Are you wondering? Will I be compensated?
You might be wondering “Do I get paid to donate my eggs?” and “How much will I get paid to donate my eggs?”
The answer to the first question is Yes – you do get paid, but it not for your eggs, it is for your time and effort.
In terms of the payment received for donating eggs, donor compensation is guided by the South African Medical Ethics committee and is currently set at between R7000 and R9000 depending on where you donate and how far you are away from the fertility clinic.
You are compensated for time and effort.
The donor fee that is paid is not intended to pay for the eggs donated; you are not ‘selling’ your eggs, you are giving them as a gift to someone else. The payment received for donating your eggs is for the time and the effort required to go through the donation process.
When will you be paid?
As to when you will get paid when you donate your eggs, the payment of the donor fee is paid by the fertility clinic you donate at within 2 to 3 days AFTER you’ve donated.
How much will you be paid?
Egg donors will get paid between R7000 and R9000 each time they donate. Donors can donate a maximum of 6 times, or a maximum of 6 babies may be born from their donation.
