Donor Embryo

Print

If you are nearing the end of your IVF journey and have some remaining embryos, there will come a point where you will need to make a decision on what to do with them. This decision to make is very difficult and it is completely normal to experience a wide range of emotions including grief, loss, confusion, indecision, anxiety or depression.

Chatting with a Repromed Counsellor is a good idea to discuss how you feel about your options and choice.

Some find the decision-making process too difficult, delaying the decision and ignoring the letters about embryo storage is a very normal response.

Remember, there is no right or wrong way to feel, the decision needs to be right for you.

Our Repromed Counsellors are available to talk about how you are feeling and what your options are.
Call 08 8333 8111

 

What are your options?

Your options are:

  • use your embryos yourself
  • keep the embryos in storage
  • donate the embryos to another couple
  • donate the embryos for embryology training
  • donate the embryos to research
  • dispose of the embryos
  • statutory disposal of the embryos

 

Donating your embryos

Donating embryos is a wonderful gift, but it is not a decision to be taken lightly.

If you are thinking about donating your embryos, it is important you accept and understand that a genetically-related child will be brought up in another family.

Chatting with a Repromed Counsellor is always a good idea to give you an opportunity to talk though what your options are and how you are feeling about your decision.

If you need more information about donor embryos, or if you just want to talk to someone, please contact the Repromed Counselling Department on 08 8333 8111or fill out the enquiry form below.
