To become an egg donor you must:

  • be aged between 18 and 35
  • be within a healthy weight range for your height with a BMI under 30
  • be willing to be screened for a range of medical conditions, including sexually transmitted infections (STIs), for example HIV, syphilis and chlamydia
  • be free from serious medical disability
  • be willing to have a healthy diet and lifestyle
  • know or be able to find out about your immediate family medical history*. This covers your:
    – children
    – siblings
    – parents
    – grandparents
  • not have any hereditary disorders within your family
  • agree to be registered with the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA) as a donor
  • not put yourself at risk of sexually transmitted infections (STIs)
  • not be or be trying to become pregnant yourself during the egg donation treatment cycle
  • not knowingly leave out any relevant information which could affect the health of any children born as a result of your donation
  • be willing to be identified and known to any children born from your donation when they get to 18
  • be able to commit your time and energy to the egg donation process.

* If, for whatever reason, you’re unable to provide details about your immediate family members’ medical history then discuss this with your clinic. We wouldn’t want this to be a showstopper for you becoming a donor.
