Firstly let me acknowledge that I am yet to do a scrap of research about this. But lately I've been thinking I'd like to help others to have a baby. I couldn't possibly be a surrogate as I suffer immensely from whole pregnancy morning sickness - but I've been wondering about egg donation and what's involved. I'm an almost 30 year old single parent of two boys with no apparent medical issues and I know beyond a shadow of doubt that my little family is complete. If anyone could shed any generalised info it would be much appreciated.

I guess it depends what you want to know! The process? Eligibility? I donated eggs two years ago to a woman I met right here on bubhub.
The process is quite involved - you go through an IVF cycle minus having an embryo placed in your uterus. It usually involves taking the pill to regulate your cycle and synchronise with your recipient, then snorting a nasal spray for a few weeks to supress your ovaries, then injecting hormones for a while to stimulate your ovaries to produce lots of eggs. You have regular ultrasounds to keep an eye on what your ovaries are doing, and when there are enough follicles of a decent size you inject a "trigger" hormone that tells your ovaries to get the eggs ready for release. Just before they release the eggs you have a procedure (under anaesthetic) that takes all the eggs out of your ovaries. Your job is then done! They take the eggs, mix them with some sperm to make an embryo and then put one (or two) back into your recipients uterus. Two weeks later she has a pregnancy test and everyone crosses their fingers hoping for a BFP!
Anything you'd like to know, just ask

I know nada about egg donation but I wish you both every success in donating your oh-so-valuable eggs for another single person or couple who want a baby. I'm always blown away by such kind heartedness and generosity.

I have also donated my eggs and my recipient is now pregnant
To me it was one of the best experiences of my life, it is so rewarding and it is worth every needle jab
