On the other hand, the use of an egg donor further increases the chances of success since most donors are tested through fertility. Our success rate with an egg donor is over 80%.

They are discomfort similar to what you may experience during menstruation.
Do you have any risk or side effect?
Most donors do not experience any side effects. You should know that, in exceptional cases, there may be an excessive response to treatment (ovarian hyperstimulation). However, being under permanent medical control, our professionals will detect and treat any indication of risk, however minimal.
Can it affect my fertility in the future?
The donation does not reduce your number of eggs or your chances of getting pregnant in the future. In fact, in each cycle, women naturally lose hundreds of ovules that do not mature. In each ovarian stimulation treatment, the ovules of a single cycle are obtained, which, under normal circumstances, would be lost.
What women need donor eggs?
The recipients are women who do not have a sufficient quantity of ovules or who do not have the quality necessary to achieve a pregnancy. Most of the time the cause is the age of the woman and the delay – more and more usual – of the pregnancy search. But they also need donor eggs younger women who can not use ovules because of illness or treatment (chemotherapy, early menopause, etc.) Women who manage to be mothers thanks to the help of other women feel a deep appreciation towards them.

Donation is always an altruistic, anonymous and voluntary act.

Can I donate if I take contraceptives?
Yes, you can be a donor even if you use hormonal contraceptives (oral, patch, ring), although you should temporarily leave them during the ovarian stimulation process. You can reuse hormonal contraceptives once you have extracted the ovules and you have lowered the period.
Can I have sex during the process?
Sexual intercourse is not recommended from the start of ovarian stimulation and until the donor has the first menstrual period after the puncture. The reason is that there is a risk of a multiple gestation that can lead to an ovarian torsion.
