Donating eggs?

Anybody ever donate their eggs? I'm beginning to look in to this and wanted to get some unbiased feedback. I love the idea of helping another couple and the monetary payment is a nice bonus for the doctor's appointments, etc... that you have to go through. I plan to ask my gyno about this but from what I've read it seems relatively safe. Any feedback is appreciated.

Not sure about egg donors, but for sperm donors, people tend to choose blond, blue-eyed, healthy, fit, ivy league graduates. I don't know how it works when woman in infertile, do they choose a donor most physically resembling her or go for the ideal? Just make sure you're prepared for rejection.

From the reading I've done on egg donation, it's not very easy on your body. In order to produce enough eggs to harvest you have to take fertility drugs, which can be very harsh and cause some side-effects including reproductive issues for the donor. Definately do your research before you sign up! You don't want to make yourself sick or compromise your health or your future children.

It would be nice to have the money but have you thought about it morally? Have you thought about what it would feel like to have one of your children out there somewhere? I mean, that's what it is, your own flesh and blood...

OP here: Thanks for your thoughts etc...

To the 12:10pm poster: Not to sound conceited, but I pretty much am the ideal candidate-very good health, hardly any family medical concerns, etc... I do realize that there could be other genetic things that I don't know about though.

To the 12:40 poster: IMO, I'm not giving these people a baby. I'm giving a couple who is desperate to be parents a chance to create a baby themselves.

I do believe it is safe, lots of work. I have many friends who have fertility issues and people like you are a blessing to them.
