How do I become an egg donor?

In order to become an egg donor there are specific requirements set out by the Human Fertilisation & Embryology Authority (HFEA) and London Egg Bank. Egg donors, therefore, need to meet the following criteria:

  • Be between the ages of 18 and 35 years
  • Be a non-smoker
  • Be fit and healthy with a BMI between 20 and 30
  • Have measurements of ovarian reserve (an indication of egg supply) within the normal range
  • Have no previous history of low ovarian response to ovarian stimulation for IVF
  • Have both ovaries in place
  • Have no personal history of transmissible diseases
  • Have no personal or family history of inheritable diseases
  • Have no untreated polycystic ovarian disease

As of April 2012, egg donors are now compensated with a fixed sum of £750 per cycle of donation. Where a prospective egg donor does not complete the cycle, the clinic may compensate the egg donor on a ‘per clinic visit’ basis at the rate of £35 per visit to the clinic.

To speak to one of our friendly team about the egg donor program, please call 020 7563 1645 Monday -Friday between 8.30am and 5.30pm or email info@londoneggbank.com.
