I just got Essure, which is permanent sterilization for women without invasive surgery, and if it works, in a few months I should never have to worry about getting pregnant. After reading this FML, I think I should probably have my gynecologist rip out everything and set it on fire, just to be certain.

This isn't any of my business, but why wouldn't someone want kids? Do you know how many other people can't have kids and would like to? If some does decide to not have kids, they should atleast donate their eggs. It sounds pretty insensitive to not only take for granted the gift to bare life and openly tell everyone on the internet.
Chill out #12 it was just a joke. lol. I'm pretty sure the thought of their kid getting sick hasn't put anyone off having one, nor will a comment on FML. Jeez. And, no, no one is obligated to give their eggs. Kids aren't for everyone and that's perfectly fine.
#12 - my only thought is why would you donate your eggs when there are already plenty of children born without willing or able-bodied parents? I'm a HUGE supporter of adoption. If someone can't have children, they should adopt a child. But that's just my opinion.
#12, so I should want kids because other people can't have them??? Your logic is dumb. For me I don't want kids but I want my DNA to go on so I'm looking into donating my eggs. So those people you mentioned have chance at having a kid and my DNA goes on without me having to raise a child. There, everyone's happy.
12, I hate kids, and the thought of pregnancy terrified me. It's not just the bodily fluids, though disgust of those contributes...it's that overall, when I envision a life in which I were partnered and spawning, I feel sick to my stomach and my soul. I cannot imagine any circumstances under which I would cure children as anything other than a draining, life-sucking burden. I'm well aware that most people don't feel this way, and that there are many who would kill to trade places with my pre-fixed self, but children would be as bad for me as I would for them. Also, I'm no longer considered to be at an optimal egg donation age, since I'm in my thirties. Even if I were, I've heard about what the donation process entails, and I'd like to go through it about as much as I'd like to donate any other organ while I'm still alive.
Being a kid is completely different from having one. Some view children as gifts, others can't see them as anything but parasites. Your body changes a lot with pregnancy and if they don't view children well, some can't suddenly change when ones IN them. One isn't exactly a choice as well. I can't fully explain, I actually don't see them that way and might want children. But I can also understand others feel differently and can't help it. And they shouldn't have to for some judgemental strangers. And even if someone has eggs to donate and plan on not wanting kids, it doesn't mean they should donate. That's still taking part of their body and it's understandable why they wouldn't want to do it. Should everyone able to be forced to give blood? Should everyone be forced to give up their organs upon death? Should everyone with spare money be forced to donate to charities? No, it should be a choice. It's donation, not requirement. Not even starting on if people see their genes as harmful to pass on. And I thought you actually had to go through a lot to even be approved to donate them.
everyone is saying adoption but unless the entire population of people unable to conceive are made of money i can understand why that's not always the option that comes to mind because I understand it's a very expensive and lengthy process..my husband and I have been trying and so far nothing but if we are unable to have a baby it breaks my heart because we most likely don't have the means to just adopt or have a surrogate
I understand why people are upset with my comment, but that is my opinion and that's that. I support adoption, but that is another topic. I am referring to people who can't adopt or just really want to have their own kid and are upset by it. I will however reword my statement about donating eggs. People should take into consideration the thought of donation. Personally, if one of my friends/family was hurting, I would definitely jump at the opportunity to help.
In-vitro with donated eggs is more expensive than adoption. It also leaves a child in the foster care system which can be pretty awful. There's also the fact that the number of donated eggs isn't a limiting factor in whether or not a couple can get eggs for in-vitro fertilization, the supply is large enough that money is the only limiter. Not everyone wants kids and we don't need everyone to have kids in order to keep up our population.
Sheesh, I can't stand when people think there is something wrong with you, or feel the need to change you, if you don't want kids... You can't have an opinion on someone else's life and expect them to be like "huh, you're right. I SHOULD have kids even though they don't fit my lifestyle and I don't have the slightest interest in being a parent." Like seriously not having kids is perfectly normal. And in my opinion, not having kids is actually helping our overpopulation problem. Have a kid. Don't have a kid. Idc. Do you. And let others do what they want.
I feel for you. My mom once had to wake me up while I was puking in my sleep.
