Excited to donate again

"I am very pleased with the whole experience. I can’t wait to do it again! Everyone was very kind and helpful! The best part was receiving a letter from the Intended Parents. I feel so blessed to be able to help them and seeing their appreciation is an indescribable feeling. I want to thank everyone for the great experience and can’t wait to see you all again." - Testimonial from Anonymous - PFC Egg Donor

This has been a life changing experience

"Becoming a donor was scary and exciting at the same time. I had done my research so I had an idea of what I was going to be doing and what was going to be happening to my body, but you can't know the full experience until you try it. My first time donating I had difficulty injecting myself with the hormones because of my fear of needles, but I very quickly built a tolerance. I had hardly any symptoms at all and it really didn't hurt like I thought it would. My first time at the clinic I was in aw of how beautiful it was and how friendly all of the staff was. Everyone was smiling and you could tell that they all loved their jobs, which was important to me.

I was also lucky enough to meet the intended parents (of course no personal information was shared), which was one of the most memorable encounters of my life. While I was walking down the hallway to meet this couple, I was shaking with nerves and my mind was racing. I was scared they wouldn't like me or I wouldn't like them. When I walked in the room, I could tell they both felt the exact same way. One of them was shaking so incredibly hard, I had to hug them. Right at that moment I knew this was going to be one of the most incredible things I'd ever done. We talked and laughed and it felt as if I had known them forever and we were all just friends catching up. Meeting them and knowing how grateful they were just made the whole experience that much better.

The day of the actual harvest, I was once again terrified. Luckily my mother was with me so she helped calm me down. The procedure went very quickly and I woke up feeling fine. I had minor cramps and bloating but nothing horrendous. I rested for a short while and then was discharged (which was when I received my check). I spent the rest of the day resting and felt great the next day. Shortly after I returned home, I received a call from the agency letting me know that they had a successful pregnancy. I can't fully describe the feeling that I had at that moment. I overjoyed and excited and so happy for that couple that I knew I would love to do it again. So I did. I have now just finished my second cycle and everything went just as smoothly as the first time. I did not get to meet the intended parents this time, but it was still worth it. Just knowing that I helped or at least tried to help someone start a family is worth it to me.

Overall, both experiences were wonderful. I absolutely love the staff and would definitely donate again. This has been a life changing experience and I wouldn't change a single thing about it. I would recommend donating to anyone who is capable and willing because you are granting someone's wish and creating a miracle, and that feeling is unbelievably satisfying." - Testimonial from Jamie - PFC Egg Donor

I never felt alone

"My entire experience as an egg donor was amazing. I felt very blessed to have the unique opportunity to provide a wonderful, deserving couple with my eggs. Giving my recipients the chance to become parents to a healthy baby was my privilege and I would gladly do it again. PFC upheld their reputation for being the best agency in the US. The staff is professional, well-trained, friendly, and always helpful. I never felt alone in this process. The entire PFC team is like a family. I felt safe and comfortable and everything was taken care of when I needed anything. I can’t wait to hear the outcome…my prayers are with my recipients every day; like I said, this entire process was awesome." - Testimonial from Lynn – PFC Egg Donor

New hope for a childless couple

"I had a wonderful experience with your program. From my first phone call asking about becoming an ovum donor to my final checkup, I was treated with kindness and professionalism. Lori and the others were patient to answer all of my questions, as were the staff members at Pacific Fertility Center.

Becoming an ovum donor was not a small decision for me . . . I was convinced of the ethical and medical soundness of the program before I went forward with it, and I was not disappointed. I quickly became used to the shots, and experienced only mild side effects (moodiness and bloating). It was exciting to see my body respond to the treatments as I daily got closer to giving my recipient the opportunity to bring a new life into the world.

It's such a neat feeling to know I have helped to give new hope to a childless couple. My recipient is pregnant and besides the birth of my own children, I can think of few things more satisfying than making a major contribution to the happiness of another." - Testimonial from Clair - PFC Egg Donor
