For us we investigated the avenues here in Australia and it seemed to be a choice between clinic recruited donors who are few and far between (over an 8 year waiting list at our clinic) or through an advocacy donor group. (There seems to be only one major one).
Our experience with that group was less than favourable and showed many areas where recipients could and were being exploited by donors. It also became obvious that there was a 'core group' of donors and if they deemed you 'unworthy' then you had little hope of finding a donor. This bothered me on a number of levels including the idea that the majority of donor conceived children were all from a very small group of donors.
I could go on but won't....
I also liked the professional and efficient program that was run in SA (we went to CFC too).
Timeframes were exceptionally good - you could cycle in just a matter of months. Which after years on the IVF treadmill was important.
