In Britain, IVF Waiting Lists Down as Egg Donors Get 'Pay' Raise
The economic downturn and a change in the law have led to a boom in the number of women donating their eggs for money at private fertility clinics. When new rules came into effect on April 1 allowing women to be paid £750 for each cycle of eggs, there was an immediate surge in numbers registering as donors. Clinics that once had waiting lists of up to 18 months are now boasting none at all, meaning childless couples desperate for IVF treatment can start the process straight away.
