Anna: Why I became a Cryos egg donor
Anna is a Cryos egg donor who knew she wanted to help create families after seeing the joy donating eggs brought to others, and meeting someone who was a donor egg child. Watch Anna talk about her experience with being a Cryos donor and why she chose to take part in this journey.

- Have both ovaries
- Willing to take daily injections for approximately 7-14 days.
- Be willing to take oral birth control pills

As an egg donor, you help others struggling to conceive make their dream come true, which is a truly selfless act. Cryos is very grateful to the young women who decide to help others by donating their eggs.
Infertility is very common and may affect 15 percent of all couples. Couples and individuals who choose to use donor eggs have often exhausted every other type of fertility treatment throughout years of conception attempts. Without egg donors like Anna, these couples would have little hope.
