When Does Donor Sign Contract

(6 posts)(3 voices)
  1. I am cycling at SDFC and their policy is to have the donor bring in signed consent forms on the day of their baseline U/S. To tell you the truth that makes me a bit nervous. What happens if the donor decides she does not want to cycle and I don't find out until the baseline U/S?

    I guess it is always a risk even if she signs it ahead of time, as she has the option to change her mind, but at least if she signed them in advance I would feel some reassurance that she is committed to donating.

    Note: I am using a first time donor.

    What is your clinic's process?

  2. We are using an agency donor and they typically want the contract signed before the donor starts meds. I think this is pretty common. Waiting until the U/S seems late to me.

  3. Donnie - contract should be signed prior to meds being ordered - as you can't send them back. That being said, the donor can back out for pretty much any reason at any time. If she does, you are out med cost and at SDFC about $1000 in other fees. Don't stress over that, however, as I don't think it is common with them for that to happen.

    Hi A-
    I was told to order meds and have it shipped directly to SDFC. Once the donor comes in for her baseline and to pick up meds to start she will bring in the consent forms. I thought that was strange but was told that it was standard process.

    You are right I should not worry about it.

    Thx,
    Donnie

  5. Donnie -

    I didn't check with them about the donor's consents - I just took for granted they were handled once we chose her. I will certainly make sure for any future cycles that they are signed before ordering meds - seems she should have them turned in by then so we don't spend money on meds in case she were to flake out.

    (I ordered meds for donor and had them shipped directly to the clinic as well.)

  6. I only asked since I was told I had to get my consents in before I start lupron which is this coming Monday. I guess my donor does not start lupron until after baseline as all meds ordered was shipped for SDFC receipt by 9/1 (date of her baseline).

    Either way, you are right... even if consents are in she can back out anytime. So, it is really a false sense of security.

    btw, curious if you requested as part of the contract whether the donor would be willing to meet the DE child (hate that word, but not sure how to identify her/him) when he/she turns 18?
