Egg donation is where a woman donates her egg to another woman thereby assisting her to conceive and have a child.
Now let's look at the difference between Egg donation and IVF:
IVF stands for in-vitro fertilization. It is a process where the male sp*rm and the female egg are fertilized together in a test tube. The resulting embryo is inserted into the female’s uterus in order to achieve pregnancy.
The IVF procedure is ideal for men who can’t produce enough sp*rm or for females with fallopian tubes problems.
Egg donation is a process where one woman donates her eggs to another female who is not able to produce healthy eggs or who has second infertility.
There are reasons why a woman may be unable to produce healthy eggs.
1. Age: As a woman gets older, the quality of her eggs reduces. Smoking, obesity or being overweight and excessive alcohol drinking may also reduce the quality of a woman’s eggs.
But it’s not just lifestyle habits and age that can reduce egg quality.
According to researchers, medical conditions such as:
2. Pelvic inflammatory disease and endometriosis reduce egg quality.
Requirements for Egg Donation:
The following are the basic requirements to donate eggs:
1. You should have both ovaries.
2. No smoking, no current psychoactive drugs usage.
3. Psychologically and physically healthy.
4. BMI(Body Mass Index) 19-29.
5. Not using IUD, injections or any birth control pills.
6. Have regular menstrual cycles.
7. No family history of inheritable genetic disorders.
8. For you to be a donor, you need to refrain from taking alcohol or drugs.
Egg donation is a process that requires you to be physically and mentally prepared. And although egg donors are well compensated for their donations, don’t let it be the primary reason why you want to become an egg donor.
Keep in mind this process requires injecting yourself with fertility drugs that may have an impact on both your physical and mental health. Although the effects are not permanent, you should be ready to experience some physical changes.
But aside from all that, when you donate your eggs, you are helping another woman and family who is in need of a child.
