Lauren is an egg donor in the Houston, TX area and is currently set for her 5th egg donation at the beginning of this year. A few years before Lauren decided to be an egg donor she had discovered that her close friend had polycystic ovarian syndrome and could not have children. At that point she decided she would be a donor for her friend, if possible, and then decided she would be a donor for multiple families looking to have children.
Lauren was matched very quickly after she applied to Egg Donor Solutions in March of 2015. She has since helped multiple families trying to have children. When Lauren was first matched she said she felt unsure of what to expect but that her care coordinator and clinic staff took great care of her. Looking back on the whole process, Lauren says her donations were “easy, and I felt very comfortable the whole time. I never felt alone.”
Lauren traveled for one of her donation cycles to donate in Dallas, TX. When asked how she felt about traveling for a donation she said, “logistically, it was a harder time for me just because of what was going on in my life, but overall everything went just as smoothly as my other cycles!” Since Lauren works in the medical field she was close to her monitoring clinics, making scheduling her appointments very easy to incorporate into her daily routine. Many times, she only had to walk to the clinic from her office on a lunch break.
Although Lauren didn’t know exactly what to expect from the medications, she had done her research on each medication and how it would affect her body. She definitely recommends that all egg donors do their research on medications before beginning a cycle, so they are aware of how their body will react. Lauren shared that she feels very grateful to have the opportunity to become an egg donor and help many families.
