    I have to have criminal checks for my employment so having them again for IVF wasn't an issue for me. I get that most people don't have to have them because they are able to conceive naturally but I don't see anything wrong with asking for IVF. At the moment it just isn't possible to check everyone who conceives naturally but it is possible to check those who can't. It would be awesome if it was possible to check everyone but I think that it's always a good idea wherever possible.

    I have said what I think about this but will no longer be engaging in the discussion as I will probably just be upset by reading the discussion here.

    I don't agree with police checks at all. People who can conceive naturally don't have to do a police check so why should anyone else. To me it just seemed like another cost added and more time wasted in an already long process

    I don't have any issue with it. It's not possible to screen everyone who conceives naturally but I don't think that means they shouldn't screen those they can. It might also be to cover the companies butts?

    It is a legislative requirement in Victoria. There is no requirement for a criminal history check in other states.

    For those that are comfortable with screening for IVF/IUI, why do you think this is worthwhile? Do you think people with criminal histories are unsuitable to have kids?

    I would be seeking legal advice if I lived in vic and taking it for discrimination. If they can't do it for all then it shouldn't be for a selected group in society. I would be taking this to court.

    What do they do with the police check? What kind of offence would cut you off IVF services?

    I agree it's discrimination however I could understand the rational for child related crimes.

    I conceived naturally, but I wouldn't have minded doing a police check if it was required, so I am not really against it.

    Default WDYT - police checks for IVF

    As far as I'm aware it's only for child related crimes. I personally think it's a great idea. You wouldn't want to purposely help convicted pedophiles have children. Would be great if it was across all states though.
    And yes I've gone through IVF in Victoria and both DH and I had to get a police check.

    ETA: my FS joked about them not caring about the armed robbery last year.
