Hi there

We have completed a number of IVF cycles in Melbourne, Australia with no success.
I am 43 and my husband is 45 and time is of the essence. We are now seeking to use donor eggs overseas.

Can you please advise next steps? Can I set up an initial conversation re costs, process etc?

Thank you for your interest. We can definitely set up a telephone/Skype consultation where we can discuss the specifics of an IVF/Donor Egg cycle. I am sorry to hear about your prior unsuccessful cycles, but our success rates with Donor Eggs are wonderful.

At the initial consultation, we will set up a treatment plan. We will try to perform as much as we can in Melbourne. The treatment and timing will vary if we are using fresh or thawed embryos. A frozen embryo cycle will allow for easier coordination for yourselves and will maintain a very similar pregnancy rate. I look forward to meeting and speaking with you about more of the specifics. If you could call my office at +1(909) 941-1120, that would be great.

Best regards,

Thank you for reaching out to HRC! We have treated many patients from overseas who are in need of an egg donor, so you are not alone. To get started, you will need to schedule a consultation with one of our physicians. This can be done by either Skype or phone, or if you will be in the area, then of course an in office consultation. If you are going to be coming to Los Angeles before planning on starting treatment, your medical evaluations can be done at that time as well.

After your consultation, we will want you to be evaluated to see if you are ready and able to carry a pregnancy. These tests include general health evaluations and a uterine evaluation. In many cases, some of these tests can be done at home with your treating physician. Otherwise when your treatment plan is organized, you can come for your final testing around your cycle start.

During your consultation we will explain the process in selecting your egg donor. Once you and your donor have been appropriately screened and your legal arrangements have been completed, your treatment will start. On average it takes approximately 4 weeks to cycle both you and the donor with the last procedure being the embryo transfer.

We look forward to hearing from you and helping you create your family.

Warm regards,
Alison Peck, MD, FACOG
