Fertility Clinic Options for New Zealanders in Hawaii

ivf nz

Patients from New Zealand may choose to seek treatment at the Fertility Institute of Hawaii, due to the restrictions on certain services in their home country.

IVF with anonymous egg donation is a service sought by many; however, the use of anonymous donors is not allowed in New Zealand.   Due to the geographic location and the superior donor egg IVF pregnancy rate, the International Institute of Hawaii has become the center of choice for patients from New Zealand seeking egg donation.

Pre-implantation Genetic Screening (PGS) IVF in New Zealand

PGS or Preimplantation Genetic Screening has several restrictions in New Zealand.  Using PGS, couples can ensure that their embryos are chromosomally normal prior to embryo transfer with IVF.  While anyone can use PGS in order to ensure that only chromosomally normal embryos are transferred during an IVF cycle, PGS is often used for older couples who have an elevated risk of chromosomally abnormal embryos.   Likewise, couples with a history of miscarriages utilize PGS to decrease the risk of miscarrying.

Pre-implantation Genetic Screening (PGS) for Family Balancing is restricted in New Zealand.

PGS not only confirms that the chromosomal compliment of an embryo is normal but also determines the gender of an embryo. Once PGS is completed, couples are allowed to choose the gender of the normal embryos transferred in order to ensure family balancing.

Donor Sperm In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) cycles

The use of anonymous sperm donors is restricted in New Zealand.  Therefore, many couples will travel outside of the country to the U.S. where donors exist in larger numbers, to assist them in family building.   The Fertility Institute of Hawaii can assist you with a Sperm Donor IVF cycle.
