How to Become an Egg Donor

One of the greatest gifts you can give to another family is the gift of a child. Egg donors make a meaningful impact on another person's life, and the donor are compensated in an amount close to $10,000. The process for becoming an egg donor can be complicated, but DoNotPay helps potential egg donors navigate the paperwork.

What is Egg Donation?

Egg donation is a form of assisted reproduction where one woman (the donor) gives her eggs to another woman (the recipient). The egg donor must take multiple medications that cause her to produce multiple eggs in a single menstrual cycle. Once produced, the eggs are removed from the ovaries. After the eggs are removed, they are fertilized with sperm in a laboratory and then implanted in the recipient through a process like in vitro fertilization (IVF).

Egg donation is one of the primary ways that a woman who cannot get pregnant with her own eggs is able to carry a baby.

Egg Donor Eligibility Requirements

The eligibility requirements for egg donation vary from agency to agency.

Common Egg Donor Requirements
  • A woman between the ages of 21 and 32
  • A BMI between 18 and 30
  • Does not use nicotine products or recreational drugs and has no history of substance abuse
  • Has regular, monthly menstrual periods
  • Has both ovaries
  • Does not have a family history of genetic disorders
  • Must be willing to take injections
  • Have a basic level of education such as high school degree or GED
  • Does not use the Mirena IUD, Depo Provera shot, or implant birth control

Be sure to closely study the requirements for the organization you choose, because the requirements could differ from those listed above.

How to Pursue Egg Donation On Your Own

Egg Donation is an important service, but it is also a serious medical procedure. To pursue egg donation on your own, you will need to do significant research to understand the process, eligibility requirements, and to choose an agency to work with. You will need to:

  1. Find one or more egg donation clinics in your area
  2. Research the clinic's eligibility requirements to determine if you qualify
  3. Apply for each clinic where you are interested in donating and meet the requirements
  4. Complete any screenings required by the agency if your application is accepted
  5. Choose a clinic to work with

The above process might seem straightforward, but it is often time-consuming and frustrating. You might find a clinic you want to work with, spend significant time filling out an application, only to find that you don't meet the eligibility requirements. These obstacles might cause you to reconsider egg donation, even though it is beneficial for you and the recipient. DoNotPay can help.
