Common Questions For Egg Donors
The Greatest Gift You Could Ever Give
Wanting to be an egg donor is one of the greatest gifts you could ever give someone. This gift you are about to give is a miracle waiting to happen. It is kindness beyond expression. Creative Love works with families that have infertility issues that have lead them to egg donation, same sex couples or individuals who cannot create their families without the assistance of an egg donor. The decision to become an egg donor is an important one, and not one to be made solely for financial gain. To become an egg donor you do not have to have children. Your Body Mass Index “must” be in line for your height and weight. Having undergone a tubal ligation or an abortion in the past does not interfere with you becoming an egg donor. What’s important is that you must be committed to the entire egg donation process and be able to demonstrate integrity and dependability throughout your egg donation cycle.
As with any medical procedure, there are always health risks involved. If a donor is over-stimulated she may run into the risk of Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome (OHSS), which is quite rare. This occurs in less then 1-3 % donors. This happens when the ovaries become hyperstimulated due to increased hormones and then begin to secrete fluid into the abdomen. OHSS occurs in mild, moderate, and severe forms. Your frequent visits to the medical office will allow your doctor to carefully monitor any signs of OHSS. The treatment for OHSS is observation, rest, and fluids.
