    Default Travelling Donors/Known Egg Donor Referrals

    Hey guys,

    After 10 failed IVF cycles, failed world egg bank donations, and also a failed attempt at using a friend as an egg donor we are now starting to get pretty desperate. Finding an egg donor in Australia looks almost impossible so we are now looking at other alternatives and just came across Known Egg Donors and Genevieve Uys. We are pretty hesitant about going down this path as we are not sure how legitimate it is. They say that the donors will be flown out to Australia from South Africa but she is unable to give us any references of any recipients in Australia that have actually done this.

    I am hoping that someone in this forum may have used her before for the fly in donors to give us a bit more confidence in using her.

    Have you joined EDA? I'd try there first as lots of people find local donors there.
    I've never heard of the person you mentioned.

    We were going to but there seems to be a lot of people advertising there and therefore not sure really how successful it would be in finding someone. We are still going down that path anyway but waiting for our kind Minister of Health in victoria to approve our advertisement.

    I'm pretty sure KED was shut down in Australia you have to travel to Asia now for transfer with them...I'd try finding a local donor or travel to Greece / South Africa (it's cheaper) - there are threads on here about going overseas.

    We found our donor at EDA, and if you immerse yourself in their community the wait for a donor to offer to help you could be a lot less than you might think

    Hi Ben. I’ve tried to pm you. I think you need to post five times to be able to send or receive messages.

    Go to Embryoland in Greece, Dr Nikos. There is a Greece thread on here if you want to read that.

    Hi guys

    I think that has helped alot. I was suspicious when Genevieve mentioned in her email not to advise the doctors that we were using them but that we had found our own donor online.

    Also some good support for EDA so we might give that a good crack. Is anyone else from Vic and was required to send their advertisement to the Minister for health? Im just wondering how long they take to respond?

    Cheers

    Ben
