Share Your Thoughts: What Do Women Need to Know About Egg Donation?

By Rachel Walden — July 18, 2011

Women are being sought to complete an online survey about egg donation to help inform the creation of a website to answer women’s question about the egg donation process, including medical and legal concerns.

The survey is being conducted by the organization Generations Ahead and the Health Equity Institute at San Francisco State University. Questions address work, family, and money issues, as well as what you know about egg donation.

From the organizations:

The survey only takes 15-20 minutes and it is completely anonymous. We are looking for women with all kinds of experiences to fill out this survey. They do not need to have been a donor, or even have thought about donating to participate. We would love to hear from any woman who has been even curious about the process or the money involved.

We will use the information we collect here to make sure women’s voices are inserted into this debate and to design a website to give women comprehensive, unbiased information so that they can make the best decision for themselves.
