Up to 1 in 6 couples do not manage to get pregnant within a year, sometimes due to a problem with their eggs. Egg quantity and quality can be negatively affected by, among other, factors:
- early menopause
- medical treatments
- genetic conditions
The solution is donor eggs, but there is a shortage of egg donors. Eggs of non-Caucasian origin are also in high demand. Moreover, couples relying on donor eggs often need more than one attempt to get pregnant.
Are you thinking of donating your eggs? Or, maybe you have female friends or relatives who cannot get pregnant because they no longer have eggs of sufficient quality and their story has struck a chord with you? Or are you willing to help others to experience the joy of parenthood as well? As an egg donor, you can give couples one of the building blocks they require to make their wish come true and bring a child into the world. You donate a little miracle, and that is definitely something to be proud of!
Before you can donate your eggs, you need to complete a thorough medical screening process. Needless to say, this is interesting for you personally as well, since it gives you further insight into your own fertility – from your egg reserve to your hormonal system, your thyroid, kidneys and much more. Would you love to have children one day as well? Do not worry, donating your eggs will not affect your own fertility.
