Hi Melly:

Welcome to the board! I don't know much about Canadian egg donation so I can't speak to that BUT I might be able to answer some of your questions...

1. HIV-It is highly unlikey that HIV can be transmitted to you via the oocyte. In a search I did, there are no reported cases of HIV transmission reported.

2. Risks : Here are the only types of risks that I know of:

Medication related:

Hyperstimulation syndrome: There is a small risk of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) developing during an egg donation cycle.
