7. Will I undergo surgery?
No. Your eggs will be retrieved vaginally. This involves needle aspiration or a "suction needle". There is no cutting, no scar. You will be under conscious sedation for 20 minutes and will have someone attend the retrieval with you and in close contact with you after. We are available for you during the entire process.
8. Will I be able to have children after egg donation?
Yes. Your body has forty thousand potential eggs. A donor cycle can yield approximately 10 - 20 eggs. Many donors donate several times and then go on to have children of their own.
