If you are in a same sex relationship and want to start a family, Fertility Tasmania can offer guidance and support to help you create your family.
Currently Fertility Tasmania does not have a supply of local donor sperm, and uses Californian Cryobank (https://www.cryobank.com/) to assist and facilitate same sex couples and single women in accessing sperm. Recruitment of known donor sperm is equally facilitated. Treatment with donor sperm many include Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) orIn VitroFertilization (IVF).
It is important to be aware that we are regulated by the Assisted Reproductive Treatment Act 2008.
Donors, recipients and the people born as a result of donation have legal rights and responsibilities. A person conceived by way of donation has the right to obtain identifying information about their donor once they turn 18 or if their parents apply and the donors consents.
At fertility Tasmania we always act in the best interest of the child.
