Why become an egg donor? - London Egg Bank

Why become an egg donor?

Egg donation is a kind and generous act that helps other people create a future that wouldn’t be possible without you. By donating your eggs, you are helping someone else fulfil a dream that wouldn't be possible without you.

Empower other women

A shortage of donors in the UK means that the supply of donor eggs is low. Many women face long waiting lists before they can start treatment. By donating your eggs, you are giving another woman the opportunity to become a mother.

Be an advocate

One in six couples in the UK is affected by infertility. Being proud to be an egg donor and openly talking about your experiences will encourage other women to consider egg donation, helping to break down the stigma around talking about infertility and donation.

Pass on your genes

If you are unsure if you wish to become a mother yourself, donating your eggs is a good way to pass on your genes for future generations.

Learn about your fertility

As part of the donor screening process, you’ll receive a full fertility assessment along with genetic tests – these will check if your eggs are suitable and detect any hereditary diseases. The assessment will give you a detailed picture of your fertility health.

And as a thank you…

Egg donation is an altruistic act, and we understand you aren’t looking for payment, but we do ensure you’re covered for expenses you incur while taking the time to donate. You'll receive £750 for each egg donation cycle that you complete, processed quickly on the day of your treatment.
