Many foreign citizens choose the US as their destination to undergo fertility treatments that are not allowed in their own country.

I was about to travel to USA for egg donation but I applied for tourist visa, so I didn’t get the visa because I was a student and I was not working. If I apply for medical visa to USA, then will it hamper my further studies in USA in the future? Will I get visa for donation?? Is it legal?
people wishing to travel to the United States for medical treatment must satisfy the same requirements as those who apply for a tourist visa, e.g. social and economic ties to the home country, but they must also meet a series of additional requirements. For example, people with any contagious disease may not be able to get a medical visa to the USA.
Every citizen from a foreign country willing to enter the United States for fertility treatment must obtain a valid ESTA Travel Authorization. Such authorization is aimed at those who want to enter the USA temporarily for business, medical assistance, or leisure purposes during a maximum period of 90 days. Once obtained, it is valid for a period of 2 years.
Visa applicants seeking medical treatment in the USA must present evidence to help determine their eligibility for a visa. Even if the applicant meets presents that evidence, he/she may not be issued a visa if he/she is found to be otherwise ineligible.
I hope I have been able to help,
