My Egg Donor Experience, by Donor A

I have donated my eggs twice now with Donor Nexus and I plan on cycling again when I can! Both times went a bit differently for me, but I seriously enjoyed each one of them. Yes, it can be a lot to deal with – daily injections, doctor’s appointments, and things you can & cannot do – but in the grand scheme of things it really isn’t so bad. The injections seem intimidating at first, but once you get the first one over with you realize it isn’t so bad. For me, the injections went for ...

My Egg Donor Experience, by Donor B

Being a first time egg donor, I didn’t really know what to expect through the whole experience. I knew what was going to go on based off what I was told and heard from some friends of mine. Going through the experience was very rewarding to me and made me feel great that I could give someone the chance to have a child and to experience what I do everyday with my children at home.

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 ...

My Egg Donor Experience, by Donor S

Egg donation is one of the most rewarding experiences I have ever had. It started off with a simple interest. I’ve always loved helping people and thought this would be a great way to do so. I spoke with my husband to see his thoughts on this and he and I both agreed that this could be an incredible experience. I applied to Donor Nexus and within the month got an email letting me know they found me a match! I was ecstatic! I did my psychological screening and my medical screening. I was so ...

Finding Hope: A Recap of an Intended Parent and Egg Donor Meeting

A recent egg donor-intended parent meeting shed some light on the hardships intended parents go through. During the meeting, the intended mother opened up about why she had to use an egg donor. Many years ago, the intended mother was pregnant with her son. Unfortunately, she went through a traumatic experience while pregnant that gravely affected her child. When he was born, he was immediately taken to NICU and the doctors prepared her for the worst. A few days later, her greatest nightmare ...
