    i have been sat reading through all of your posts and they are so touching.
    i can see the most common question you guys would like to ask a donor is WHY?
    my reasons were very simple suffering from infertility myself i know what it feels like to want a child soo much but its just out of reach.
    for me at least it was just blocked tubes that was the problem and can be over come with ivf, for some women its not that easy, they dont have eggs and need someones help to reach their goal.i felt for me to be able to have the chance of a child someone else deserves that chance also,so it was a no brainer! i also fell out with the nurses on the day of egg collection as i told them if there was an odd number of eggs to give the extra one to the recipient. they wuldnt listen to me until i got angry with them and told them y i felt so strongly about it. the way i see it if my ivf failed i can wait a few months produce some more eggs n try again. the recipient on the other hand if it failed had to wait possibly another two years for another match.
    cant wait to find out if she actually got pregnant my fingers are crossed for her and wish her all the best.

    As a private donor the big questions I get asked are....
    Why are you donating?
    Can you travel?
    Describe yourself.
    Are you disease free?
    Have you been tested?
    Are you willing to donate a sibling in the future?
    How many successes have you had?
    Does your wife know what you're doing?[/color]And about a thousand other questions, but these are the big ones.

    As a private donor the big questions I get asked are....
    Why are you donating? = Having gone through the IVF process and seeing how difficult it can be to get a child, I thought I'd do my bit.
    Can you travel?= Within reason.
    Describe yourself.= Big daft dad.
    Are you disease free?=yes
    Have you been tested?=Yes
    Are you willing to donate a sibling in the future?= Yes
    How many successes have you had?= 4
    Hope this has answered your question Cici.

    I recently registered as a sperm donor after picking up a leaflet in my G.P's surgery and am attending my local NHS hospital. I am finding it a challenge mentally, especially as I have my own kids who are too young to understand. So, coming onto the website and reading people's appreciation for donors has been great. Thank you. P.s hope the choice of username doesnt offend, it was the first word I saw when I looked around the computer when registering!!  :)
