Basic information about birth control and egg donation
Many women wonder whether they can donate their eggs if they take birth control. Our Southern California egg donation agency wants you to know that the answer is yes. Here is some more detailed information about birth control and egg donation.
You can become an egg donor if you are taking birth control pills. However, you may need to stop taking them before you undergo fertility testing or an egg donation cycle. During this time, we recommend that you use an alternative method of contraception, such as a condom.
You can also become an egg donor if you use a birth control patch, NuvaRing or a hormonal IUD. Just as with birth control pills, you will need to stop using these methods of birth control before you start the egg donation process. If you have a non-hormonal IUD, it can typically remain in place.
If you are using Depo-Provera or a Norplant device, you will need to stop using it for approximately one to three months. You will also need to have had at least one normal menstrual cycle before you can donate. It can often take this long to get selected. As a result, you can still be part of the program while you wait.
What you need to know about egg donation and tubal ligation
If you have undergone a tubal ligation (also known as ‘having your tubes tied”), you can donate your eggs. This is because your fallopian tubes are not part of the egg donation process.
