Women typically become Egg Donors due to a genuine desire to help infertile couples or individuals conceive. Many are inspired by empathy for friends, co-workers, or relatives who have faced infertility or pregnancy loss. Motivated by a strong sense of compassion, others are driven to assist once they learn about egg donation.

Prospective Egg Donors should be healthy, responsible, committed, and familiar with their family’s health history. While physical appearance can influence selection, Recipient Parents often prioritize personality traits, hobbies, interests, and intellect. Compensation is an added incentive, but Family Source believes it should not be the primary motivator.

In summary, egg donation offers personal gratification and financial compensation for women who do not view their eggs as offspring, are healthy with attractive mental or physical traits, are willing to follow an intense medication protocol, and have support from a spouse, partner, friend, or family member.
