Donated eggs will be used to treat infertility patients who require donor eggs to conceive a child. The donated eggs collected by Egg Donors Australia will only be used by patients attending City Fertility Centre.
Fertility treatments are available to single women, same-sex couples as well as heterosexual couples. Fertility units are required by law not to discriminate on the grounds of marital or sexual preference.
The person conceived using donor gametes, and the donor of gametes, need to be protected from the consequences of having many siblings and offspring, respectively. Under the legislation, a donor is able to donate to 10 women in Victoria and 5 in New South Wales (this includes the donor and any current or former partner of the donor). In Queensland, there is no legislated limit for donations however, City Fertility has set a maximum of 10 as its policy position. This means that up to 10 or 5 women can have children, who are genetic siblings as a result of your donation, Please note there may be more than one child per family.
Our fertility coordinators are available to discuss any questions you may have, so please feel free to contact us. We are here to help you.
