Just wondering if you ladies could explain to me if this is a)do-able, b)wise and c)what pitfalls there might be? I am thinking of making my own website advertising for a donor in the USA (I'm not in the US). With religious beliefs of DH I am hoping to find a donor who needs to do IVF for male factor issues and is willing to share her eggs with us in return for us paying for her cycle. DH would strongly prefer to use eggs that are being retrieved anyway - kind of a 'no egg lost' type thing.
What procedures would need to take place, and what might the cost of something like this be? Has anyone done anything like this?
happens all the time

Happens often, I think. If you contact clinics in the U.S., I'm sure they could arrange it for you.

Cooper center for IVF in Marlton NJ has a shared egg program. Free IVF for women who need IVF, but are willing to share 1/2 their eggs. You could check their list and see if anyone is doing IVF for male factor.
Other reasons young fertile women have IVF besides male factor

some have tubal issues and require IVF even though eggs and sperm are fine. Yes someone mentioned Cooper has a program for this where a couple like that gets reduced-cost IVF if they share their eggs with a recipient. No idea who pays for what or how much choice you have as far as donor characteristics.
Other reasons for IVF for a fertile woman would be to screen the embryos for some potential defect, I don't know if they let them share eggs in that case.
Some clinics offer that as an option

I know that Shady Grove in Maryland has that option, but there are probably other clinics that do that.
