Surrogacy with Your Own Eggs or with a Known Donor
Many people choose surrogacy because it allows them to have their own biological child. So, for those intended parents desiring to use their own eggs, or to use the eggs of a family member or friend, there are two key areas where you may save money.
- Egg Donor compensation
- Egg Donor Agency fee
In most cases, this is $15,000-$20,000 in savings. If you find it is important for your child to know the egg donor, having a known egg donor who is a friend or family member will often provide you with an ideal situation.
Now, it is important to note that in these scenarios, you may come across decreased chances of success the older the age of the eggs being used. So, money being saved by not using an egg donor from an agency may be spent in increased attempts at pregnancy.
