    Adderall And Its Effects on Egg Donation

    Before we know what is Adderall, let’s do a quick overview of the importance of egg donation. Using donor eggs is a great option for women who are unable to naturally reproduce using their own eggs. Men also need an egg donor if using surrogate.  At Reproductive Sciences Medical Center, we have an extensive database that consists of a wide variety of donors worldwide. This allows you to select an egg donor that best suits your wants and needs.  However, understanding specific factors that affect fertility and the health of the donor’s eggs are important. This can help a couple make a more informed decision when it comes to choosing the right donor. 

    Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is a must for potential egg donors. Apart from ensuring she maintains a healthy lifestyle, the types of medications she is taking will also be considered. There are several drugs that adversely affect egg quality. This could ultimately complicate things when someone wants to potentially donate their eggs.  

    In this post, we consider the potential impact that Adderall may have on a woman’s ability to donate their eggs. We will also look at what actions can we take to reduce these potential adverse effects.

    What Is Adderall?

    Adderall is a relatively popular drug used to treat symptoms a person may experience that are associated with ADHD. ADHD, also known as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, does not only affect children and teenagers. Some studies have shown that approximately 2% of women may also experience these symptoms during adulthood. The condition causes impulsiveness, the inability to effectively focus and pay attention, and may also lead to restlessness. 

    Adderall is considered a combination drug that works by altering certain substances that are naturally found in the brain. The drug contains two active ingredients, known as Dextroamphetamine and Amphetamine. Therefore, we call it a combination of medicine. Both ingredients are stimulants that help to improve attention and focus. The medicines may also help to improve behavior.
