My Egg Donor Experience, by Donor J Jan 31, 2018 | by Donor Nexus

"My Heart Couldn't Feel More Full"

I recently completed my second egg donation cycle with Donor Nexus. It was slightly different from my first time around because I only had to give myself the injections for 14 days, instead of 22 days. In the grand scheme of things, even though I sometimes had to give myself 3-4 shots a day, I preferred the 14-day cycle.

After a few days into the meds, the doctor decided to up my Follistim dosage. It had me worried that maybe my body wasn’t responding to the meds or that I may feel more severe side effects. But everything went great. The only side effect I experienced during the cycle was bloating and very mild stomach cramps for a day or two after the retrieval.

The doctor retrieved a total of 22 eggs from me and I just received the news that the intended parent is pregnant. My heart couldn’t feel more full. I’m so happy I made this experience possible for them and would do it again if given the chance.
