What is Egg Donation?

Egg donation is truly the highest level of giving anyone could ever hope to accomplish. It is literally, the giving of yourself - an unselfish act of mercy, to help those less fortunate. It is the most supreme gift of all, the gift of life.

Sperm donation has been available for years. Men have always been able to help other men become fathers. Now egg donation allows women to help other women become mothers.

Egg donation is a fertility treatment whereby a young woman, who has decided to become a donor, is given medication to help her make more than just one egg that month. She is monitored very carefully by the doctor to make sure that the eggs are growing appropriately. At the right time, the eggs are removed, usually from below. They are then mixed with the male partner's sperm, and hopefully, an embryo will start to grow. The cells are then placed into the womb of the woman desiring a child. Hopefully, nine months later, she will give birth to her healthy baby. She will finally have the family she has wanted for so long.

It takes a very special person to be an egg donor. Not only does she need to be young and healthy, but she needs to be responsible and very dependable. It is absolutely critical for her to make all of her doctor appointments and to take her medication accurately.

Being an egg donor is not only helpful to you financially but emotionally satisfying as well. The fact that you've been an integral part in making someone's dream of having a family come true, is deeply satisfying.
