Will donating my eggs harm my future ability to have children?

By the time you arrive at puberty, you have about 400,000 eggs.  Each month, the body recruits a single egg from this month’s antral follicles to mature.  The remaining eggs experience atresia and are no longer available.  With egg donation, you take medication to help mature most of this month’s follicles – thus having a purpose for the eggs that would have otherwise been normally lost to you.  There is no evidence that Egg Donation has any effect on future fertility or timing of menopause.

Meet the Director of the Donor Program

Linda Alexander graduated with her master’s as a Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner from the University of California, San Francisco, and later went on to another Master’s Program and graduated with her Certified Nurse of Midwifery from the Frontier School of Midwifery in 1995. She has published a chapter in High-Risk Obstetrics in Comprehensive Maternity Nursing (Lippincott) and has been an active Mentor for both Nurse Practitioners and Midwives over the years. Linda’s passion for Fertility care stems from her own fertility journey and knowing firsthand what longing for a child feels like. She began performing IUI’s starting in 1989.  Linda left the world of delivering babies night and day in 2007 and entered the profession of Reproductive Medicine and the Specialty of Third-Party Fertility full time. Here, Linda found great joy in assisting those desiring a family either through Egg Donation, Gestational Surrogates, or receiving Donated Embryos. She has established personal relationships with all the hand-selected POMA Egg donors, thus enabling her to enhance her matching skills.  One of Linda’s greatest passions is supporting same-sex couples and individuals through their journey.

In Linda’s spare time, she has become an accomplished cake designer- winning awards and was even invited to appear on the Food Network, which she quickly declined.  As with assisting those seeking Fertility treatment, being rushed, timed, and judged are not qualities she is fond of, instead putting much care, thoughtful attention, and detail into the creation is what results in the desired result.  Linda also equally enjoys spoiling her six grandbabies that are scattered across the country when she can. “I think I have earned a Ph.D. in that role”.
