egg donations

I heard an ad on Pandora about being an egg donor. I'm curious about thoughts on this. I see why it is beneficial to some who have trouble conceiving but I don't know if I could do it knowing genetically, the baby is half mine. it's like sperm donations. how do you donate and just walk away?

I would but I can't a I'm to young and b I smoke so no one wants my eggs if I quit id consider doing it to help a needing couple with a healthy egg id just like the consideration of knowing the name of said child so we as in any of my family don't cross paths with him or her and get intimate

I don't think I could do it either. I've thought about it because it's good money, but I don't think I could give my child to someone else.

I would let some one donate eggs for me! When you want a child so bad and have trouble concieving you will do just about anything to have a baby! JMO

it's completely private. they ask for your picture do they can match you to someone with similar features

Yeah, the money is the only reason it caught my attention

and I can completely understand that and it's great there are programs like egg donation to help. I think of a woman is able and willing to donate then they should. I just don't know if I could donate.

I understand =) It's not for everyone! All depends on the circumstances and all! Thanks for being so kind!

Really? Then probably not since I couldn't know. I'd just want a name oh well. Anyone who can and does is a brave soul

of course :-) I would never judge someone's decision like that.
