Donor Eggs

Important note regarding our donor egg program

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are currently unable to receive donor eggs until the travel restrictions have been lifted. We are, however, still consulting patients regarding our donor egg program, and have been working closely with ManorIVF to ensure our patients are kept well informed on the current situation.

Please refer to our website and social pages for updates on the recommencement of our donor egg program. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our clinic. We truly appreciate your patience during this time, and we strive to make the current situation as stress-free as possible.

Sydney Clinic, Fertility First has a collaborative agreement with ManorIVF to provide eggs from overseas donors to our patients. Former Melbourne fertility specialist and founder of ManorIVF, Dr Shlomi Barak has recognised the need to be able to provide Australian patients with premium donor egg treatment at an affordable price, without having to travel overseas.

Why has Fertility First chosen to collaborate with ManorIVF?

By entering into a collaborative arrangement with ManorIVF:

  • It will no longer be a requirement for patients to travel overseas to seek overpriced treatment.
  • ManorIVF has taken the steps to ensure there is compliance with Australian NHMRC and RTAC guidelines.
  • ManorIVF is the first clinic in Europe to provide mandatory counselling to their donors and the donors will also receive additional counselling with an independent Australian psychologist and fertility counsellor who is a member of the Australian and New Zealand Infertility Counsellors Association (ANZICA).
  • All donors are identity release donors, meaning that any child born from the donated eggs will have the right to know the identity of their donor once they turn 18.
  • ManorIVF has confirmed that all oocyte donors have proven fertility.
  • ManorIVF offers a guarantee on embryo quality.

Donors

ManorIVF has stated that the donors being sent to Australia are aged between 21 and 30.

The donors have undergone a comprehensive screening process in accordance with the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority and NHMRC donor guidelines involving:

  • A full review of medical history including an extended family medical history and their children’s health and development if applicable
  • Physical examination and sexual health history
  • Screening for Hepatitis B & C, HIV, Syphilis, HTLV 1 & 2, CMV, gonorrhoea, chlamydia, blood group and antibodies, full blood count and thalassaemia (when indicated)
