Egg Donor Requirements and Qualifications

Egg Donation Requirements and Qualifications: Overview

While some egg donation requirements must be met, they are all designed to ensure the safety and success of the procedure. To qualify as an egg donor, you must be a healthy woman aged 19-29 with no major hereditary or genetic illnesses and have a BMI between 18.5 - 24.9. You'll undergo medical evaluations, genetic screening, and fertility testing to determine eligibility. Throughout the egg donation process, you will maintain a healthy lifestyle with no smoking or drug use and also be required to remain abstinent for the duration of your cycle.

*Egg donation involves a screening process and not all potential egg donors are selected and not all selected egg donors receive the compensation amount advertised. As with any medical procedure, there may be a risk associated with egg donation. First, an egg donor must agree to begin the ovum donation process and sign a legally binding contract. The donor is required to receive specific information on the known risk of egg donation. Consultation with your doctor before entering into an egg donor contract is advised. [Ca. Health & Safety Code 125325(a)] In addition, a summary of the egg retrieval procedure must be given to the egg donor before there is a binding contract. [Ca. Health Code 125325(b)].
