What are the risks of egg donation for donors?

By Andrea Rodrigo B.Sc., M.Sc. (embryologist).
Last Update: 03/31/2022

The risks that can result from the donation process stem primarily from ovarian stimulation and follicular puncture. Although it occurs occasionally and can be avoided, poorly controlled hormonal stimulation can lead to ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS).

On the other hand, follicular puncture, although simple, is an operation that is performed under anesthesia and therefore is not completely risk-free.
