Egg Donor FAQ's

Our egg donor is interviewed for Cosmopolitan magazine and her heartfelt response is as follows:

What motivated you to become a donor?

The thing that motivated me to become a donor was because of the sadness some parents experience when not being able to conceive.  I never want anyone to feel that emptiness.  At a stage it was said to me that I might not be able to have children and that broke my heart, luckily things "grew right" as I became a woman.  Every woman should have to right to a child, someone to care for and love.

What were your main worries before donating?

While donating I never really worried about much except the fact that I tried to live as healthy as possible to give my recipients the healthiest eggs I possibly can knowing that they have probably been through hell just to get to this stage.

What has the experience been like?

The experience has been awesome. It's painless and you feel like you have actually contributing to something that is much larger than you could imagine, you just gave someone the gift of life.

What was the most challenging aspect?

The most challenging is definitely when your eggs are just ready to be "harvested" it really feels like awful cramps in your tummy.

How much are you made aware if a birth resulted from your donation?

Not much, I prefer to know as little as possible.

How much were you compensated and what difference has that made to your life?

I was paid the amount stipulated by the Department of Health, and I got the chance to go get myself a few things that will make my future just a little brighter like my leopard gecko Tequila.

What advice would you have for other students thinking about becoming donors?

Advice would be to do it. It's the biggest thing I've ever done and today the average person doesn't really get a chance to contribute to society. This is it! Just do it!

Do you have any regrets?

I have absolutely no regrets! Im already lined up for donation number 2.
