There is a need for limiting how many times a woman can donate her eggs in those countries where there is no limit yet. The chance that donor-conceived children they meet later in life raises health concerns about their potential offspring.
Many young women decide to sell their eggs as a means of supplementing their income thanks to the economic compensation they get. Donors should be aware, however, of the potential long-term risks and make choices accordingly.
The more times a given woman donates her eggs, the higher the chances of inadvertent consanguinity. If children are unaware of their genetic heritage, this may turn out to be a real problem in the future.
