OUR EGG DONORS

At CentraLIVF, we feel the same level of responsibility towards both our recipients and donors. That is why our egg donors receive the same individualised attention and comprehensive clinical care you have come to know and expect from your fertility clinic in Australia.

Where do Our Egg Donors Come From?

CentraLIVF team recruits and screens donors from Ukraine whilst adhering to the guidelines of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) and our own institutional ethics board.

Egg Donor Reimbursement:

  • CentraLIVF does not pay women for egg donations.
  • CentraLIVF strictly follows the Human Fertilisation & Embryology Authority (HFEA) Directions and Guidelines with regard to donor reimbursement.

The HFEA Directions and Guidelines applicable state:

  • General Directions 0006 – ‘(h) no money or other benefits has been given or received in respect of the supply of the gametes or embryos unless the money or benefits paid or received is in accordance with Directions 0001 (Gamete and embryo donation) or any subsequent Directions given by the Authority relating to giving and receiving money or other benefits;’
  • General Direction 0001 ‘Gamete and Embryo Donation’ – Giving or receiving money or other benefits with respect to any import of gametes or embryos from outside the UK.

When considering whether to import gametes donated overseas, the centre should ensure the donor has not received compensation which exceeds:

  • (a) Reasonable expenses incurred by the donor in connection with the donation of gametes provided to that centre; and
  • (b) Loss of earnings (but not for other costs or inconveniences) incurred by the donor up to a daily maximum of £61.28 but with an overall limit of £250 for each course or cycle of donation (local currency equivalent)

When receiving donated gametes from overseas, the centre must keep a record (provided by the overseas centre) of:

  • (a) The actual expenses incurred by the donor;
  • (b) The amount reimbursed to the donor; and
  • (c) The receipts produced by the donor, and/or the steps taken by the person responsible to satisfy themselves that the excess expenses claimed by the donor have in fact been incurred.”

Donor Screening:

CentraLIVF’s multidisciplinary donor screening team includes a Fertility specialist, a psychologist, a counsellor, and a genetic counsellor. Our thorough screening process includes a full review of medical history, physical examination, testing for infectious diseases, genetic screening, and psychological evaluation.

Additionally, mandatory counselling is provided to all donors throughout the process to ensure their complete consent and understanding of the process.

What makes your donor screening process so unique?

CentraLIVF team personally recruits and screens egg donors from Ukraine and Georgia, while adhering to the guidelines of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine and our own institutional ethics board. Donors will become available to donate only after their screening has been fully completed and they have been formally designated as eligible. Our rigorous screening process includes a full review of medical history. physical examination, genetic and mental health screening, and testing for infectious diseases.

Our multidisciplinary donor screening team includes a physician, a psychologist/counsellor, and a genetic counsellor, who is deeply involved in the screening and matching process. We believe that this enables us to identify any potential issues with our donors and address them properly. This approach that CentraLIVF adopted when it comes to donor selection is part of our commitment to the highest quality control.

Does the clinic guarantee a minimum number of eggs?

CentraLIVF doesn’t only guarantee a number of viable eggs. We actually guarantee the number of good-quality embryos you will receive during your egg donation treatment cycle.
