Become An Egg Donor

As egg donor (oocyt donor), you help to realise the dream of a child for couples where the woman due to an illness (eg. cancer, inherited diseases), premature menopause or Turner´s syndrome does not have the ability to become pregnant with her own eggs.

As an egg donor you can donate in several ways

  • Anonymous donor - where you and the recipient do not know each other and the identity of an anonymous donor will never be revealed to the recipient. Neither will you as a donor know who recieved your eggs.
  • Known donor - where you donate to someone you know. It can be a friend or a family member (but not a mother or daughter).
  • Open donor - where you and the recipient do not know each other now, but where the child can later be informed who you are and get the opportunity to contact you, typically when the child turns 18 years of age.

When you start as an egg donor, you do treatment as with IVF (Scheme 4).

Who can be a donor?

To be a donor you must be under 35 years old, completely healthy and have no hereditary diseases. You will need a gynaecological examination and a few blood tests. According to the Danish law an egg donor may donate eggs up to a maximum of 6 times.

Financial compensation for egg donation

The law prescribes that you can receive financial compensation of up to DKK 7000 for an egg donation. If you donate to someone you know, it is considered a friend service and is not honoured by the clinic.
