MONASH IVF DONOR PROGRAM PROCESS
Consultation with a Monash IVF Fertility Specialist
To book an appointment, please contact the number associated with your most convenient Monash IVF clinic.
Your Fertility Specialist will discuss suitable treatment options with you and will be able to advise of your treatment plan (activation) with donor sperm.
Patient Orientation to the Donor Program
Once you have decided to progress with treatment using donor sperm you can schedule an appointment with a donor coordinator.
At this appointment a donor coordinator will discuss the donor process of accessing Seattle Sperm Bank, timelines and the process of reserving a donor.
Donor counselling is a mandatory requirement for patients accessing donated biological material. Depending on your circumstances, you may be required to attend multiple sessions.
All counselling sessions are undertaken with a counsellor who is eligible for membership with ANZICA.
Genetic Carrier Screening
Seattle Sperm Bank donors undergo additional genetic screening tests known as Genetic Carrier Screening.
These additional screenings test for an extended genetic panel of diseases to prevent a child being born with a condition. You may be also required to undergo Genetic Carrier Screening. This process is facilitated by Monash IVF genetic counselling services who will assist with ordering the test and matching results with a recipient’s chosen donor. When reviewing a donor profile, please refer to the donor’s genetic results to understand if the donor is negative or positive. Your nurse or donor coordinator can also assist you to understand if you are also required to have Genetic Carrier Screening.
Sperm Donor Selection
When reviewing the donor profiles and completing the reservation paperwork, you will need to ensure you include your preferred donor and a backup donor to avoid any delays.
All donors with Seattle Sperm Bank are onsite at Monash IVF QLD therefore you will not need to pay additional shipment costs.
Prior to commencing treatment you will be required to consent to using donated biological material. Your donor coordinator will assist you with this process.
Program Clearance and Start of Cycle
Once all the steps and mandatory requirements have been completed and reviewed, you will be cleared to commence treatment with your chosen sperm donor.
