Why donate your eggs?

Egg donation is the ultimate gift you can give another woman. It provides hope to women who cannot conceive with their own eggs, including those who have experienced premature menopause, or whose ovaries are impaired due to life-saving medical treatment or surgery. Sadly, because of a shortage of donor eggs, often women are forced to wait before they match with the right donor.

We welcome donors of all ethnic origins between the ages of 18 and 35, and all donors receive DKK7,000 when they donate to cover time and expenses relating to treatment. Egg donation is completely voluntary and you can withdraw your offer any time before the egg collection procedure.

Who can be a donor?

To donate with us, you have to meet these simple criteria:

  • You must be between 18 and 35 years old
  • You must be physically and mentally healthy
  • You must have a clear medical history, with no record of hereditary diseases in the family
  • You must be happy to undergo screening for HIV, Hepatitis (B and C) and syphilis (which you may need to repeat several times, as test results must be less than 30 days old at the time of donation). You’ll also meet with one of our nurses for an interview
