EPISODE 34 ~ GUEST BLOG: Are You Thinking About Becoming An Egg Donor?

Courtesy of Extraordinary Contraceptions

At Extraordinary Conceptions, we know that egg donations truly make a difference in the lives of others. We work with future parents around the world who are trying to conceive a child but can’t do it without the help of an egg donor like yourself. These parents are looking for potential egg donors who may physically resemble themselves in some way such as hair color, facial features, or blood type. Aside from physical characteristics, they may also be looking for ways in which the donors reflect themselves; artistic, compassionate, humorous, and well educated. Because we help such a diverse group of parents, we are looking for all types of women who are willing to become egg donors.

Maybe you know someone who struggled with infertility and needed the help of an egg donor to become a parent. If so, then you know how heartbreaking and difficult it can be for people who are unable to conceive on their own. Your egg donation can be a very rewarding experience not only for the parents, but for yourself. Becoming an egg donor gives you the opportunity to learn more about your own genetics and fertility through the testing and screening process that you may not know otherwise. Egg donors learn the outcome from their egg donation, which brings the experience full circle. While most egg donations are anonymous, in some cases there are “known donations” where the egg donor and parents may even stay in contact for future updates. And of course, all of our egg donors are generously compensated for their time.  If travel is required, all travel is paid upfront plus per diem. We also have opportunities for international travel.
