Have you considered surrogacy?

Egg donation may seem like the best next step when you want to earn extra income while helping someone grow their family, but did you know surrogacy can actually offer you more compensation and fulfillment?

If you do not qualify to become an egg donor and feel called to help others build their families, learn more about becoming a surrogate. Surrogate requirements are different from egg donation qualifications and you may still be able to fulfill your dream.

Egg Donor FAQs

Becoming an egg donor comes with a lot of questions. We are ready and prepared to answer them. Below are 5 of the most common questions we get about egg donation, but we offer a more exhaustive list on our FAQ page, which you can find linked below.

1. How old do you have to be to donate eggs?

Our egg donor age limit is between 21 and 28 years old. We set these limits to protect your reproductive health and ensure you are ready to make the commitment required of egg donation.

2. How many times can you donate eggs?

You may participate in egg donation up to six times.

3. What might prevent me from being a donor?

The leading egg donation disqualifications are being unreliable and missing appointments. Keeping a schedule is one of the most important egg donation qualifications in our egg donor program.

Additionally, we want to understand your motivation, health and family medical history, as well as your emotional stability before becoming an egg donor. Any one of these factors could disqualify a donor depending on the results.

4. Is it painful to donate eggs?

This varies by individual. Some egg donors feel fine after egg retrieval while others need time to rest. Medical staff are available to offer any tips or support with post-procedure discomfort.

5. How long does the process take?

Once selected, the egg donation process can take at least 8 - 10 weeks. Some donors wait up to a year to be selected.
