    Default Can we access sperm to use with our own GP?

    Hey all!

    feeling a little overwhelmed with options at the moment. Has anyone used a fertility clinic just to access donor lists/donor sperm but had your GP/gyno inseminate/iui outside of the clinic? We live regional, and I love my GP who would be happy to assist. Just want to access donor sperm.

    Thanks

    Are you talking about using a known donor or an unknown donor?

    To use an unknown donor. Want to get access to a list and make a selection and have the sperm transferred to my GP for insemination 😊

    Or you advertise

    But I with regard to your go getting a list from a FS clinic I highly doubt it's that's taking their business away for free

    I think the only way around this is to import sperm from xytex ( sp?) from America but it has to be known donor. I'm still pretty sure it has to be an IVF clinic. But ask

    There is not any unknown donor in Australia it's illegal. It must be known donor. Sorry for multiple posts I'm using phone

    You will need to check your local laws re: assisted reoroduction also - depending on why you require donor sperm can affect accesibility of clinics

    There's a difference between unknown and not traceable. Known is using someone you already know or found yourself. Unknown means the clinic found them and the child can look them up at 18.

    Most IVF clinics treat there donors like an asset so probably won't provide the sperm without full treatment
