Becoming an Egg Donor

1 in 6 couples in the UK have difficulty conceiving.

Some couples need donor eggs, but there is currently a severe national shortage of egg donors, particularly those of an ethnic minority.

This shortfall in egg donors has resulted in extremely long waiting lists and some patients having to resort to travelling abroad for treatment.

Recipients rely on the generosity of others to help them start a family.

Frequently asked questions

Why are egg donors required?

What criteria do you have to meet to become an egg donor?

Will I get paid?

Egg donation is essentially altruistic in the UK and so there is no payment as this is illegal. However there is no cost to yourself for the medical treatment and we are able to fully reimburse your travelling expenses, loss of earnings and childcare costs etc. on production of receipts (up to £50 per day to a maximum total of £750 per cycle of egg donation).
