In a nutshell, they are minimal for donors. All types of medical treatments and procedures have some risks associated with them, however, the risks associated with egg donation are extremely low. At the highly respected clinics with which we work, everything is done to minimise these risks at every stage of the process.
At your first clinic appointment the doctor will discuss the risks with you and the likelihood of you being affected. If it is felt that either your health or fertility would be at risk by donating your eggs, you would not be allowed to continue as an egg donor.
You might have heard about the risks for women going through IVF, but these affect only about 1% of all women undergoing treatment. Any complications that might arise during the process are negligible for egg donors, as these mainly occur in women who are trying to get pregnant during the IVF cycle. As a donor you would not be in this group.
Great care is taken to ensure that you stay safe throughout the whole of your egg donation journey, and you will have the care and support of a dedicated team of people helping you every step of the way.
