    Hi all

    I was wondering if anyone on here has exported their embryos from Thailand. I went to Thailand in April 2015 for egg donation, my niece was my egg donor. My transfer was not successful that time and I have since returned to Australia I am now looking into having my embryos shipped to Australia. I was just wondering if anyone knows is there any restrictions of moving gametes/embryos out of Thailand starting to come into effect. I know the law has changed now for surrogacy and having Thai egg donors. I am not getting much sense from the clinic but the courier company has questioned this and I just can’t seem to find any information on the current Thai laws.

    Has anyone recently done this or know where I can go to find out this information?

    Thanks

    Hi sorry to hear it was not successful. From memory i don't think you can transfer your embryos into Australia. But if you can i will also look into this as i am in the same boat. It doesn't matter that they are from Thailand. Australian rules makes it hard when it comes to ivf. But to make sure i would check with authorities in Australia. Also did you use traveling donor in April?

    I am also looking for clinics abroad and found online Manor IVF in Israel.

    Is that too far away or just about right? Have you heard of them, is it worth it?

    Hi Wanna Be,

    You are right, the laws in Thailand have changed dramatically since the incident with the boy Gammy.
    Shipping your embryos back to Australia is now looked at as child trafficking and find heavily.

    The easiest option would be to go there again and transfer.
    Good luck. 🍀

    Hi i used traveling donors, are you after a white child or Asian or no preference? Unfortunately when i went with traveling donors i still had to use Cathie, not that she is not nice but $500 to correspond with the hospital for a job i think the hospital and traveling donors should do. I went with the worldwide fertility center IVF Worldwide Clinic. They seemed nice and friendly but the nurse's were not great in English however you speak with the same nurse that speaks English and the doctors speak English. Overall i cant complain about the clinic as i am now pregnant and will be using them again with our remaining few embryos. Good luck in what ever you choose.

    Hi, as I just started seeking an egg donor in Asia as I am from Asian background, I found out Thailand is a no go at the moment due to legal change. I contacted Cathie, she advised her agency has move to Malaysia, will update me in a few weeks time. Have any of you had any experience with Malaysian clinics? Any recommendations or suggestions? Your help will be greatly appreciated.

    Hi huanyingni - I've contacted Cathie as well for ED/IVF and this is what she stated: "The standard of medical care in Malaysia is excellent and in my opinion superior to Thailand although it is difficult to get local egg donors as not part of the culture as it is in Thailand." I did my own little research online and from what I've read, Malaysia has gone through a lot of changes to becoming a first world medical/healthcare destination. Here's a link: http://www.allianzworldwidecare.com/...re-in-malaysia. Keep me posted on your experiences with Cathie! Would love to know anyone's experiences with ED/IVF in Asia...!

    Default Thailand was just as good medically

    Hi there,
    I'm not on here much nowadays but just seen some enquiries so will add my input.
    Yes Malaysia is great with their medical and has been a hub for international patients.
    I don't agree with Cathy saying it's superior than Thailand. (Yes egg donation is no longer available in Thailand as of mid 2015). Thailand has advanced excellent medical IVF clinics and have been doing blastocysts transfers for years. Well I with many others got pregnant first go! Thousands of people from around the world were using Thailands clinics.
    Cathy's business can't be using Thailand now so of course it's Malaysia is superior! Her interests are now in Malaysia.
    You can go direct to Malaysian clinics if you know how to accept their way of doing things. Which is wait, wait and wait and do not ask too many questions. It's an Asian thing I guess.
    Sunfert International s a reputable clinic located in a hospital in KL. A 50 min taxi drive located in a beautiful area next to a massive shopping centre. Their egg donor coordinator - also called Cathy is more than helpful via email and calls.
    I get some people prefer an agent to help with all the questions you want to ask. The Malaysian Ringett makes IVF egg donation quite cheap. Think it was $5k including donor fee. All donation is anonymous which is a bummer I feel.
    The clinic has its own egg donors through their own agent. I believe there is another agent which charges huge fees like $10k for a cycle. That's just ridiculous when you can do it direct at half the price and use that money towards your holiday there. Just tread carefully.
    Don't go with KL Fertility- the Dr is against egg donation-
    Prince Court Hospital- you need to come with your own egg donor. $$ hospital.
    Concept Fertility - they choose the egg donor for you.
    TMC fertility - heard they charge high $$.

    There is not a lot of options for people requiring an Asian donor since Thailand changed its laws. Malaysia is an excellent option. I have heard some agents in Thailand flying the girls to Cambodia. No idea which agents arranges this tho. Certainly worth checking this out as at least you maybe able to find an egg donor who is happy to have contact in the future. They just have to be asked and an agent can do this for you.
    Do your research, Kl is easy in travelling to, the clinics can arrange hotels and airport pick up.
    But if you don't use an agent make sure you have your fertility specialist here who can discuss their protocol with you and do your scans. I with my FS in Australia tweaked the medication to match the protocol we have in Australia and checked this with my FS in Malaysia.

    We weren't lucky in Malaysia numerous times for whatever reason.
    Other people with the same donor were. But we got lucky in Thailand on the first go.
    Is it the donor, the lab, who knows.
    Oh and ALL the clinics in Thailand were growing embryos to blasts stage and have been for many years. In Malaysia day 3 transfers are their norm. They may grow them to blasts if the donor produced enough embryos. This is at 2015 and from all the clinics I researched.
    It's long but hopefully this helps someone on their journey.
    Best wishes for everyone.
