Hi all, I wanted to ask a few questions about egg donation! Anyone mind if I pick your brain?!?
I'm hoping to do some egg donation in a few years. My DH and I have one beautiful DD who is 9 months old. We have always said we would want 1 child, and our family is feeling complete. I'm not expecting that to change but who knows with life! I'm still breastfeeding and hoping to for at least another year, so this is more something I'm considering in a few years time. Would also like to wait for DD to be a bit older as I'll be out of action for a few days and may be unwell with drugs etc (as I understand it).
Would anyone accept me as an egg donor given I am overweight? I am 100kg, so very big. But I am healthy and was lucky enough to fall pregnant with my DD first try.
I have a family history of cancer, as my father passed away recently aged 65yo and my grandmother at 83yo has breast cancer. My mother also has early onset osteoporosis and arthritis. Would this affect my eligibility?
Is the donor able to have any say about what happens to any embryos which aren't used? Would hate to think they were disposed of, would rather they were donated to another family?
