When your high school health teacher gave you “the birds and the bees talk,” getting pregnant probably seemed pretty straightforward, albeit, simple. But unfortunately, having a child is something that can be very difficult, if not impossible, for some couples.
Thankfully, medical and technological advancements, as well as the generous egg donation of another woman, allow us to provide infertile men, women, and couples with the gift of a healthy child.
Egg Donation — Giving the Gift of Life
Egg donors quite literally give someone the gift of life. Thanks to egg donors, what once seemed like an impossible dream could be a reality in as few as nine months. The decision to donate your eggs is one that could have far-reaching effects and span generations.
Donors can Learn About Their Fertility (or Infertility)
Once a donor’s initial application is reviewed and approved, they’ll begin genetic and physical testing. Through the process, donors will learn about their reproductive health, fertility, and risk of certain hereditary diseases. Even if a woman is unable to donate after these tests, we will share all of this information with her. The more informed women are about their general and reproductive health, the better they can take care of themselves and plan for the future.
A common misconception about women who donate their eggs is that they do it exclusively for a paycheck — that couldn’t be farther from the truth. In fact, our evaluation process is designed to weed out women who are doing this as a last resort for income.
That being said, the egg donation process requires donors to travel, undergo minor surgery, and part with something they hold precious — for those reasons, we do offer financial compensation for their time, travel expenses, and sacrifice.
Though there are no restrictions on how donors use their compensation, we find that many donors use the money they make to help pay for the rising cost of college tuition. We’ve also seen donors return as clients, using the money they made to finance their own egg fertilizing cycle. If a donor is considering having her own children in the future, this is a safe and cost-effective way to preserve her fertility options.
Asian Egg Bank was established to satisfy the ever-rising demand for Asian egg donors.
