Due to disease, I rely on an egg cell donation to have children (I am in my twenties). I am aware that there are many fertility clinics in various countries which offer egg cell donation. However, I have not yet found a solution I feel comfortable with, for the following reasons. First, I have found that fertility clinics typically match donors and recipients based on phenotype, which does not mean much to me. However, feeling connected to the donor regarding values feels important to me, which is why I post in this forum. Second, by accepting a donation, I do not want to exploit anyone. I would like to know that the donation will not only be an immense gift to me, but that the donor also experiences happiness from sharing her genetic material.
Do you have any ideas how I could go about finding a donor in the EA community? Also, I was wondering if anyone in the community has ever donated or considered donating? If yes, what were or would be your motives, and would you be open to donation in a setting where you would know to which specific person the donation goes to?
