How to Donate Eggs for Money

Updated on June 30, 2015

So You Want to Donate Eggs for Money

Many people have heard about egg donation, but not everyone understands the process. Maybe you saw an advertisement on Craigslist looking for egg donors and want to learn more.

A lot of young college students decide to donate when they find out they can make $7000 or more when they donate eggs. While that's a lot of money, keep in mind that there's a reason you're getting paid so much money! This is a complicated process that will take up a fair amount of your time. On top of that there are some personal issues you should consider before you make the decision to donate your eggs.


Can You Really Get Paid to Donate Eggs?

Smart people should always hear alarm bells when someone offers them thousands of dollars for what seems like very little work. Egg donation is one of those rare instances where there truly is a market for something that's relatively easy.

The amount of money you can be paid typically ranges from around $4,000 to $10,000. There is a fairly diverse market for eggs.

  • Many women are at least allowed to place their information in a book for prospective parents.
  • Men can generally only donate sperm if they're close to 6 feet tall and have a college education.
  • Being attractive and well-educated will certainly help your prospects for selection, but many couples simply look for an egg donor that shares physical similarities with themselves.

As we'll discuss later, you will want to look for an agency that's reputable. Many advertisements promise exorbitant rates (anything over $10k starts to sound fishy). These may actually just be egg brokers looking to lure in interested parties, and then offer something much lower when everything is ready to go. There do seem to be some egg donation offers that are legitimate and higher, but these far exceed the professional ethics guidelines for what is necessary.

What is the Egg Donation Process?

  1. Find an agency. There are many agencies. Take your time to research them. Keep in mind that most potential parents are willing to pay for travel expenses, so you aren't limited by geography.
  2. Go through the screening process. The agency will put you through a vigorous screening process that is used to build your case, profile, and to sure you're healthy enough to donate as well.
  3. Wait for inquiry. This step may take as little as a few weeks, or it may never come. Prospective parents will have to choose you from all the potential women they look at. But remember, there are many people out there looking for egg donors.
  4. Interview and/or medical checkup. Most prospective parents will want to fly you to their local fertility specialist. Sometimes. they will meet with you. Other times, you'll simply get checked up by the doctor. Expect a pelvic exam, blood draw, and psychological evaluation to make sure you are a fit candidate for the procedure.
  5. Be selected. If everything goes well, the prospective parents will move forward. At this point, you should receive a contract that covers the payment schedule and treatment obligations of the parents. Remember, you should never have to pay out of pocket for any medical or travel expenses incurred through this process.
  6. Begin hormone treatment. At this point, you should have already discussed hormone treatments with the doctors. Now you will receive shipments so you can begin. Typically, these will be sent via FedEx or UPS to your home. The hormones are needed so that you will produce multiple eggs that can be harvested.
  7. Egg harvesting procedure. The most common procedure is called Ultrasound Guided Aspiration. The procedure has an excellent track record of safety and is also relatively quick.
  8. Get paid. Usually, you will get a small portion of money around the time you begin hormone treatment (it's typical to receive about $1000 at that stage). The remainder will be due once the procedure has been completed. Again, most reputable agencies pay between $4,000 and $10,000 total.

Personal Issues to Consider when You Donate Eggs

When making the decision to donate your eggs, it's important to think about the personal issues involved. You're going to be helping somebody have a child that doesn't have the ability to have their own, and most people think that's a wonderful thing. It is, of course. However, you should consider how you'll react knowing that there's a child in the world that is genetically yours. In most states and most situations, you will have no access to the child in the future. Egg donors have no parental rights as far as the state is concerned.

This is a deeply personal matter and you should careful consider if you are okay with this arrangement. In some limited circumstances, the legal parents of the child will create an agreement where you can contact the child in the future. However, this is definitely not the norm and tends to happen more frequently when you know the couple using your eggs before the donation process begins.

How Do You Avoid Egg Donation Scams?

  • The most important thing to remember is that a legitimate egg donation will involve no money upfront from you.
  • Also, once you're selected you should be signing a legal contract that guarantees all of your legal and travel expenses will be paid for while you are on hormone treatment and when your eggs are harvested.
  • You will want to make sure that you look into whatever agency you choose to work with. Ask for references from former egg donors who have gone through the process.
  • The biggest thing you'll want to look out for are egg brokers. As we discussed earlier, promises of $50,000 for eggs should be taken with a grain of salt and are likely an attempt to compile a database of potential donors. Don't waste your time with brokers since there are many agencies that handle this sort of thing more efficiently.

      Im a happy 34 yr old mother of 3 beautiful children. I am interested in egg donation simply because I believe in the circle of life. I could not imagine not having my children so I do sympathize with the ones who are unable to do so. I live in Spartanburg South Carolina and I pray that I can help someone enjoy the pleasures of motherhood... I am available if you need me locally unless God has led you to find me from somewhere else.. May your journey be blessed...

      Do you have to be in perfect health and a certain age to donate? I've always been a bigger woman and I'm not sure if that'll matter. I would love to donate so that someone can have their dream even if I can't. If you could point me in the right direction, I would be extremely grateful.

      I would also like to make some money on the side. I am not sexually active, so as a virgin, could I donate? In the future, if I donate now, will I be able to have kids of my own when I choose too?

      WOMEN ARE BORN WITH BILLIONS AND BILLIONS OF EGGS, it is impossible for a woman to "run out" of eggs, unless I suppose her ovaries were removed. Menopause happens when your body gets TOO OLD to support the reproductive system and create children. DUUUH. I have thought about donating a few of my eggs since I am young and most likely an ideal candidate. It wouldn't hurt for extra cash since being a college student is difficult and I eat so much insta-ramen I can barely taste it anymore. haha. But I'll continue my research from here.

      Hello, my name is kathryn and i recently got kicked out of my home and had to turn custody of my 4 month old to his father because of that. But i digress; im 18 years old, i graduated high school a year ago, and my son is in the 96th percentile and he was born at 9.67 lbs (strong genes), i was hoping to locate an agency- a legit agency or couple mind you that would like me to donate my eggs in the st louis/ belleville illinois area.

      I have black hair, blue eyes, im roughly 5'4", i weigh about 130 pounds and i wont deny that im pretty stocky in my build. Ive read and have weighed the pros and cons on this. However my uniformed conclusion was that even though he is no longer in my care id still love to provide my lil monkey (my son) a good college education and get into a rental for myself so i could see him more often as well

      i don't understand why you have to have a high school diploma to donate eggs. it shouldn't matter about education if a young woman is willing to donate their eggs to someone who is in fertal so that thay will have a chance to be a mommy, all that should matter is that the doner is clean disease free and in good health they should be allowed to donate.

      I see many of you asking some of the frequently asked questions (FAQ) which may be answered by visiting http://www.angeleggdonation.com/FAQ.html

      @ Ediat - You may want to be skeptical of Egg Donor agencies or 'companies' offering $10,000+ for first time egg donors, since the ASRM suggests that sums above $10,000 compensation are inappropriate. Remember, egg donor compensation is not regulated by law, however, the ASRM has ethical guidelines surrounding compensation for a reason. In many countries compensated egg donation is illegal, and many legislative pursuits have surfaced to do the same in America due to some of these outrageous compensation requests.

      @ Illyria and Danielle - Most donors who choose to have children after donating their eggs are able to successfully achieve pregnancy without any difficulty.

      @ anon – Since intended parents are taking a financial and emotional risk with a first time/unproven donor, $10,000 may be just a bit much to ask. At An Angel’s Gift, Inc., we request that our first time egg donors adhere to a first time donor maximum of $5,000 for several reasons. Firstly, there may be additional testing that needs to be done on a first time donor that the intended parents will have to pay for – some tests that may possibly be avoided with a repeat donor. Secondly, since egg donation requires a lot of time, effort, and responsibility on your behalf, intended parents don’t have a ‘precedence’ per se that you will not fall through and become unreliable.

      @ Ebony – The actual egg retrieval is a surgical procedure whereby your eggs are aspirated by an ultrasound guided needle. You are comfortably sleeping during this procedure, however it is still a surgical procedure and you will feel bloating and discomfort afterward. Additionally, you will have to give yourself subcutaneous injections to administer the fertility medications necessary to donate your eggs. If you’re afraid of needles, egg donation is not for you!

      @ AJ – not all agencies require you to be a college graduate. However, the simple fact that you pursued higher education, and were able to successfully complete such an accomplishment does speak to your tenacity and responsibility. Since reliability is so important when donating your eggs, having a college education speaks volumes. Additionally, many (not all) intended parents require college education for their donors. Since intended parents make the egg donor selection, it only makes sense that agencies recruit what intended parents are looking for.

      @ Katie and Nicky – Many clinics and egg donor programs require that their donor applicants be between the ages of 19-33. I’ve not personally seen ages older than 33 accepted into programs, but they may be out there. At An Angel’s Gift, we require our donors be at least 21 years of age, but not older than 30. At 41 you would unfortunately not be eligible to donate your eggs.

      @ Sabby - Yes. The procedure bypasses your fallopian tubes and accesses the ovaries directly

      I think egg donation centers should read this thread. Anyone that asked a question that was already asked/ answered further up should be permanently barred from donating since they must be illiterate (how someone learns to write without reading is beyond me). Read people!

      i recently donated my eggs to my friend, but there are several legitimate agencies out there - most of which will have your information available to women [or men] across the country. Before they asked our friend-base I know they looked at:

      Fertility Network Agency

      Extraordinary Conceptions

      and

      Surrogate Alternatives

      You must remember not everyone can donate eggs. You usually have to be at least 21 [though I've seen some places that accept 20 year olds]. You must be a non-smoker and you have to pass a drug test. They offer you an application that you must fill out [most are about 10 pages long] of you and your family's health history. Your high school diploma is almost always mandatory, but you don't need your college degree even though it is usually what future parents look for. I've been told girls with nicer traits are more likely to be picked for the process as how the donor looks will reflect the look of the child.

      If you are picked for the process it takes several month where you must abstain from sex, drugs, alcohol, and very rigorous exercise. You can only donate so many times and even the first time you donate, due to the hormones, you are susceptible to future fertility problems due to over stimulation of the ovaries. Though it doesn't happen to everyone, you should keep that in mind - especially if a family is extraordinarily important to your plans of the future.

      Though the process was strenuous, for me, and got quite stressful, it was still a great experience. The opportunity is what you make of it, don't donate because you like the idea of 5K in your bank account. Only apply if you are mentally and physically prepared - there are several people who say they want to donate but pull their application once they get an interested couple because they get scared which is very frustrating to those serious about the process.

      Hope this helps!
