I am an Australian woman who has been referred to your clinic. While I have an appointment for a phone consult next week, I was hoping to have a few generic questions answered prior to this. I believe that my IVF clinic is planning on referring more women to you and this thread may help them to make up their minds about egg donation.

1) Is there an obligation or opportunity to meet with the donor?
2) Is there an opportunity to chose the donor well in advance of the cycle while still in Australia
3) How long will we need to be in America
4) Approx How long after acceptance onto a cycle does the transfer occur
5) What happens to the extra embryo's (if any) after implant? Can they be brought back to Australia for freezing and further IVF cycles?
6) Does the donor have the right to contact any children.

Many thanks

Here are answers to your questions:

1. Is there an obligation or opportunity to meet with the donor?

Some donors agree meeting the intended parents. When you look for an egg donor, you have to inquire directly with the egg donor agency if a particular donor is open to that.

2. Is there an opportunity to choose the donor well in advance of the cycle while still in Australia?

Yes

3. How long will we need to be in America?

About a week.

4. Approx how long after acceptance onto a cycle does the transfer occur?

Your embryo transfer occurs about 15 days after the donor initiated her ovarian stimulation.

5. What happens to the extra embryos (if any) after implant? Can they be brought back to Australia for freezing and further IVF cycles?

Sure, they can be transferred back to Australia for later use.

6. Does the donor have the right to contact any children?

Your information is confidential. I guess that the donor could contact the children if you meet with her and share your information.

Please feel free to call me if you have more questions or if you like to set up a phone consult.
