Every year, college newspapers all over the country advertise large amounts of money to college women who donate their eggs. The BDH is no exception, and we want to make sure that any woman considering egg donation fully understands the process.
Egg donation is a complicated medical procedure that involves extensive screenings, hormone injections, several medical visits and minor and major side effects. This is a relatively unregulated industry and sometimes the large sums of money promised in advertisements don't represent the typical amount that a donor receives.
Any woman who is considering egg donation needs to have an extensive understanding of the process and needs to be prepared to advocate for her own health and safety throughout the process.
Stanford University has developed the Egg Donor Information Project to increase awareness of the risks and benefits of egg donation. We strongly recommend that you read through this site carefully to make an informed decision about egg donation.
