The ideal age for an egg donor is between the ages of 21 and 30. However, many egg donor agencies will not accept a new donor into their pool over the age of 29, since it can sometimes take up to a few months to get chosen by an intended parent.
Yes, you can still get pregnant after donating your eggs. Although there are a few side effects that can occur in very rare instances, the egg retrieval process will not impact your future fertility, and most women who have donated their eggs go on to have healthy pregnancies
It's essential that you take stock of your physical symptoms after your egg retrieval procedure, even though it's likely you'll be able to return to your normal routine shortly afterward. Most egg donors report abdominal cramping, some bleeding, and constipation – symptoms similar to those of menstruation
Egg donation is a method of assisted reproduction in which a woman donates her eggs (oocytes) which are used to help another woman have a baby. Donor eggs may be combined with the male partner's sperm or with donor sperm.
There are several requirements that egg donor needs to meet before they can donate. As well as being between the ages of 18 to 30 and in good physical and mental health, egg donors need to be height and weight proportionate and have a BMI that's lower than 33.
Egg retrieval involves a surgical procedure with a mild sedative (called twilight anesthesia) given through an IV. The person will breathe on their own throughout the surgery, but they won't remember or feel anything
The egg retrieval is done under sedation so a donor will not experience pain during the procedure. After the procedure, a donor will generally feel tired from the sedation and she may experience some bleeding and/or cramping. This usually goes away by the next day but can last up to a week or longer.
The ideal egg donor candidate will have good fertility health. This means that she should have two functioning ovaries and regular menstrual periods. Furthermore, she should be between the ages of 21 and 31, as this is the time in a woman's life in which she is likely the most fertile.
Donors can gain approximately 3-5 pounds in weight due to an increase in the size of their ovaries and associated fluid retention (taller women may gain more). This is temporary and should resolve completely following your first period after your donor cycle is complete.
