Cost to Donate Embryos to Another Couple for Family Building

Q&A with the Experts


embryo-donation-quoteQ: If we donate our unused embryos to another infertile couple so that they can try for a pregnancy, how much will it cost us?

A: As a general rule, it should cost you nothing as the donating couple. The receiving couple picks up all testing and shipping costs, and may be able to pay your past cryopreservation (frozen storage) costs. It is not possible to recoup any of the cost of the infertility treatment needed to create the embryos. We discussed the costs for the donating couple at length on this Creating a Family show on Embryo Donation. We also have a Creating a Family show devoted entirely to the topic of couples deciding to donated their unused embryos.
