Would you donate your egg? watch our gurlz, tough question! Would you take money?

I had a fertility issues that was resolved, Thank GOD! Childbirth was the best, scratch that, was the most rewarding experience in my life, trumps my wedding. However, almost not having children to having a child is wonderful. I think about the Moms that can't, during my ordeal on the bottom of the page, it asks would I b willing to donate my eggs. WOW!
On one hand, I would love for a women to experience motherhood, its the best gift that we have and on the other hand, Im saying, Geez, do I want my dna running around! I would wonder...
Then I see ads in the paper (not that I would entertain them) for egg donors...I was wondering if people really do that?
My solution was if a family member or close friend needed help, yes, I would.
Donating to a stranger kinda feels weird to me. (Tag ur it)

  • I would never begrudge a woman the experience of motherhood, but I like you could not have my DNA running around without me knowing. Plus, how good of records do they keep of this sort of thing, and spem donners...I know it is a great big world out there, but eventually is it a risk of inbreeding?

  • I'm not sure I could donate without having a complete background on the people I was giving too. I would not take money. I think this is similar to adoption. If I took money I would feel like I was selling my baby.

  • I, personally could not. I couldn't stand not knowing my child. There are so many children in the foster system that I wish people would consider adopting first. However, I think anyone that could donate their egg is a wonderful selfless person. I would hope people who need money would not choose to "sell" their eggs. But if you are doing it for the right reasons, I don't see why they shouldn't take the money.

  • This is a tought question and it certainly involves a lot of thought. I would donate my eggs, but I would not do it for money. I think the person I donate them too would have to be someone I knew well, not just some stranger.

  • i would also like to add donation are "giving" something out of the kindness of your do not take something in exchange for what you give

  • I would.

    I would not accept anything for it though.

    And I would be happy to.

    Think about it... there is some desperate couple out there who needs an egg and may already have the sperm. Or, they may need both and you are half the answer to the rest of their life. :)

  • Also... you are not using all of your eggs... every month when you have a cycle that is an egg lost.
