The donor experience

Although this story is from an American site (so the information is not completely relevant to the Australian context) I still feel that it gives a good perspective on some of the unexpected reactions that may occur for a woman who decides to become an egg donor. Remember that in Australia, there is NO paid/compensated donation (altruistic only) and there is no genuinely anonymous donation – donor conceived people (conceived after 2003) have the right to learn their biological identity after they reach adulthood.  Still, for some donors, they will never receive information about the children born from their donation, as the children may not necessarily seek the donor out. https://www.romper.com/p/11-things-that-surprised-me-the-day-i-became-egg-donor-67583
