Receiving Donor Embryo

Embryo Donation conception

Once couples or individuals undergoing IVF treatment complete their families, they may choose to donate their remaining embryos to another couple or individual. This may be for a variety of reasons, including:

  • Not wanting to dispose of the embryos,
  • Believing it is ethically preferable to donate rather than dispose of embryos,
  • Feeling compassion for others struggling with infertility.

Who can receive a donor embryo

Your fertility specialist can suggest embryo donation as a possibility for you if previous fertility treatments have failed (or are highly unlikely to succeed).

The Melbourne IVF Embryo Donation Program is available to women until their 51st Birthday
