a Body Mass Index 30 or under
- Be between 18 and 30 years old
Our thorough screening process may also require you to provide other information and meet other requirements. We are happy to answer any questions you may have about why we need this information and how we use it. You should feel involved in the process and connected to our final goal, which is giving families the child they have been waiting for.
The Egg Donation Process
Egg donation employs the process of in vitro fertilization to get eggs from the donor, which we use for the intended mother or surrogate. You will need to take hormones for a couple of weeks before we can get your eggs, using ovary stimulation to produce more than the one egg released in most monthly cycles. After your eggs have been collected, we move on to fertilization and then implantation.
Becoming an Egg Donor
When you apply to become an egg donor, we keep your identity anonymous. We honor your privacy and will not reveal who you are to our fertility clients. They browse our listings without seeing any names. You get the reward of knowing you have assisted someone with fulfilling their lifelong dream, through a process that takes only a small amount of your time.
To become an egg donor, you will need to complete the following steps:
- Complete an application.
- Go through a few questions for your online profile, which will then be added to our website.
- Meet with Dr. Kumar to complete an ultrasound to check the health of your ovaries.
