Just called monash ivf and they have 24 donors on their books currently, I mean wtf. Called melb ivf back and spoke to the donor management nurse (who I could tell was slightly miffed I had followed her up - even though she said tues that it would only be another day or two before something else came up) and expressed my concerns and that I may need to switch to monash due to them having a bigger donor list. She explained something about process and how monash basically let anyone in to be a sperm donor and that melb have more rigor around applying, that maybe only 1 in every 10 get through whereas at monash, they all might get through.
She also told me that donors get freed up or something from other people who are using them and become available again and that happens quite regularly and that that's what she is waiting for with me.
She also told me that I have basically a nil chance of getting my donor mgement fee back.
Does anyone know if there are any regulating bodies around ART and the ivf clinics that one can complain to?
I really can't afford to lose 2k and switch to monash and start over.. I'm doing this on my own and it's financially tough enough as it is.
I just have a bad feeling that they won't have anything decent for me before my cycle starts in early May.
