Health Risks

No procedure or medication is without risk. Serious side effects are very rare, and long-term effects of egg donation have not been discovered. The staff at CDEB and the physicians at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) believe that the health and safety of egg donors is a priority. We will review with each donor individually the potential risks and complications of egg donations.

  • Ovarian Hyper-Stimulation Syndrome (OHSS) of the ovaries, risk is relatively low as monitoring is done by fertility specialist at CIRS
  • Mild to moderate discomfort from blood screenings, fertility injections and the egg retrieval process.
  • Bloating and weight gain due to fertility drugs
  • Mood swings and headaches
