Women who have donated eggs before or women who are interested in egg donation for the first time may be curious about how often they can donate their eggs. Whether it’s because they feel that they’re helping others achieve their dreams of a family or because Family Creations makes the process so much easier, many women choose to donate again and again. If you’re wondering how many times you can donate eggs, read on here to learn more from our experts.

General Guidelines

The general guidelines for egg donation are based on the expertise of each specific fertility treatment center. First and foremost, is the safety of the egg donor. Fertility experts will guide each woman, as each case is different. However, we are here to support your wish to donate your eggs, and we want to see that come to fruition. While most women can donate more than once, how often you can donate eggs depends on your specific situation.

The American Society for Reproductive Medicine states that there is no harm or risks associated with egg donation. The fertility centers we work with will often have you see a doctor and review medical records to make sure there are no health concerns and that it is completely safe for you to donate. If you do wish to donate again and the doctors approve your choice, there is usually a waiting period of at least two regular menstrual cycles between egg donations.

Eligibility for Egg Donation

How many times you can donate eggs is often based on basic health requirements including age and physical fitness. The national guidelines for most donors require that they be between the ages of 21 and 30. Some fertility centers have even stricter guidelines to maximize the success and viability of the donated eggs. With healthier eggs, recipients have a much higher chance of successfully conceiving.
