Becoming an Egg Donor: Round Two


Diane (not her real name) has embarked on the journey of becoming an egg donor at CNY Fertility Center and will share her thoughts during the process in her blog here. If Diane’s journey and stories that she shares compels you to look in to becoming an egg donor we would love to get you started. The first step is to fill out our Donor Eligibility Questionnaire – click here to begin.
Round Two:
Good news!  I received a call from the fertility center this week that I have been selected to once again be an egg donor!  I do not know if this is the same recipient as last time or if it is someone new.  Either way, I am just thrilled at having another chance to try and help a couple become a family.
I have to wait on another call from the center before I can begin the process.  They are trying to once again coordinate the cycle of the recipient with my own.  Once they have that organized they can begin bringing me in for my part of the process.
I wonder if the procedure will be any different this time around.  Will the initial steps be the same or will they be able to “fast forward” past some of the baseline information since I’ve already donated?  Will the amounts of hormones be the same or will they increase or decrease?  I wonder if I will produce more eggs this time around?
I am so curious to see how this will play out.  Once again, I am eager and anxious to begin this exciting process!

    thank you so much for sharing this journey with others. i myself did not need an egg donor, but was wondering what it was like from that stand point. Do you ever find out if the cycle was successful? thanks again!

    Thanks for sharing your story with so much detail. It really opened my eyes to the whole process. I do have 1 child and went through many fertility treatments to get pregnant because I have unexplained infertility (everything works fine but for some reason cant get pregnant without help). I can still donate because they retrieve the eggs which is the problem I have; I do not drop the eggs. Anyway, thanks again. I’m sure I will become a donor!
