The Problem With Donor Eggs....

Donor Eggs Over 40, Pregnancy Over 40

First, let me say that I personally know three women who had babies using donor eggs, and they collectively have five beautiful children.

However, using donor eggs is a big decision which requires much thought. I was given the option of using donor eggs when I went through fertility treatments, however, aside from the exorbitant cost of paying for the donor and all the associated expenses, I couldn't get used to the idea of having a third party involved.

Here are some things to think about when using donor eggs:

1. Many fertility clinics have age cut-offs for women in their 40's unless they're using donor eggs. If you have unexplained infertility in your 40's, donor eggs are probably going to work as well in a year or two from now as they will if you used them today (assuming you are in good health). TTC naturally may be worth a try first.

2. Before you embark on fertility treatment with donor eggs, you may want to think about what you are going to tell relatives and friends about your child. Your child may not want everyone knowing that they were conceived with a donor egg.

3. Is the donor going to remain anonymous? I know one couple who found their donor through an ad in the paper and they have a lengthy legal contract with the woman who donated the eggs. They all met and know each others names, etc.

4. What about the egg donor? Many of these women are young college-age students, who may be lured in with the money and they don't really understand the risks of taking fertility drugs...knowing what I know now about fertility drugs and the complications I suffered, I would never put myself through that for any amount of money. I wouldn't want to put anyone else through it either.

Donor eggs are becoming big business - here is an article that talks about some of the ethical issues:
