Yes, the egg donation process is very safe with over 20,000 cycles being performed in the United States annually it is considered a routine procedure. The risks of egg donation are relatively low, with serious problems being uncommon.
“There are no long-term adverse risks of IVF” or egg donation,” said Richard J. Paulson, president of the American Society of Reproductive Medicine (ASRM), and head of the infertility program at the University of Southern California – one of the nation’s oldest Egg Donor programs.
During the procedure (the egg retrieval), you will be put to sleep for about 20-30 minutes, so you will not feel anything. Following the procedure, some may experience mild cramping and bloating. You may or may not experience some of the symptoms.
Every person is different, so the effects of the process will vary, but if you feel pain – relax, it is definitely more than manageable.
There is no study showing that being an Egg Donor will affect your fertility in the future. The average woman is born with 2 million eggs. By puberty, that pool consists of about 400,000 follicles (eggs). From these, only 400 will reach maturity and be ovulated. This leaves approximately 399,600 unused. In a typical cycle, a woman generally produces 15-20 eggs. Usually, only one egg is released for ovulation and the body discards the rest. During our ovarian stimulation process, we develop the extra eggs that would otherwise be destroyed. This explains why the normal pool of ovarian follicles is not depleted by egg donation.
You may speak directly with one of our physicians if you would like to discuss this further.
The majority of our Egg Donors do donate multiple times because they find the process to be fulfilling and relatively easy. Egg Donors are able to donate around 3 times per year, depending on the length of the process for each cycle. The maximum according to ASRM is 6 times. Our physicians can help determine this number on an individual basis.
You will need to have two regular periods between cycles or wait 2 months.
Our physician recommends bed rest for at least 24 hours.
To donate eggs, your BMI must be within a healthy range according to guidelines set by the American Society for Reproductive Medicine. Even if it is not the most accurate scale, it does help to estimate a healthy weight-height distribution. In order to compensate for its slight discrepancy, we do accept donors that are considered slightly overweight according to the BMI scale. The reason we have to adhere to these guidelines is that if your BMI is high, your natural fertility may be affected, making the process of egg donation too risky for you. You may not respond well to the necessary ovarian stimulation needed for egg donation. It’s our responsibility to make sure all our Egg Donors are healthy and well enough to donate eggs. Your safety is our main concern which is why these guidelines are in place.
No, you can not be an Egg Donor when you are pregnant. You can also not be an Egg Donor while you are still breastfeeding. However, you can still fill out the pre-screen application to see whether you would be eligible. That way you can find out whether you would be eligible after you completed your pregnancy.
Yes, you can! Birth control removal will be discussed with your Egg Donor coordinator once accepted into the program. When it gets closer to the egg retrieval date, we will provide you with our birth control pills.
