What are the side effects of egg donation?

  1.  Brooke Chadwick

    Hello there! Today I’ve been doing some research regarding egg donation and i think I’m rather interested in becoming a donor, since you don’t only help other who need it, but also get money for that, so I’m quite interested, you know. The only thing I haven’t clarified to myself yet is which are the risks involved in this process, I mean, what are the side effects of egg donation, for example, will it affect my future own fertility? I haven’t made up my mind yet, but probably I’d like to have a baby in the future, one of my own, so I want to make sure everything will be okay and once the process is finished, I will be able to totally “forget” about it in terms of fertility and all that staff… Thanks!

    Hello Brooke,

    In principle, if the egg donation process occurs in a normal way, that is, without any extra problem, the egg donor’s fertility is not compromised nohow. And the most common is that no complications are involved or appear during the whole process.

    In fact, egg donors can donate multiple times without their fertility being compromised. This means you can have as many children of your own as you wish, and you can be sure that no added problems derived from the donation you did in the past and/or its medications will appear.

    Here you can find further info about having a baby via egg donation: Having a baby using donated eggs.

    Hope I’ve helped you diminishing the fear you had regarding egg donation and your future fertility. In fact, I encourage you to donate your eggs, since this way you can help many women becoming mothers 😉
