Qualifying to Become an Egg Donor


There are so many great reasons to become an egg donor. Not only will you enjoy the deep satisfaction of helping intended parents start a family of their own, you’ll also be financially compensated and know you helped to make someone’s dreams of having a family come true.

If you’re considering becoming an egg donor, read on to learn about some of the qualifications required to become a successful candidate.

Basic Qualifications

Meeting some basic qualifications is the first step of the egg donation process at Simple Donations. Among other qualifications, donors must:

  • Be between the ages of 21-30
  • Have a healthy BMI (body mass index)
  • Live in the United States or Canada
  • Be mentally and physically healthy
  • Not be using any contraceptive implants
  • Not have had any tattoos or piercings within the past year
  • Have a minimum of a secondary school education, or equivalent
  • Not be a smoker, a drug user, or drink alcohol in excess
  • Not have a history of genetic disorders
  • Be willing to travel
  • Not be currently nursing
  • Be dependable and able to keep appointments

How Does Egg Donation Work?

If you meet the necessary qualifications, a member of our team will contact you to verify the information you provided on your application. If an Intended Parent selects your profile and you agree to donate, you will be sent to screening at the clinic and have medical tests, including a physical exam, an infectious disease screening, a test to determine the functioning of your ovaries, a screening for inherited disease, and a psychological screening.

Some of the potential donors who undergo these tests may not qualify to donate eggs, but that is unusual. Most healthy donors have no issue being selected and qualifying to donate eggs.

What Happens Next?

Once you are qualified by the clinic to become a donor, you will start taking medications for the next 10 days or so. You’ll also have blood tests and undergo ultrasounds. The entire medical process is less than a month. You are compensated $750 when you begin medication=s, and after retrieval, you receive your full compensation.

Once this part of the egg donation process has finished, the recipient will take a pregnancy test after a few days. If the recipient’s test is positive, congratulations! This means you helped an individual or couple achieve their dream of starting a family.
