What's the "in demand" candidate profile?


Quoting Anonymous:

 You have to go through a screening process, then a physical (no biggie) then all kinds of blood and urine tests, once we find a recipient you start your meds. Which can be up to three injections a day given by yourself or SO, doesn't really matter. You come into the office everyday for about a week, give or take a day or two, for blood work and an ultrasound to watch the progression of the follicles. Then there is the trigger shot (just gets your body ready to release them for the retrieval, it doesn't actually MAKE you ovulate) then the day of the retrieval you have to take the whole day off because of the meds they give you. It isn't too bad, the procedure only takes about an hour. It's the same process as IVF, everything is a timing game. If you are off one day it could be a lost cause.

What is the process? Is it seriously painful and draining? What are the shots for ?

 I work at an infertility clinic and have girls come in all the time to donate. While I think it is an amazing thing to do, after having kids of my own I just don't think I could do it. I see what the process is and what they go through, I can give shots and take blood all day but I am a horrible patient and getting shots everyday is not on my list of things to do. I am also the kind of person that would see a kid that looked like me and always wonder where my eggs went. But for the girls that can do I know many many ladies that appreciate it and couldn't have a baby any other way.

Pretty much anyone under 30. Some ethnicities are harder to come by than others.
