Planning to travel outside the UK for fertility treatment

A survey carried out in 2007 (…rvey/?locale=en, not FZ endorsed link) found that over 50,000 people went abroad for medical treatment the most popular destinations included India, Hungary and Turkey. Approximately 10% of travellers were seeking fertility treatment.
Services, treatments and costs can differ hugely from the UK and between countries. Travellers are advised to carry out thorough research and preparation prior to travel and ensure that they fully understand the potential risks of seeking treatment overseas.
Comprehensive travel insurance is essential with a full declaration made to the insurers of any medical conditions and the nature of treatment.
It is essential to ensure that you receive a contract with the clinic or hospital which clearly documents what happens in the event of complications arising from treatment. Some countries may not have legislation relating to medical malpractice. You should find out if this is the case before you sign and check that your contract details what to do if you have a complaint.
Travel vaccinations may be required. Hepatitis B vaccination is recommended for those travelling abroad for medical treatment as infection control and blood transfusion standards can vary.

egg donation in Ukraine

I just
wanted to let everybody know about a clinic in Ukraine that me and my hubby have
recently been to. We went to a clinic called Biotexcom in Kiev. We were scared a little before going
there. I am 42 already, and we didn’t want to waste time finding a donor. So we
came to Kiev,
staff from clinic met us at the airport and then everything was like in a
dream. There is no such thing as a waiting list there, the equipment is all
new, and what is important the prices are reasonable, even cheap I can say. The
clinic provided us with a young donor, who gave 30 eggs, 10 fertilized, 4 were
transferred. Now we are expecting a baby!
