Women who Volunteer to serve as egg donors have a chance to give infertile couples a precious gift: a baby to call their own. Egg donation is a simple medical procedure. Thousands of women donate eggs each year.
Why do couples or individuals need an egg donor's help to get pregnant? There are a number of reasons why infertile couples or individuals need donor eggs in order to have a baby. Some women suffer from early menopause in their 20's and 30's. Other women lose their ovaries as a result of surgery for severe gynecological diseases such as endometriosis or ovarian cancer. Although a woman may run out of healthy eggs in her 40's or lose her ovaries to premature menopause or surgery, her uterus remains a healthy place to have a baby, other women have genetic or other medical issues.
