Get paid to be an egg donor: How much do egg donors get paid?
much do egg donors get paid? Do you get paid to be an egg donor? Why would you
be an egg donor? What are the benefits of being an egg donor?
you find yourself pondering on the above questions then this is the perfect
read for you. This article will give you a broad outlook on what an egg donor
is as well as what some of the major benefits of being one is especially
payment or rather compensation for being one.
What are egg
donation can be described as one of the major procedures used to make pregnancy
possible for women all over the world who might never be able to experience
pregnancy otherwise (with their own eggs).
According to statistics (Americanpregnancy.org)
approximately 3000 babies are born as a result of egg donations yearly.
has been priory mentioned, woman who cannot fall pregnant with their own eggs
for various reasons often require the assistance of or rather donation of egg from
an egg donor.
cannot fall pregnant due to the fact that their bodies don’t produce enough
normal eggs (in other words a low supply of eggs is the only reason why they
can’t fall pregnant and if it weren’t for this they would be able to fall
pregnant.) This is usually due to:
·older age resulting in less eggs production even with fertility
·poor quality eggs or embryo production
women use donor eggs because they might have inherited diseases or illness which
they don't want to pass on to their babies (the woman could be healthy but
she and her partner could carry a gene for the same disease making it a high
risk for their baby).
in their late 30s or 40s who’d like to become pregnant (and in a very few
instances those over 50) are often recipients of donated eggs.
unmarried woman trying to conceive without a partner (needing sperm donations
as well) often require egg donation.
donor programs allow those donating to place restrictions on whom they would or
would not like to receive their eggs.
How much money
do egg donors make?
to many laws worldwide, the term “how much do egg donors get paid” would be a rather incorrect one. The term “how
much are egg donors compensated” is
donors aren’t paid, per se due to the fact that donations are meant to be done
out of the goodness of your heart and not merely for financial gain. In addition to this, a price can't be put on a human life.
The money is given as a gift, a sign of
appreciation or to compensate the donor for the time, effort and inconvenience
she might experience during the process.
countries (and organisations) have different amounts which they give donors.
Depending on the country you’re in, the organisation you use or whether you’re donating privately or not, the amount of money you would
receive will differ.
America as per guidelines set by the American Society for Reproductive Medicine,
donors receive amounts ranging from $4500 to $8,000 or more.
This could be due to the fact that more and more women often need donors and
the volumes of donors are currently very low. The fact that there is a shortage
of donors has also resulted in woman having to place private ads for donors in order
to be fast tracked in an other wise long waiting list.
to an article published on guardian.co.uk
in the UK egg donors receive a flat fee of at least £750.
South Africa certain agencies compensate donors below or above R6000 on average.
into consideration the fact that you will be helping give the gift of
motherhood to someone who might not be able to become a mother otherwise, the
feeling of being that “difference” to her should mean more payment than the
money in itself and the money can merely be seen as a bonus.
As with all other major or life changing experiences, the decision to
become an egg donor should be one that is thought out thoroughly. It’s not to
be taken likely.
you decide that it’s something you’d like to do then you could become a big part
of someone else’s blessing.
