Egg Donation


i havent looked too too much into it yet, but i have considered it before. but now that i am looking into it, if i were to get chosen, i think i would do it. i dont mind if there is a kid of there that looks somewhat like me that isnt mine.

How do you feel about this? Do you agree or disagree? Would you do this?

I've heard that they offer good money, but it's quite painful. If you do decide to learn more, maybe ask for previous patients' follow up notes or reactions.. anonymously of course.

I really admire you for even considering it. Since we've been trying for three years to have kids, I have learned the hard way how difficult it can be for some people, and I think that if you can and are willing to help someone that couldn't otherwise conceive, you're a SAINT. That said, we're getting ready to do IVF (well, probably...) and the process of egg retrieval isn't a walk in the park.

Gidget is right.

I (obviously) have no first hand experience, but the harvesting experience is painful, and involves some disruption of your life- the drugs they have to give you have their own side effects. Nothing permanent, but you may have a few uncomfortable weeks.

That being said, if you can do it, you're making the world a better place. Plus you can make some cheddar.

As for the genetics of it, the person who wipes the butt and gets up at 2am when someone is vomiting is Mommy. Genetics, in my mind, have very very little to do with it.
