What Precautions to Take Before Egg Donation

A woman planning and thinking.

Once you’ve decided to become an egg donor, enroll in our egg donation program or visit our fertility clinic in Beverly Hills, California. You’ll be provided with complete guidelines and details by our skilled professionals, and we also recommend you to do your own research.

In this blog post, we’ll discuss some lifestyle changes that you’ll need to make before becoming an egg donor.

Prepare yourself mentally

Although the driving force behind your decision is to help someone, don’t forget that you’re at the center of this arrangement.

Hence, if you begin to feel overwhelmed or nervous, step back and reevaluate your decision.

Following through with the process requires commitment and a realization that the stress is short-lived, and will likely be over in 3 months.

Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle

When selecting an egg donor for recipient parents, those with healthy lifestyles are preferred.

A few months prior to the egg retrieval day, it is recommended that you abstain from tobacco, recreational drugs and alcohol.

Maintain a healthy balanced diet. Ensure your immunizations are up to date. For specific health queries and supplements, reach out to your clinic.

Keep in mind that 60% of the products we apply to our skin get absorbed into our bodies. PFCs, (perfluorinated chemicals), when absorbed, can adversely impact egg cells. Therefore, be mindful of the creams you apply!

Work out

While exercise must always be part of one’s routine, people are likely to slack once the demands of everyday life kick in.

Sticking to a fitness plan can help boost blood flow and your egg quality significantly increases when the BMI (Body Mass Index) stays within the normal range.

Stay Positive

You’ll need a support system when making a gracious commitment like this one. The process will have its ups and downs but your resilience will allow you to power through.
