Rise in women donating eggs for money

18th July 2012

More women are donating eggs for money to private fertility clinics.

New rules, which came into effect on April 1 allowing women to be paid £750 for each cycle of eggs, combined with the economic downturn has led to a surge in the number of women registering as donors. It means that clinics which had 18-month waiting lists in the past can now see childless couples start the IVF process straight away. It comes as the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority allowed maximum compensation for donors to be raised from £250 to £750.
