Can I be an egg donor?
Yes. Non-smoking, healthy women may wish to become egg donors. Being an egg donor allows you to share fertile eggs either with a family member or friend, or anonymously. You will be compensated.
Once accepted, you will need daily injections of fertility drugs that cause you to develop multiple eggs instead of the single egg usually created each month. When your eggs are ready, they are removed through the vagina, under sedation, in a ultrasound-guided procedure. You will be asked to sign consent forms as part of egg donation. It may take two-three weeks for the fertility medication to leave your system. Most studies show no evidence of long-term effects or changes in fertility, although a possible link has been suggested between fertility medications and an increase in the lifetime risk of ovarian cancer.
