Day After Egg Retrieval 25. April 2015 Jenny Blog, Cape Town, Community, Egg Donor, Egg Donor Experiences, Emotions, Letters from Donors, True Stories (0) Hi. I'm feeling good. Egg donation was a very positive experience. The injections were painless and the medication gave no side effects. I felt a bit bloated and uncomfortable on the day of extraction but the doctors were very kind and the procedure was quick and painless. I am very honoured to be a donor and would love to do the same again in future.
