Just saw this thread: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/would-you-ever-donate-your-eggs
And it got me thinking…
I donate everything I can. I’m an organ donor, I donate blood/platelets/plasma/red cells as often as I can, and I’m on the bone marrow registry. If my hair grew enough, I’d donate that too. If I can give it away, I’d love to.
My husband and I were TTC for a year before we stopped for unrelated issues. Our infertility issues are not thought to be my eggs, but honestly, is there a way to know for sure? If you knew that you had problems with TTC, would it be…wrong (is that the right word?) to try to donate eggs? Can you even do that, does anyone know?
A part of me feels like if a family chose me to “take” my eggs, that I would be “jipping” them because my “parts” don’t work as well as some women, so to speak. Is that crazy of me to think that way? Or if they were to transfer my eggs into their uterus during IVF, that my eggs would have…I dk, less of a chance, and it would be wrong of me to donate them knowing that. Is it? I hope no one finds this offensive, I’m just trying to inspire discussion here!
ETA: I’m totally not thinking about doing this right now. I’m just wondering. Please don’t attack me…I hope no one finds this offensive!!

I’m sure you have awesome eggs! There are so many things that factor into getting pregnant, it’s crazy!
To answer your question, I probably wouldn’t donate my eggs if I was have issuas getting pregnant because I would be afraid to give one away that might work out for a pregnancy for me. It’s probably a selfish way to think, but I when it comes to giving out potential offspring, I think we have a right to be a bit selfish?
I’m not sure my opinion really counts here because I wouldn’t donate eggs even if I was perfectly fertile.

@Cory_loves_this_girl: I didn’t think about it like that…. hmmm. And that is why I love the bee, you ladies think of things that I never would have! =) hahaha!
Thanks for complimenting my eggs *blush* I hope you’re right 😉 We will find out in about three years 😉

Yeah, I kinda worry that my eggs are absolute shit as well, and I just managed to hit one lucky one. I don’t think I’d donate eggs, just because I worry that it would be really hard on my body to take the hormones and stuff that would be required, and then not even get enough/good quality to make it worth it.

@ChuckNorris: NO. The children produced from my genetic material are children I am responsible for. I don’t want to lose track of these children. No.
