Why Donate Eggs in Cape Town?


There are a surprising number of selfless people worldwide who are willing to donate, and to give a great deal, extending even to healthy, young women who are willing to donate a few of their eggs, despite a rigorous process involved.


In this article, we find out why people donate; why some special women are willing to donate a few of their eggs; why egg donation in Cape Town is the world-class option; and why you should donate eggs with us at Cape Fertility.

Why donate?

According to UNICEF, there are many good reasons for people to donate, with altruism and a basic moral obligation to help others being two strong motivators.

Donating to important causes not only benefits those who receive, it can also be deeply rewarding for donors. In fact, millions of people around the world donate on a regular basis to causes they believe in, because of the positive effect it has on their own lives.

The knowledge that you are helping others, who will often never know who you are, is very empowering and can also make you feel happier and more fulfilled – a major positive mood-booster.

In addition, many donors feel a sense of social conscience or a moral duty to use what they have to help others. To many donors, being able to improve the lives of others is a privilege that comes with a responsibility to do it.

Many donors are simply the generous kind of people who spend a lot of their time and effort giving, helping and donating to others. They regularly give blood, donate money to causes, support charities, can be found on organ donor registers and often work in caring professions.

Why donate eggs?

Healthy eggs are in growing demand, as hundreds of thousands of women worldwide experience great difficulty when trying to conceive a baby or carrying their pregnancies to term. In many cases, this is because either they cannot produce eggs or because the eggs they produce are of poor quality.

There are many reasons why so many women are unable to have a child with their own eggs. These include advanced maternal age (35+), premature menopause and cancer treatments that eliminate the ability to produce eggs or negatively affect the quality of the eggs. Those relying on egg donation to achieve their dream of parenthood also include women born without ovaries, women who cannot use their own eggs because of genetic reasons, and women who have been undergone repeated unsuccessful In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) treatment, as well as couples considering surrogacy.

Egg donors are the only way these women can have the opportunity to have a child.

The vast majority of egg donors donate for altruistic reasons: to help someone in need of help. Many have seen the anguish of friends or family members who were unable to conceive without an egg donation and want to help – even women they don’t know and will never meet.

Others have experienced receiving help from someone else and want to reciprocate by ‘giving back’ in some way. Many women who hear about egg donation feel that it is a better use for their eggs than simply being lost every month and would rather help another woman.

Although egg donors do receive some compensation for their expenses and effort, this limited amount is rarely the motivation: most egg donors are altruistic women who go beyond what most people are willing to do to help others.

Donating eggs is sharing a gift money cannot buy and science cannot create. These donations can help a couple to experience the joy of having their own child. It is immensely gratifying to know that your donation makes such a big impact.

Why donate eggs in Cape Town?

Cape Town has consistently been voted by travellers worldwide as one of the best and most beautiful cities in the world.

This is what The Telegraph, an award-winning, multimedia news brand in the UK for more than 160 years, writes about Cape Town, calling it ‘a sprawling city that excels in natural splendour’:

You really can’t overstate the case for visiting Cape Town. First, there’s the in-your-face beauty of a craggy mountain range that drops precipitously into a glittering sea, its flanks carpeted in greens and delicate florals. Then there’s the pristine white beaches lapped by – it must be said – a chilly Atlantic, their curves defined by giant granite boulders to bake on, and burbling mountain streams in dappled forests. And no visit is complete without at least one full day exploring some of the surrounding vine-carpeted valleys, their rich terroir spawning not only award-winning wines but superb produce. Yet Cape Town has a cool urban edge, too: excellent art galleries, hip bars, world-rated restaurants, and design-savvy shops. It’s also home to many of Africa’s innovative artists and designers, drawn by the city’s innate beauty, and with MOCAA the city is now home to the biggest repository of contemporary African art. In short, this pulsating city will leave you hungry for more.

Even if you don’t live in or near Cape Town, you can still donate your eggs in this beautiful city.

If you are selected as a Cape Fertility egg donor, we will arrange for you to travel to Cape Town and stay here for the duration of the egg donation process, at no charge to yourself!
