Hi broomdyke, I mean't my eggs aren't good (not having to get an egg donor), I only get a few eggs each cycle and then the quality hadn't been good, our first 3 cycles we only got 1 to transfer (chemical pregnancy). But a few things were changed and now we have 4 embies at the moment, out of my last 2 cycles, but they are of great quality and have been chromosomally tested, so I am pretty sure we will be successful now.
But it did get me thinking of egg donors and using donor eggs, but again in Australia this is so hard to get, this is why I assumed sperm wouldn't be a problem, cause I can understand why a woman wouldn't want to donate eggs, to have to go through all the IVF etc... but a man, lol easy But like you say, our rules are different.
The overseas rule is in my opinion better. I do get why Australia has such strict rules but we don't change with the times.
I just wanted to put it out there with the IVF, it really isn't so bad (I know before I did it I thought it would be horrific) and if there is such a shortage in the long run it may be cheaper.
You can also get 20% back at tax time for anything over a certain amount.
