Egg Donations

They posted a donor search at our hospital. I was very interested but I wanted know if any of you ever donated and what was the procedure.

  • they just extract about a dozen eggs. they used to offer $2,000.00 an egg. I guess they stopped paying now. You don't feel anything. quick procedure. You don't have to stay overnight for it

  • They don't "just" extract anything.

    You have to go through a physical evaluation, and then a psych eval too. THEN you have to take fertility drugs to get you to release more than one mature egg at a time, and I think you do that for 6 weeks, and THEN you donate.
