Egg donation is a process that requires the administration of hormonal medication to the future donor, as well as the passage through the operating room for egg retrieval. Therefore, there are a number of risks before and after egg donation, which are detailed in this post.

It is not dangerous to the point of serious health consequences, but it is important for the donor to be aware of possible symptoms in order to avoid the development of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome.
