After talking to friends and acquaintances about this whole process, I realized just how many people don’t understand this whole process.
What happens to the eggs? When are the embryos ready for transfer? How long does it take to find out the recipient is pregnant? And how do you move forward with your life after donating eggs?
My situation is a little different from some in that my situation is what’s called a “known donor” transfer.
A friend of my family asked me if I would donate my eggs to her, and I said yes. Therefore, she knew her donor. A large percentage of people receive eggs from an unknown donor — or, a person they’ve never met.
