The Benefits of Finding an Egg Donor in Texas
Texas is one of the largest states in the United States, home to a rich culture, diverse population, and many family-friendly communities. Texas is also home to many top fertility clinics, reproductive endocrinologists, and other fertility specialists with extensive experience in family building.
Texas has become a popular place for intended parents to find an egg donor due to the state’s large cities, excellent airports, and array of busy fertility clinics. For many couples and individuals, coming to Texas for your egg donation cycle has become a practical and viable option.

We can help you find the Texas egg donor you are looking for, whether that means a well-educated and intelligent egg donor, a kind and creative egg donor, or a blonde egg donor, we have the expertise to find the best egg donor for your family.

How Egg Donors Are Screened in Texas
Donor Concierge’s Texas egg donor agency partners follow strict standards created by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM). According to these guidelines, egg donors must pass health examinations, including physical examination, infectious disease screening, genetic counseling, and mental health counseling. Egg donors must also provide their medical history for review.
Egg donors are recommended to be between 21 and 34 and physically healthy. This is typically the top concern for all parties involved. Your donor’s health will be evaluated through medical examinations, including a pelvic ultrasound to gauge fertility.
The Donor Concierge Egg Donation Process for Intended Parents in Texas
Step 1. Consultation and Intake
When working with Donor Concierge, all hopeful parents begin by scheduling a free consultation. During this consultation, you will speak to one of Donor Concierge’s expert case managers about your family-building needs and background. You will share any concerns you have, the qualities you are hoping to find in an egg donor, and any other pertinent information. Your case manager will address any questions, and share the ways Donor Concierge can support you in building your family. If you choose to move forward to find a Texas egg donor with Donor Concierge, you will then complete an intake form and payment.
Step 2. The Egg Donor Search Process
Once you have completed the intake process, your Donor Concierge case manager will discuss your needs in further depth to ensure we have an accurate picture of what you are searching for in an egg donor. With your criteria in mind, your case manager will begin the search for available egg donors that fit your criteria and create a customized portfolio for review. If you are looking for a Texas egg donor, for example, your case manager may focus on preferred locations, whether an egg donor willing to travel to Texas might work for you, and more.
As you review profiles, your case manager will communicate with your donor candidates’ egg donor agencies, fertility clinics, and more to ensure you have all the information needed to proceed to the next step. The egg donor search typically takes three weeks to complete.
Step 3. Reserving Your Egg Donor
Once you have chosen your egg donor, Donor Concierge will introduce you to the egg donor agency to begin the egg donation process. This will involve coordination with your fertility clinic, legal contracts, and more, which the agency will manage with you. Your Donor Concierge case manager can help provide recommendations of Texas fertility attorneys, clinics, and any other fertility resource you may need during your egg donor journey.
Step 4. The Egg Donation Cycle
The medical egg donation process will begin next. Your fertility clinic will schedule an appointment for your egg donor to visit the clinic and complete her physical, genetic and psychological evaluations to ensure she is cleared to donate her eggs. Your egg donor will then start medications to suppress her menstrual cycle, and prepare her body for the injections that will stimulate her ovaries to produce multiple eggs.
To increase the number of viable eggs donated, egg donors must first take hormone injections that stimulate their ovaries into producing more mature eggs than are normally produced in a regular ovulation cycle. These injections are self-administered by the egg donor and typically take between 10 to 12 days. During this time, the egg donor is carefully monitored regularly by a fertility specialist to ensure that the medications are working properly and make any adjustments necessary.
When the eggs have reached the desired level of maturation, the egg donor will take a “trigger” shot of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG), which is a type of hormone that signals to the ovaries to release the eggs. The eggs will then be retrieved 36 hours later. During egg retrieval, the donor is placed under mild sedation while the doctor locates the mature eggs using an ultrasound wand. The eggs are then gently extracted using an aspirating needle. The eggs are combined in a petri dish with sperm so that fertilization can occur. In some cases, a procedure known as intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) may be performed instead. This procedure involves using a tiny needle to penetrate through the egg’s shell and injecting a sperm directly into the ovum’s center.
If you are undergoing a fresh embryo transfer, the recipient’s uterus (yours or your gestational carrier) will be prepared to receive the fertilized embryo. However, many people choose to have what’s called a frozen embryo transfer, which is when the embryo is frozen five days after fertilization and transferred to the uterus at a later date.
How to Find an Egg Donor Agency in Texas
For hopeful parents beginning their egg donor search, checking egg donor databases at multiple agencies can be time-consuming and confusing. That’s why Donor Concierge has simplified the process and guides your egg donor search to available egg donors and those that come as close as possible to your desired criteria. If you are looking for a Texas egg donor agency, there are always some important considerations to keep in mind. When evaluating Texas egg donor agency options, remember to ask:
- How long has the agency been in business?
- How many egg donors do they have available?
- Do they have the kind of egg donors I am looking for?
Rather than finding Texas agencies and then searching through their egg donor candidates, we find the best egg donor candidates for you, searching across hundreds of egg donor agencies. We work directly with you to identify the qualities that will ensure an egg donor is the best fit for your family and share egg donor candidates from over 100+ agencies that we have vetted and approved. If you’re struggling to know which egg donor agency to trust or don’t know where to find a Texas egg donor, we can help.
Navigating Egg Donor Costs in Texas
Many factors may influence egg donor costs in Texas, including location, donor choice, fertility clinics, and more. Egg donation costs typically range from $30,000 to $65,000+ and include a range of fees:
- Egg donor compensation
- Egg donor agency fees
- Medical procedures and medications
- Legal fees
- Travel and other expenses
Fertility can be a costly process, and it can be difficult to consider how best to begin the egg donation process with a budget in mind. Fertility financing programs and grants are good options for parents looking to build their families through egg donation.

Egg Donation FAQs
The cost of egg donation in Texas ranges from $30,000 to $60,000. This variance is based on many factors: your fertility clinic medical costs, if you are doing a frozen donor egg cycle, or having the donor travel to your Texas fertility clinic. Try using Tulip's Egg Donation Cost Calculator to determine the cost of your Texas egg donor cycle.
Genetic testing cannot accurately predict whether someone will develop ADHD, as there is no one “ADHD gene”, according to genetic counselor Emily Mounts. She adds that studies have found that the chance that a first-degree relative (child, sibling) of someone with ADHD will have this condition is 15-60%
People who donate eggs are likely to have some testing done for genetic carrier status. The test will vary depending on your fertility clinic and the number of carrier traits tested may be different. The most important factor is the carrier status of the sperm contributor. A qualified genetic counselor can help you determine the likelihood of a genetic carrier status being passed to your future child by doing a thorough family history, combined with genetic testing of both gamete contributors.
Your donor egg search includes a thorough review of available frozen donor eggs at egg donor banks. However, we will need to confirm which frozen egg banks your Texas fertility clinic is partnered with. Also, your fertility doctor will need to advise how many frozen eggs you will need for a successful cycle.
