Facts About Egg Donation

Abortion
Women can undergo egg donation if they have had abortions in the past.

Tubal Ligation
Women can undergo egg donation if they have had tubal ligation.

Tattoos and Piercings
Due to the risk of infectious diseases, Egg Donors must wait six months to one year after receiving a tattoo or body piercing before they can undergo egg donation.

Abstinence
Egg Donors are expected to abstain from sexual intercourse while on medications for the egg donation cycle. Egg Donors are extremely fertile while on hormone stimulation medication and run the risk of multiple pregnancy if they do not abstain from sexual intercourse during this time period. Also, sexual intercourse could potentially expose the Egg Donor to sexual transmitted diseases, which would be problematic for the egg donation cycle. A cycle can be cancelled if an Egg Donor engages in sexual intercourse while on medications.

Strenuous Exercise
Egg Donors are expected to restrain from engaging in strenuous exercise from the time they begin stimulation hormones through a couple of weeks after the retrieval to avoid medical complications.

Birth Control Pills
Egg Donors may take birth control pills while waiting to be matched. Egg Donors may or may not be asked to discontinue the use of birth control pills prior to beginning the screening process for an egg donation cycle. Some clinics may require that the Egg Donor remain off of birth control pills for a specified period of time during the initial screening; and all Egg Donors will discontinue the use of birth control pills after they have taken the stimulation medication for a specified period of time.

Depo Provera
Egg Donors must remain off of this medication for several months before they can donate.

Intrauterine Devices (I.U.D.)
Egg Donors who have had an IUD insertion generally may donate without removing the IUD if it does not release any level of hormones. I.U.D.s, such as the Mirena I.U.D., that release hormones may have to be removed prior to egg donation. Be sure to inform Tiny Treasures if you have an IUD insertion.
