Hi

Can't answer your direct question but if it helps I do know that some couples who are unable to be away at the same time have coordinated it so their partner goes overseas and does his bit first, then his OH goes over afterwards so only one of them needs to be away at a time.

Would that work? There will be special packing things they need to do and need to keep it at a certain temperature etc I think so you would have to courier it if you exported I imagine.

    I'd say it was unlikely but would love to hear what you find out!

    My wife and I have 4 frozen eggs at a clinic in Spain. We are thinking of moving to Austrlia. Is it possible to have these eggs shipped from Europe to Australia?

    Glasgow Nuffield says its fine for them to receive my embie from spain, Glasgow GCRM say its against the law according of HFEA ....

    Hiyyah

    My understanding after working both in UK and abroad is that with embryos crearted with donor eggs they cannot be transferred to the UK as the HFEA would insist on knowing identifible information about the donor for their records and Spain would not be able to give that type of info. I donīt think IVI are aware of this.

    Yes it is possible as long as they are created from your own eggs and sperm as the law in Australia does not recognise embryos created with donor eggs. If they were donor eggs then you may need to lie to get them in.

    Hiya,


    Ruth is correct, if they are anonymously donated egg's then they can not be imported into the UK. If the donor is agreeable to signing the consent form then they can be shipped. But that is not an option with IVI as the donation is done as a firm contract of anonymity as most donors are students and are paid for a service.


    We actually looked into it earlier this year due to volcanic and strike disruptions as we had our emby with IVI.

    Thanks for the replies Ruth and Jilly, you are both right, have contacted the HFEA myself too ...
     
    Am currently waiting on them to come back to me and justify why you can bring an anonymous donor embryo back to the UK "in the uterus" but not in a box ....  I have asked them to explain this logic as ultimately, however they are brought back, the point is, they are still being brought back into the UK so does the "shipping method" really matter????
     
    the idea to bring our embie back would have been far too easy wouldnt it?  Infertility is set to try us and definitely make life difficult !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
     
    good luck to everyone

    Transferring sperm abroad
    « Reply #19 on: 26/12/10, 16:51 »
    Hi,


    Does anybody know the score with transferring sperm abroad from the UK? I've read quite a bit of conflicting information and just wondering how strict the hfea guidelines are. Is it allowable if the cycle is for DE abroad or does it have to be an OE cycle? Does the clinic abroad have to have a special license?


    We are hoping to use Serum in Athens


    Any info gratefully received.


    Many thanks!
