Become an Egg Donor

Thank you for your interest in the UCSF Egg Donor Program.  We are excited for you to learn more about our program. 

Our Egg Donor Team understands the needs of women who choose to donate their eggs and provide you with the compassion, counsel and support you may need as you embark on this generous journey. UCSF Egg Donor Program is part of the UCSF Center for Reproductive Health.  All of our physicians are board-certified in both obstetrics and gynecology, and reproductive endocrinology and infertility. We have been helping patients become parents using donated eggs since 1991 and were one of the first programs in the Bay Area to do so.   Our expertise is complemented by the commitment and care of a large team of professionals, including genetic counselors, psychologists, quality nurses and a detail-oriented office staff.  

How to Begin

Being a donor means committing to a thorough health and psychological screening, and if chosen to be a donor, undergoing the preliminary phases of in vitro fertilization.  The medical procedures involved in being an egg donor include administering injectable medications to stimulate your ovaries, undergoing ultrasound monitoring over the course of 10-14 days and having a simple outpatient procedure to remove the stimulated eggs from your ovaries.
