Egg Donor FAQ's
What is the minimum age for being an egg donor?
You should be between 20 and 30 years of age and be married.
Are there any risks to being an egg donor?
In a good clinic which monitors you carefully , the risk of egg donation is negligible !
What is super ovulation? Does it really need to be done?
Many egg donors are understandably reluctant to take injections when donating their eggs ! " I am young, healthy and fertile, so why do I need to take injections. Can't we just donate the one egg I grow every month " is a common question ! Superovulation forms the heart of modern IVF. We use medications to help you grow more eggs. Every month you start to grow about 30-40 follicles, but in a natural cycle, most of these undergo atresia (die), so that only one matures every month, in the normal course of events. With the help of medications, we are able to rescue follicles which would otherwise have died, so that we can help you to grow many mature eggs in one cycle.It's important that you grow many eggs as this allows us to create many embryos in the IVF lab, thus increasing the chances of success !
How many eggs will be taken from me?
On an average, egg donors grow between 8 to 16 mature eggs every time they donate their eggs.
Will I need my husband's permission for becoming an egg donor?
Why I donated my eggs!
It is a true pleasure for me to write those few words of recommendation for Dr. Malpani.I visited the centre 3 months ago enquiring about wanting to donate eggs. The first thing that put me into immediate ease was the staff and their excellent care towards the patient.The whole process of donating eggs took less than 15 minutes. I could take the medicines at home and just visit the clinic for scans - which was a great convenient for a workingwoman like me. There was no pain, no problems at all. Everything went smoothly !
It was indeed a great feeling to help other people who are not able to produce their own.Certain things like these - donating eggs being one, cannot be made or bought off the counter. Hence, I suggest you all to help if you can!
I'd also like to compliment the lovely team of receptionists, as well as the sisters who have always been very pleasant, positive and attentive to my needs.
