Australian First: New genetic test set to improve access and outcomes for couples undergoing IVF

In an Australian first, Virtus Health comprising Melbourne IVF, Queensland Fertility Group and IVFAustralia has introduced karyomapping, a new genetic test that will significantly improve access to treatment and the chance of a live birth for couples wishing to avoid the transmission of a serious genetic disorder to their children.

Donor Conception

Nowadays at IVFAustralia, all our donor programmes are based on the principle of openness and respect the right of every individual who has been conceived following treatment with donated eggs and sperm to know the identity of their biological parents if they choose to do so once they have turned 18. This is because it is now clear that many young people who have been conceived in the past from anonymous sperm donation have experienced great distress from not knowing where they have come from. In some cases, this has had a profound effect on their lives.

Central register for anonymous sperm donor records

Today’s media coverage announced government plans to establish a central register of past anonymous sperm donor records, allowing offspring to apply for non-identifying information about their donor father.

At IVF Australia we recognise the distress that past anonymous sperm donation practices have caused. Nowadays, we take an open approach to sperm donation and all our donors are counselled about the long term implications of donation and are willing to provide identifying information for later access by the donor-conceived child.

Overuse of IVF and health of IVF conceived children

A recent article in the British Medical Journal has raised concern over the overuse of IVF in cases of subfertility and unexplained infertility and the potential long term health risks for IVF children.
