For those of you that utilized an egg donor (non-share) would you be able to tell me approximately what the total cost was (between the donor agency, eggs, clinic costs, potential travel costs for donor, lawyer fees, etc)? I'm trying to get a good handle on what really to expect to pay. Also, does anyone have any good experiences with an agency? I actually found a donor I liked with 1 agency but I have no idea if they reputable or if they are priced well. She is $10,000 for her eggs and the agency comes close to $6500. The agency is out of CA and I am in the NorthEast.
Thanks for any input-this process is so overwhelming!
