If you’ve ever thought “I want to donate my eggs”, this article is for you. Deciding to donate eggs is a big deal–for you and or the recipients of your eggs. For you, it means some extra money in your bank account. Maybe you can pay off an old college loan, or pay down a credit card or car note. Even better, imagine how you’ll feel in the future when you look back on your life and realize you’ve helped create a baby–an actual person! You’ll be helping wives and husbands become mothers and fathers. How many people can say they’ve helped other people so intimately and so much? Not many.
For the recipients, your decision means they can finally build the family they’ve been dreaming of. Think of the holidays, birthday parties and graduations they’ll get to celebrate because of the choice you made.
Becoming an egg donor also requires taking on extra responsibilities. You’ll have to attend numerous appointments with your egg donor program, with lawyers, psychologists, and the fertility doctors you’ll be working with. You’ll have to take fertility drugs that can have side effects. And at the end of the process, you’ll undergo a minor surgery, the egg harvesting procedure.
