Meet Egg Donor R!

“While your body goes through changes, be prepared for the emotional impact as well. This is certainly not a decision to be taken lightly. Families come in all shapes and sizes, so be open to any opportunity that you are afforded!”

What led you to become an Egg Donor?

As members of the LGBTQ+ community, my husband and I will eventually need to utilize a sperm donor in order to conceive. I understand the heartbreak of being unable to conceive with your life partner, regardless of your circumstances, and I want to be able to give to other families what I can only hope for in my own future!

Who offered the most support throughout your journey?

I am fortunate to have a wonderful support system, but my husband takes the cake. As nurses, we are used to caring for others, but he made sure that it was my turn to be taken care of. When faced with a flight cancellation on the way to my first retrieval, he sprinted through the airport with our heavy bags to make sure I would still make it to the gate in time as I hobbled through the terminal (those hormones are no joke!)

How did you choose which type of egg donation you’d like (closed/semi-open/open)? Why did you choose this type?

I am open to anything the intended family is comfortable with, acknowledging that there are many factors that influence this choice. I would love to experience a semi-open or open donation one day.

Do you know the outcome of your donation? How do you feel about the outcome?

With a closed donation, I will never know the outcome. And while I respect this, it was tougher than I anticipated, especially after hearing what a success my retrieval was. I hope to experience an open or semi-open donation one day!
