Registration and Approval Process
In order to preserve the integrity and privacy of the forum, you must qualify and be approved as a member. Access to the forum happens in a two-step process:
Step one: Register
In this process you will be asked to provide your first and last name, create a username and password, give us a little information about your interest, and provide us with a working phone number to reach you for verification. We are very serious about restricting this forum ONLY to parents or intended parents via egg donation or embryo donation. We want to make sure you meet our qualifying criteria and that you are not a journalist, from the media, reporter, doctor’s office employee, egg donor agency personnel, lawyer, or someone's nosy mother in-law. So yes, we do call, and no we don't accept registrations that are incomplete. If you have any questions about our membership approval process, please call: 503 987 1433. We strive to respond to all registration requests within 3 business days.
Once your registration is approved, you will receive an email confirming the approval and alerting you that you can login with the name and password that you requested in the registration.
Step Two: Membership payment
The first time that you login, you will be asked to choose an annual or lifetime membership payment option, and will be prompted to complete the payment process through PayPal. Once the payment is completed, you will have immediate full access to the forum.
The PVED Forum and all PVED online discussion groups hosted on other social media platforms are subject to the Forum Community Rules available here: Forum Community Rules.
Infertility is a really tough path to travel – especially when you feel like you are alone. That’s what makes the PVED community so great, you don’t have to trek through the jungle of egg donation, embryo donation, or egg donor surrogacy alone. PVED proudly offers a private, safe, active, and close-knit community. We firmly believe in creating strong communities. We actively support individuals and families who are in the process or have created their family via egg donation or surrogacy. There are no others like it on the internet!
There are over 25 boards within the forum itself everything from A-Z regarding third party egg donation, embryo donation, and egg donor surrogacy.
Because talking about infertility can be incredibly painful and isolating, we offer our Members Only Private Forum. We completely understand how important your Privacy is to you! And that is why our forum is ONLY for moms, dads, and parents-to-be to converge and converse about every aspect of egg donation, embryo donation, or egg donor surrogacy.
This is the place where we let our hair down, ask tough questions, compare clinics, agencies, statistics, and talk about everything and anything to do with egg donation. That means what happens in the forums stays in the forums.
These forums are not for physicians, nurses, social workers, therapists, egg donors, children of egg donation, egg donor agencies, lawyers, or other industry professionals. It’s also not a place for your parents, in-laws, co-workers, neighbors, or friends. (The only exception is if one of the above is an intended parent, or a parent via egg donation themselves). It’s just for you.
What really happens in the forum and what do I get for a yearly or lifetime subscription?
