Conclusion

There are several deep-rooted perils inherent to egg donation.

Care must be taken to ensure that the health of the donor is never compromised. At a time when there is a universal dearth for human eggs, and fertility centers the world over are looking to countries like India, the potential for commodification and misuse is high. There is an urgent need for rules that are patient-, doctor- and donor- friendly to be formulated and implemented in developing countries. Incessant policing needs to be carried out by regulatory bodies and accountability must be reinforced. There is a need to promote altruism through public education.

Advances in scientific technology, such as those employed in ART, should be taken out of the clutches of a lucrative few and be made available to all those infertile couples whose dream is to have a child of their own.

The concept of egg donation risk is always relevant for egg donors and recipients of these donor eggs. The world is becoming more ethical and people do not want to embark on any thing which will pose potential harm to a person willing to do good.

For donors, their fertility is not adversely impacted. The period on hormone treatment is for a minimal period and egg donors are carefully assessed during this short period to ascertain whether the medication should be increased or lowered in accordance with her body's response to the stimulation.

In the event that a woman experiences some challenges with conception or fertility later in life after the donor program, it is not likely a consequence to this. Examples include uterine or tubal problems. The screening process for a program requires review of the ovaries, not necessarily the entire reproductive system. Also, sperm plays a role.

The actual retrieval of the eggs is a vaginal process undertaken either under sedation or general anaesthetic. This is also not a risky process. Donor eggs retrieval or harvesting is not an operation, rather an extraction of the eggs from the follicles of the ovaries. This does not involve any cutting or scarring of the ovarian tissue.

After this program, the ovaries will appear slightly different, but not unnatural, just like they have been stimulated. Egg donors are encouraged to remain in contact with the medical practitioner in the event of any concerns.

There is no increased risk for a person receiving eggs. There is extensive screening for people who donate on all levels - by the agency, social level and medical review.
