What steps do I have to follow?+

What risks does donation have?+
The risks are minimal; the process is generally well tolerated and only exceptionally involves some risk such as ovarian Hyperstimulation syndrome, which consists of an exaggerated response to treatment.
The treatment is personalized and donor control is periodic minimizing any risk.
Do I have to be admitted for the operation?+
The egg retrieval is performed in the operating room under sedation. It is a process that requires a stay in the clinic of 2-3 hours. After performing a gynecological assessment the patient can go home following specific recommendations.
How many times I can donate?+
The number of cycles that can be done in the clinic depends on several factors.
According to the Assisted Reproduction Act in force in our country, the maximum number of children born to a single donor cannot exceed six.
Could I have children if I am a donor?+
Yes, donating eggs does not mean that they will be used up or accelerate the loss of them.
In each normal cycle several eggs begin to grow but in the end only one will grow enough to reach ovulation. With treatment, we get a number of eggs to reach the right size to mature without affecting the total number of eggs that a woman has.
Is it confidential?+
The gamete bank, donor registers and the center’s activity are obligated to ensure the confidentiality of donor information.
