egg donor


I just stumbled upon this article and movie about the fertility industry which is encouraging young women to sell their eggs for tens of thousands of dollars. I luckily dodged a bullet with this one as I actually tried to sell my eggs years ago. The first time I tried to do it was right after culinary school when I was so desperate for money to pay back my school loans, at that time I wasn’t really very serious about it and didn’t pursue it very far.

The second time was actually in 2004, fortunately I was already over the age that they prefer for egg donors, or my SAT scores weren’t high enough or my grandfather died from the wrong disease or something…but I went through the whole application process which was very extensive, you had to give any medical history of you and your family. Plus any type of academic honors, lots of photos, dental records you name it.
