“FSC was phenomenal. Their team was practically always available. They were very detailed in the process. They are kind and supportive. No question was ever too small.”
Q. What led you to become an Egg Donor?
Initially, personal family financial help wanted. It took me some time to decide this was something I really wanted to do, as I didn’t feel my initial reasoning was substantial enough to do it, let alone fair. After a couple of months of sitting on the decision and discussing it with my immediate family, I saw so much to it. I am young, but we also know our daughter is going to be our only child, why not donate to a family in need of help, as our daughter is our pride and joy! At my age my success rate of good numbers at collection was high. We are making life-altering choices. We have provided a family with the potential chance of a child. I would donate again, it really is quite a magical experience if you will.
Q. Who offered the most support throughout your journey?
My significant other, but some close friends as well.
Q. What made you decide to be closed/semi-open/open with your intended parents?
I really didn’t have a specific preference here. I went with semi-open, but was okay with whatever the IP’s chose. I may be giving myself injections and going through a collection process, but I always wanted the IPs comfortable. I agree more with semi-open allowing the child to reach out if they want to. I feel this is very similar to adoption in a way, some kids need to have the knowledge of the biological make of them.
Q. Do you have any advice for women who are interested in becoming an Egg Donor?
This is an emotional process, even if you are doing it for financial help. You MUST have a support system, without one this may be a difficult process.
