Interested in Becoming an Egg Donor?

Author: GSHC Surrogacy


GSHC Surrogacy Agency is Actively Recruiting Egg Donors! If you’ve been thinking about donating your eggs to help a couple conceive a baby, you’re probably wondering if you’re qualified. Egg donation is a beautiful opportunity to bring a new life into a loving family—while also being generously compensated for your contribution.

The Requirements

Before becoming an egg donor, you must meet a few requirements. At GSHC, we conduct a thorough pre-screening to ensure a smooth procedure and the best chances for a healthy baby. In general, egg donors should be between the ages of 20-30 and in good health, both physically and emotionally. You should have a BMI between 19 and 25 as being overweight or underweight can affect egg quality. It’s also necessary to have regular monthly cycles and no family history of serious health issues.

It’s also necessary to be free from sexually transmitted diseases within the last year and have no history of drug use. As an egg donor, you will need to consent to urine toxicology tests during your screening to ensure your eggs are as healthy as possible.

Donating your eggs can be a mentally demanding process, so we want to make sure you understand the time commitment and emotional investment involved. Our donors must be willing to undergo a full medical and psychological evaluation.

Psychological evaluations, while stressful, are also incredibly important to the egg donation journey as a whole. They’re essential for your wellbeing and help to ensure that an egg donor is capable of carrying the emotional weight of this decision and knows exactly what she is agreeing to.

You will also need to be available for approximately 5-10 appointments, be willing to take injectable medications, and undergo medical procedures—which can be inherently risky. The approval process can also be quite emotionally draining in itself.

We also ask that an egg donor refrains from getting any tattoos or body piercings within the six months prior to initiating an egg donation and while undergoing an egg donation cycle.

The Compensation

We understand that the commitment to egg donation shouldn’t be taken lightly, so GSHC ensures compensation of $4,000 to $6,000 for first-time donors. Once you initiate the egg donation process, your specialist will make sure to go over all aspects of your compensation with you, depending on your specific case.
