A representative from the American Society of Reproductive Medicine estimates that spending on donor eggs is now about $38 million a year. ASRM in Birmingham, Ala., says about 10,000 babies a year are born from donated eggs.
Donors typically are 18 to early-30s, when women are most fertile and eggs are healthiest. ASRM recommends that egg donors receive between $5,000 and $10,000 for the donation of eggs.
