There are many reasons why you might need to use eggs donated by another woman to have children. You may have experienced premature menopause, perhaps your ovaries were affected by chemotherapy or a serious illness or maybe testing after recurrent failed IVF cycles or multiple miscarriages shows your egg quality is poor and unlikely to lead to a baby.
The success rate using donor egg treatment is directly related to the age of the donor, and the number and quality of donated eggs.
It’s also important to acknowledge that the decision to use donor eggs or to become a donor is a complex one, with lifelong implications. At Genea we respect that all participants presenting for this treatment have their own unique circumstances and needs. Read about legislation and next steps.
Whether you find a donor through a local egg donation website or one of your family members or friends volunteers to help you, Genea requires that the donor and recipient couple undergo counselling before the process begins.
Because of the intense hormone treatment required to collect eggs, egg donation is a serious step for anyone to consider.
Egg donors are ideally aged between 21 and 35 years old and have completed their own families. All donors need to be tested for infectious diseases before the cycle. Tests include HIV, hepatitis B, hepatitis C (amongst others).
Genea’s Fertility Specialist will ultimately make the decision about whether or not your donor is eligible.
Men who wish to donate sperm should be aged between 21 and 45 years of age. They should be a non-smoker with a BMI in the healthy weight range and live a low-risk lifestyle.
Donor sperm might be your only option of having a baby if the male partner in the relationship has no sperm of his own, if you’re in a same-sex relationship or if you’re a single woman.
At Genea, we are currently working with Fairfax Cryobank to source donor sperm for our patients and we are in the process of setting up our own Donor Sperm Bank.
You can also have treatment with Genea using a known sperm donor. Your donor can be a family member friend or a friend you've known for some time or someone you have recruited online.
In Australia, donor conceived children are entitled to know the identity of their biological parents, if they so wish, once they reach the age of 18. All donors must agree to have their identity released when any offspring turn 18, regardless of whether the donor is Australian or not.
We will not go ahead with treatment using sperm where the identity of the donor is not available to be released to any resulting offspring.
