Does egg donation affect fertility?
Unfortunately, the recent medical statistics is quite sad: there are more and more women who have fertility issues. Nobody knows for sure why the number increases drastically because there is not one but a myriad of causes. They can be genetic, inborn, caused by a trauma, dangerous diseases or early menopause etc.
For the woman it is particularly difficult to get used to her infertility diagnosis since she can’t fulfill her main purpose: to become a mother. The constant feeling of her impairment can cause severe depression. Due to the medical breakthrough, infertile women received the chance that can change their lives for better. This breakthrough is called egg donation.
But is it safe for the egg donor?
Does egg donation cause infertility? Isn’t it helping to one person at the expense of another? Let’s get into it.
A lot of young women who are looking for “big and easy” money want to donate their oocytes. They ignore possible side effects and agree to carry out the procedure instantly in the first agency that offers the biggest sum of money. The possible negative consequences are completely their fault. The reputable and trustworthy clinics have quite high demands for a candidate and never agree at once. In semi-illegal medical centers the compensation can be higher than in other places but there you can endanger your reproductive health and even life.
The procedure, carried out by unprofessionals and with low-quality drugs may lead to irreversible changes in hormones and ovaries and other negative effects that may result in infertility and general health deterioration. So before making a decision to donate eggs, think twice about benefits and disadvantages it may have and outweigh particularly for you, evaluate clearly your health condition because you’re also responsible for possible negative consequence if you’ve neglected some medical issues. And don’t be driven by the sum of payment suggested, choose the agency that you can trust and don’t risk since you have only one health and life.
