I'm looking for American Society for Reproductive Medicine guidelines; can a donor at an agency donate more than 6 times?  Is it federally regulated, or enforced, or just a guideline?


Ive heard it's said they are not allowed to donate more than 6 times in the USA in their lifetime.


 I am going thru an issue in which I was almost going to pay a donor $31,500 USD for her donor fee and she was 33, I would have been the recipient of her EIGHTH donation, 7 of which she was with the same agency who was really pushing her as the best. I believe this to be very unethical!


Thank you!

Hi Sophia,

This is a Canadian website and while we have a few members who are US based you'll find the content predominately Canadian. I'd suggest you reach out directly to ASRM for accurate information.

We've tried lots of things for a long time. None of them have resulted in a viable pregnancy.
