Referral not accepted: patient age

Monash Health Fertility recently received a referral letter from your doctor requesting you have an appointment with a fertility clinician. Unfortunately we are unable to accept this referral due to the age limit on service access.

Eggs to be fertilised must be 42 years old or younger at the time of treatment. Research shows the chances of a successful outcome significantly decreases with increasing age.

Further to this, as your referral does not indicate that you already have cryopreserved eggs or that you have a younger egg donor, we are unable to accept your referral to Monash Health Fertility.

Please contact our Referral Management Team on if you have any queries about this message.
