Egg Donor Program
Side Effects

All donors undergo conventional IVF. This means you will be taking daily doses of fertility medications. Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome (OHSS) is the most common side-effect and you may feel bloated and crampy. You may also experience abdominal swelling, ovarian enlargement, a decrease in urination (rarely), and you may require hospitalization. Sensitivity and tenderness at the injection site can be common during the first few treatments. Some reaction to the medication is also possible.

IVF requires the use of several fertility medications including FSH, (Follistim, Gonal-F, Menapur, etc.), Lupron or Cetrotide, hCG, and others. All of these medications can produce side effects in a comparatively small percentage of women. The side effects may include:

  • Hot flashes
  • Nausea
  • Headaches
  • Visual symptoms
  • Ovarian enlargement
  • Local bruising or redness
  • Ovarian cyst formation
  • Swelling
  • Pain
  • Fluid in the lungs
  • Abdominal bleeding
  • Blood clots
