‘I need to put my health first, and aside from being in and out of hospital, I have been unable to work or function as normal and it’s taken a huge toll on me over the last six weeks. I’m still very much in recovery.’ 

She added: ‘This involved telling recipient couple number three that I would be unable to donate to them. I need a break at very least, and at most I’m unsure if my body can handle another round physically or psychologically.

‘I had no way of knowing my body would react like this. Obviously I felt terrible letting this couple down, as they had waited months for my donation (after many years of disappointments) and we had already completed the counselling.

‘But (you would hope) a recipient would want a donor who is giving their body and time (and asking for nothing in return) to be healthy and feel right about their donation. It can take months or even years to find a donor in Australia, due to the long process and the fact that there is no payment involved.’ 

It comes after Megan was rushed to hospital in Queensland last Sunday after experiencing severe abdominal pain. 

She required immediate medical attention after getting off a flight from Western Australia.

‘Flew from WA back to Queensland yesterday after six weeks away for this egg donation. Ended up going straight to hospital from the plane,’ she explained in a lengthy Instagram post.

She said her symptoms included: ‘Severe abdominal swelling and pain, pain on pressure, plus a few other milder symptoms (nausea, dizziness, leg pain, shortness of breath). Unsure if being in the air made it worse.’ 

Megan was diagnosed with ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS).

‘OHSS is no joke, I can’t imagine how people with severe symptoms deal with this, because it’s just been a week of hell,’ she said.

Despite the painful ordeal, Megan joked she was still able to have a ‘romantic’ reunion with her boyfriend, Keith Newman, after being separated for six weeks. 

‘All in all I’ll be fine. Basically the amount of fluid leaking into my body is causing all these issues,’ she said.

She also thanked the staff at Sunshine Coast University Hospital who ‘looked after me well.’
