Egg donation & helping others conceive


Hi Ladies

I have had confirmation that I am eligible to be an egg donor following a scan from the clinic and I am so excited!!

I know it isn't going to be easy with daily injections and all the travelling & scans (not to mention working it around school and a baby) but it is something that I am passionate about doing. I have completed my family and I NEED to do something for others.

Anyone else out there considering donating eggs? Or any ladies that have donated willing to offer some advice?

Thank you so much for doing this... for those of us with absolutely crappy eggs and no chance of conceiving without your help, we can't say thank you enough.

Hi ladies
Sorry I haven't been on in a while.
At the mo I'm just waiting for a consultation and counselling appointment. What exactly does that involve please?

I think my consultation was just getting the go ahead from the consultant and he went over what was going to happen. I possible had bloods done for genetic testing then as well, they took 6 weeks to come back.

I had one counselling session and I took my then husband with me, we both found it really informative.
