Should You Donate Your Eggs? We Examine Three Reasons Why You Might

We Examine Three Reasons Why You Might Every young woman who ultimately decides that she wants to donate her eggs for IVF or research will have their own story about why they decided to donate. Oftentimes, it is a combination of several reasons that ultimately convinces the woman to go through with the process. Although it’s a relatively pain-free process, it does take time and require medical visits. Therefore, in order to really make sure you want to go through the process, you should examine why you’re thinking about it in the first place. Women are Delaying Starting Their Families: As women pursue higher education and career goals before they concentrate on starting a family, expect this to be a major reason why young twenty-something females decide to donate their eggs. Finances: As the price of tuition and other living expenses continue to go up, it might be tempting for women to donate their eggs for financial reasons.
