Reporter Notebook: Should amphibious vehicles have the same maintenance protocols as aircraft? As a struggling California college student, I had seen the fliers posted across campus and read the advertisements in the school paper.
I was exactly the demographic donor agencies were targeting — young, healthy, educated and strapped for cash. I viewed egg donation as a way to help couples who were desperate to conceive, while also paving the way to a debt-free postgraduate life for myself.
I passed all the pre-screenings with flying colors. The doctors told me I was the perfect donor, reproductively healthy in every way.
Two babies were eventually born as a result of my eggs, and I moved on with life feeling good about the role I had played in their conception. Six months later my body began to fail me. I had always been a healthy and active woman, but suddenly I was crippled by pain and unable to live the life I had once enjoyed. I was soon diagnosed with stage IV endometriosis, a disease my doctors now believe was pushed into overdrive as a result of the potent hormones involved in my egg donation protocols. I quickly lost my own ability to conceive and spent the next three years fighting to regain my health.
But I will never be able to retrieve what has been lost. But I can say that I have grown to deeply question the ethics and health risks involved in egg donation. The United States is one of only a few countries that allow a profit to be made through egg donation. Elsewhere, egg donations face similar restrictions as organ donation — purely because of the risks and invasive procedures involved. This initiative, however, essentially suggests we target a population of struggling women in order to coerce them into taking on these risks — risks they may not otherwise have ever considered, were it not for the dollar attached.
I will admit that my case is unique, but it is not unheard of. In fact, not long after my initial infertility diagnosis, the agency I donated through informed me they had a long history of working with former egg donors who went on to encounter their own fertility problems. They said they would love the opportunity to help me find an egg donor if I ever decided to pursue that path to family building. Something about that struck me as odd. How common could my situation possibly be among other egg donors?
Should women who are healthy and fertile enough to donate their eggs to others really be seeking egg donors themselves just a few years down the line? There are no solid facts or evidence-based research to tell us about the s of egg donors who do go on to experience health and fertility issues after retrieval.
Whether we want to admit it or not, reproductive medicine is a big business, and that kind of information would likely hurt their bottom line. When I donated, the risk of future infertility was listed as one of the many possible side effects of the process, but Housewives seeking nsa Power Montana, I never thought it would happen to me. Other dangers listed included ovarian hyperstimulation, a condition of overproduction not totally uncommon to the drugs involved, which can lead to ovarian torsion, rupture, and renal insufficiency.
