My Egg Donor Experience, by Donor L
I donated my eggs for the first time with Donor Nexus and I do not think I could have had a better experience. I am so grateful for Mackenzie, who is so sweet and makes the process so easy. She was with me the entire time, reminding me of my appointments and texting me after my appointments to make sure that I was okay. Also, the staff at HRC and the surgery center was all very nice and gentle with my blood draws and pelvic exams. In regards to the process, the trickiest part was the self-injections, but I was given explicit instructions and video links that made the injections, simple and painless. As for my egg retrieval at the surgery center, I do not remember much of it, but it was painless and in good hands—the nurses were amazing. The only side effect I had from the entire egg-donor process was bloating from the medication and some more bloating from the procedure, but I think that was a small price to pay if it meant helping someone become a parent. I am satisfied in my decision to donate my eggs and would do it again with Donor Nexus.
