I am in the process of applying for permission to advertise for an egg donor (Victoria).
This is a new phase of a long fertility journey for me.
I was also told by my Monash IVF specialist that I qualify to be put on the waiting list for a donor embryo but today was told via email that I am ineligible because the cut off age is 44 and I am now 45. I am in a bit of shock about this because I would have made different choices had I been told this earlier.
Is it possible to register with other clinics - Melbourne IVF etc - and be placed on their waiting lists also? Do they have cut off age limits too?
I believe it is against the law in Victoria to advertise for an embryo donor outside of clinic waiting lists. Is that correct? Are there any other options?
I would appreciate hearing from anyone who has gone through embryo donation (recipient) who could provide some further (sensitive) insight.
I am concerned that Monash IVF is imposing age limits when that choice should really be up to the donor (albeit recognising that most donors might favour a younger recipient).
