Plugged In: Fertility industry booms online | Health |

Plugged In: Fertility industry booms online | Health | "More and more people have literally found life on the Internet as the estimated $3 billion fertility industry moves increasingly online.

But as with all online commercial ventures, shopping on the Web can carry risks.

In this case, the Internet may provide consumers -- often people desperate to have a child -- a faster and more discreet way to find egg or sperm donors. But it can also lead to lost money and broken dreams, say fertility experts.

Other experts say hopeful recipients may be asked by less reputable egg donor sites to pay large, nonrefundable sums upfront to see profiles, or be made to wait for months for donors that never materialize."

Don't let anyone take you for a ride - caveat emptor still applies !
