Egg Donor Requirements

Who Can Become An Egg Donor?

Our egg donors are very special women who want to help others struggling with infertility. We are always searching for qualified egg donors. But not everyone can be an egg donor – there are eligibility requirements that we must adhere to in order to ensure the health and safety of everyone involved. Beyond the physical and medical requirements, there is also a time commitment involved.

That’s why Egg Donor Central offers generous compensation to our donors at various points in the egg donor screening process. Interested in learning more about the criteria and requirements for egg donation?
