I am a good looking smart Repeat Egg donor. My last donation yielded 26 eggs for my IP's but I am having such a hard time finding african american IP's for a second journey. Does anyone know if it is just me or is there

I think its wonderful that you donate your eggs.


As for African-American IPs, I don't know. I don't have any statistics or numbers on how many African-Americans are seeking egg donors. At my own clinic, where I have been a patient for 2 years now, I've seen maybe 2 African-Americans in the waiting room the whole time I've been going there. Most of their other patients seem to be Caucasian Americans or Pakistani. It could be just the region that I live in.

Alisia,


I also think it is wonderful that you are willing to donate your eggs.
