Feelings of regret after donating my eggs

Feelings of regret after donating my eggs

    • nickirollins

      Hello ladies,

      I’m an egg donor from Ohio, USA and I did my last donation a few months ago after seeing several ads at college… I wasn’t thinking and I saw such a big amount of money that I said why shouldn’t I? and just visited an egg donor bank. It was so easy that it all went by so fast… I decided to be an anonymous donor because I didn’t want to know about the baby or his parents, just in case. Now I can’t help wishing to see his or her face, wondering if he’s happy… it’s like if I had given up a baby of mine for adoption, you know? It’s a mix of negative feelings, but I don’t know how to get rid of it…

      Can someone help? Please, I’m just 24.

    • Hey nicki, the same happened to me… I’m 33 now, but I did it by the time I was 22… I was studying at college by then, too. But I became aware of this “method” through a friend of mine who had already did so… and the sum of money she got for that was too high that I wanted to get the same.

      My feelings of regret started because I found out one day that I didn’t want to remain anonymous anymore… I found myself CURIOUS and still today I can’t help it… It crosses my mind often, but there’s nothing I can do, so I’ve learned to live with day. I would like to talk with past egg donors to see if this feeling is common… regret, grief, pain, a feeling of “loss”… I don’t know, but I don’t wanna feel so lonely.
