How Will Donating Eggs Impact My Body?
You might want a family of your own someday or perhaps need more information before becoming an egg donor — either way, it is common to want to know if donating your eggs will impact your body. Well, the short answer is no, but read on as PureOvum has just what you need to learn more about donating your eggs and how it will impact your body.
Will I Experience Physical Changes to My Body?
The most common physical changes an egg donor might experience are related to medication in the weeks leading up to the egg retrieval and the egg retrieval itself. During the retrieval, your body is subject to minor bloating and abdominal cramping. Typically, these symptoms subside within a couple of days and should disappear entirely by the time you start your next menstrual period.
Will Donating Eggs Affect My Future Fertility?
Simply put, no donating eggs does not impact future fertility. You are born with a lifetime supply of eggs — one to two million. When you arrive at puberty, your ovaries have approximately 400,000 eggs. Every menstrual cycle, 15-20 eggs mature inside the follicles inside your ovaries. Typically, only one follicle reaches maturity and releases an egg for ovulation. The rest stop producing and are abandoned by your body.
When you go through the process of donating eggs, you’ll receive medication to fully develop all of the eggs in your follicles that are naturally available in that particular cycle. No more eggs are eliminated than what your body naturally produces.
What are the Risks Associated Future Fertility and the Egg donation Cycle?
As with any medical procedures, there are some risks, but with egg donation, they are rare.
Occasionally, when taking the fertility medications, extra fluid from the ovaries shifts into the abdominal cavity and induces moderate to severe bloating. In mild to moderate cases of OHSS, the fluid is slowly reabsorbed over several days. Approximately 1-3 percent of women experience OHSS.
