Will donating effect me having children of my own?

Hello, I am a soon to be second time donor and I have been trying to research all risks associated with donating my eggs. Is there a high risk of not being able to have my own children due to donating?

the doctor should tell you the risk in geting eggs out... :evil:
he could damige you geting them out scaring you or you can grow things from the drugs that can stop you from haveing kids
they don't usesly take them from wimon that haven't finish haveing kids just in cast :shock:
you can grow to menny eggs and pop. if you are tinking of haveing more of you own kids then you shoul tork to your doctor as soon a pospal

you can allways go back to donating eggs after you have finished haveing kids

First of all, thank you on behalf of anyone looking to use donated eggs. For some of us, this is our only hope of ever having a child.

I know of no reason why donating eggs should make you less likely to be able to conceive a child naturally afterwards. The egg donation process stimulates your ovaries to product more than the one or two eggs it might produce in a natural cycle each month. It doesn't use up eggs to the extent you would have none left for yourself.

I have never heard of anyone who has had scarring from egg retrieval (these doctors know what they are doing, they do it most days!) and I do not know of anyone who has 'grown' anything as a result of egg retrieval.

Everyone is entitled to post what they believe on these boards but please take some of the previous comments with a very large pinch of salt. I would not want to see you decide not to donate because of anything you read here.

If you have any concerns at all, please ask your clinic. They are the experts and know your particular case, I am sure they would not proceed if you were not entirely happy with the process.

Once again, thank you for donating
