Conceptual Options’ Update: Egg Donors and Contracts – What You Need to Know
One of the most important parts of your Egg Donation process is the legal contract. It is intended to make you feel comfortable, as well as to your Intended Parents whom you will be donating to.
Your generous act will assist a family in need, yet there are many moving parts to this process. The legal side to this process protects you in many ways and makes this a sound, ethical, and legal donation.
Here’s a few things to consider regarding contracts for Egg Donors:
The Nature of Contracts
There are many contracts that you will need to sign as an Egg Donor as you begin your cycle. First, you will sign a contract with Conceptual Options and the IVF Clinic, and then you will also sign a contract with your Intended Parents that is very specific and customized to your journey. You’ll even have input into certain aspects in terms of when and how you’d like to donate.
The contract will state where responsibilities lie, and what you can expect during your cycle. It clears up any gray areas in the world of Egg Donation. If you’d like to be anonymous, all of that is incorporated into your very own contract.
Are Contracts Needed for Egg Donors?
Contracts help everyone understand their full and complete responsibilities. This encourages all parties to do their best to help someone build their dream. It also ensures that you receive all that you are owed during the cycle. Contracts are nothing to be afraid of, in fact they should help you feel more comfortable.
For certain, an Egg Donation contract is put in place to ensure that you are protected, as well as the Intended Parents. If there is anything specific you think you’d like to request in your contract to make you feel more comfortable, all of that can be arranged with the fantastic legal team we work with.
