Per a study from March 2016:
“A concern for donation-related risk was recently confirmed in an 11-year cohort study of 85 female donors and 510 healthy non-donors who were carefully matched on baseline risk factors. Donors were 2.4 times more likely to be diagnosed with gestational hypertension or preeclampsia compared with healthy non-donors.”
The confirmation above refers to prior studies that have also come to this same conclusion. Search the blog for other pregnancy related posts.
