    Default Gender Selection with Donor Eggs & IVF

    Hi All

    Not sure if the direct question is a good thing here but I need some help. I have 2 girls and my last pregnancy was aborted because the fetus was diagnosed with a serious genetic abnormality. I wanted a boy and it was a boy. It took us almost 3 years to recover from that loss. Now I am 37 and just cannot throw away the thoughts of my boy. Me and my partner discussed our options and we have decided to go with Donor Eggs (our FS helped us in making the decision).

    Can some one please suggest some clinic which provides DE/IVF and gender selection?

    This site is like a blessing and I feel it's a place where you can truly be yourself and ask the questions which you hesitate to ask in real life.

    Please help me girls.

    Thanks

    As far as I'm aware, gender selection on non medical grounds is not allowed in Australia eg you have a genetic condition that can be passed on to male offspring bit not female or vice versa. As you are considering donor eggs, you would not be able to argue that your condition could be passed on.
    I think you would need to use an overseas clinic for this.

    Im really sorry for the loss of your baby boy. Gender selection for non-medical purposes is illegal in Australia (although they are currently reviewing the guidelines as we speak), however there is nothing illegal about travelling to California to visit Dr Potter at HRC clinic who does PGD. Whether or not they can help you out with donor eggs is another story, I'm not sure. If you are interested in any further info you should check out www.genderdreaming.com, there are quite a few Australian women on the forums who are in a similar position to yourself.

    Unless you already have a donor the odds of a clinic having donor eggs for you are low. A huge waiting list I believe. But if you travel overseas you can buy donor eggs.
    As Gingerkat said its illegal here to gender select so you would need to go to an overseas clinic anyway.

    Are you not using your eggs because of the genetic issue? Because they could probably screen the embryos for it if you wanted to use your eggs.
