    Hi all,

    another couple of things I have been wondering about are, if you have all of the tests going through ivf do you need to go them again for surrogacy? do the donor eggs need to be in quarantine before you go ahead?

    Älso some friens of my husband said that medicare have some kind of system where you can make payments through medicare for the surrogacy fees. Has anyone heard of this? if so could you please explain the process

    Happy couple

    Hey happycouple,

    Im not sure on QLD surrogacy, but to be honest, I imagine it would count. There is obviously a reason for you not to be getting pregnant... and like you say you have been trying for such a long time.
    Would you be emotionally (and financially) able to have 6 attempts over the next year? Might I ask, are you using donor eggs, or have you frozen some?

    I would do some investigating about QLD law, and what the requirements are. Remembering that QLD is very new to the surrogacy game and are very tight on who gets in, and approved...

    Thanks Aimee,

    We have one frozen embryo so after that we would have to check on my egg quality I have not had that done for around 5 years. I will be 41 next month so I am not sure how my quality will be but we would be definatly interested in ebb donation. would you know if someone donates eggs to us if we can keep them for our use later like ina couple of months??

    I must say that this website has so much useful information from the ladies that are so freely and happily donating their time and also their bodies for everything that they do.
    thank you all so very much
    Happy couple

    Hi Happy couple,

    I think it would benefit you a great deal to go and speak to a fertility specialist who can go through the options with you and your hubby.

    As stated, having two negatives from two attempts at IVF will not qualify you for surrogacy. IVF is no guarantee that even a very healthy uterus will fall pregnant. The statistics that some IVF clinics use as their success rates, are based on a minimum of 3-4 tries. Unless, your fertility specialist finds a specific reason, in relation to your uterus, for the negative results, your next step will be egg donation.

    You asked if embryo's formed from egg donation can be used at a later date.......If the donation produces more embryos than what is being tranfered into you, then they are frozen as normal and you use them when you wish. You also asked whether embryos produced from egg donation need to quarantined......if the embryo is going back into you, then no. But, if the embryo is going into a surrogate, then SOME clinics will require quarantining.

    Medicare doesn't financially support surrogacy, so I'm not sure what your friend was talking about with the payments.

    I wish you lots of luck.

    Love

    Karen

    Sorry I haven't replied, been a little busy!

    What Aimee says below is correct. The law is so new that any judges residing over your parentage order are likely to follow the law to the T, meaning they won't be leanent on you if you don't fully qualify for surrogacy. My suggestion to you is to have a shot at egg donation and see where you end up. You may find you get pregnant first pop!

    Hi Rachel,

    No worries, I guess all we can do is do everything how they say then that is all we can do and surely that can only work in our favour.

    If we go through an ivf clinic and we cannot become pregnent after around 8-10 tries then can we use the results from these fertility clinics to then go through surrogacy?
    So i guess what i am asking is all the info can be transfered from the ivf clinics to the surrogacy clinics to do the assessment for the surrogacy as long as the counselling requirements are met like the counselling and stuff?

    Sorry it is taking me awhile to get it but I will eventyally i promise but I am sure others will curious also

    Take care everyone and have a nice relaxing friday night

    Happy couple

    It's ok, it is all very confusing. Yes you can transfer info from one ivf clinic to another. It's very easy to do, I have used a number of clinics over the past few years and they all have the same info on file because I have signed a release of info form.
