Can I Donate my Eggs?

Becoming an egg donor is one of the most generous and altruistic acts a woman can do for others. For those who are unable to have children using their own eggs, the journey to parenthood requires the help of women who have made the decision to dedicate their time, energy, and of course, their eggs to assist individuals build their families. If you are interested in becoming an egg donor, you’re likely hoping to learn more about the process and what it all entails. However, it’s important to first find out whether or not you qualify to become an egg donor.

Egg donor requirements are needed in order to determine those who are best suited to proceed through the egg donation process. If you’d like to become an egg donor, the best first step you can take is to review Egg Donor America’s egg donor requirements and check off whether or not this criterion applies to you.

The following is a list of the minimum requirements needed to become an egg donor:

  • Physically and psychologically healthy, has both ovaries
  • Age 18-32 with a BMI of 19-29
  • Non-smoker, no current use of psychoactive drugs, no history of substance abuse
  • No family history of inheritable genetic disorders
  • Not using contraceptive implants or Depo-Provera injections
  • Must be willing to take injections needed for the donation process

    If you find that you meet these requirements, then you are likely to qualify as an egg donor - of course this ultimately depends on the results of your application once it has been reviewed. To submit an application to become an egg donor, please visit Egg Donor America’s application page.

    As your egg donor application is reviewed by our team, it’s a good idea to get familiarized with the egg donation process. Once a match has been made between a donor and the intended parents, screenings will be performed to test the egg donor’s fertility, overall medical, genetic, and psychological health. Potential egg donors should be fully knowledgeable about what the process of donating her eggs will entail so as to not be surprised by the screenings, injections, and the actual egg retrieval procedure.

    The decision to donate your eggs is one that offers many rewards – one being compensation for your egg donation, but the other is the realization that if not for your time and efforts, a family-to-be might still be waiting for that one person who is matched to help complete their family. If you have any additional questions or concerns about becoming an egg donor or if you would like to know more about the egg donation process, please feel free to contact Egg Donor America.
