It will depend hugely upon the clinic that you go through. Most like donors to be no younger than 21, but by the time you make the decision to donate, find some recipients and get things started there is a good likelihood that you'd 21 (or really close to it!) anyway.I'm 20 - is that to young to donate?
Donating won't stop you from having further children. The risk of infertility is small (around 1%) - but to be honest I have only ever heard of one donor who went on to have issues conceiving again (but that was more due to ectopic pregnancy than the IVF drugs).I dont want any more children, and if I did, and I couldn't because of donating, it wouldn't bother me much.
As far as I know, there isn't an injection that will kick start your period again...it's something to chat to the specialist about, because they may be able to tailor the cycle so that you don't need to have an AF (I know of a donor who is about to cycle with an IUD and the clinic is quite happy for her to keep it in during the cycle).But I was wondering how it all works properly. I have been on an injection for 3 years, and had my first period not long ago. Is there an injection that can kick start my period again so I can donate?
It's not too late, but given that you have a relatively short time frame, you may wish to approach a clinic about donating to someone on their waiting list. You can do that anonymously (where the recipients won't get too much more info apart from height, weight, eye colour etc), or you can ask to be matched to recipients who are happy to meet you and maintain some form of ongoing contact (sporadic emails, Christmas card, etc)...you just need to decide what kind of donation you want to do and go from there.Also, I'm from the UK (going back in November) is it to late to even think about it?
