Medications prescribed to egg donors for inducing ovulation contain hormones and this can cause fluid retention. However, the treatment lasts only 10 days, so the weight gain is not usually too significative. It is uncommon for egg donation to cause egg donors to gain weight.
Can I gain weight during the ovum donation process?
