Advocating for longitudinal follow-up of the health and welfare of egg donors

Woodriff, Molly; Sauer, Mark V.; Klitzman, Robert L.

Although short-term health effects of donation have been well studied, many unanswered questions remain about the long-term medical and psychological consequences for women who donate eggs. Studies of longer-term postdonation health effects have significant limitations, and are often retrospective, cross-sectional, or case studies.
