No. All of your medications, ultrasounds, and labs necessary to donate are covered by Poma
By the time you arrive at puberty, you have about 400,000 eggs. Each month, the body recruits a single egg from this month’s antral follicles to mature. The remaining eggs experience atresia and are no longer available. With egg donation, you take medication to help mature most of this month’s follicles – thus having a purpose for the eggs that would have otherwise been normally lost to you. There is no evidence that Egg Donation has any effect on future fertility or timing of menopause.
The most common side effect of IVF medications is bloating. This is due to the fact that multiple follicles on your ovaries will begin to grow and thus, the size of your ovaries enlarge. Other potential side effects, though not common are headaches, nausea, and temporary weight gain.
As with any procedure, there carry theoretical risks of bleeding and infection though these are considered to be quite rare. We will ask you to stop any high impact exercise after the 5th day of medication to prevent torsion (twisting) of your ovaries. You should not resume sexual intercourse until you have your period (which typically comes 7-10 days later) after the retrieval to avoid an unplanned pregnancy.
