Donating eggs, so that others can become parents, is a life-changing opportunity for both the donor and a potential recipient. It is a true gift of life and it is decision that only a handful of healthy, fertile women between the ages of 19-32 have the unique opportunity to make.
Whatever your motivation is to donate your eggs, it is important to understand the pros and cons. Most women feel 100% happy to be able to donate eggs to a couple that has been unable to conceive, however, there are also some women who will be concerned about how their donation will eventually be used to conceive a child, and how that child will be raised.
At DESA we have a very thorough screening process once your egg donor application form has been approved. As a potential donor, you will go for a medical screening which will include an ultrasound, a psychological evaluation, as well as a blood test. These results will be shared with you immediately.
You will see our psychologist or social worker, as we would like the process to be a fulfilling one, not just for the recipient of your eggs, but for you as well, and it is important at this point to really discuss any fears, concerns or thoughts with our psychologist about donating your eggs. Your full screening as well as counselling, will be done at no cost to you.
Becoming an egg donor:
However, with any medical procedure, there are are some drawbacks that you need to be aware of:
Donating eggs is a selfless and kind act that is a decision only you can make for yourselves. However, giving a the gift of life to parents who have gone through unimaginable pain and loss through their inability to conceive naturally is a blessing that will last a lifetime.
