SAILING THE SEVEN SEAS

KATE BRIAN TAKES A FRESH LOOK AT WHAT COUPLES SHOULD BEAR IN MIND WHEN CONSIDERING OVERSEAS FERTILITY TREATMENT.

No-one really knows quite how many people from the UK decide to travel abroad for fertility treatment, but it is clear patients are visiting clinics across the globe, often attracted by competitive prices and perhaps the idea of a break from familiar surroundings.

We may think that people only go overseas if they need an egg donor, but a survey for the charity Infertility Network UK found that just 41% of those who’d either been overseas or were considering it were having treatment with donor eggs. The majority were travelling either for IVF/ICSI or other treatments such as IUI, ovulation induction, surrogacy or sperm donation.

If you’re thinking about this as an option, you may not know where to begin when there are so many options in so many countries. The Infertility Network UK survey found that patients had travelled to a total of 22 countries, often in Europe but also much further afield. Of course, it’s simply not realistic to do the rounds of open days when you’re a plane ride away from clinics you are looking into, but the annual Fertility Show in London can offer a great opportunity to meet the staff from a number of clinics from across Europe, the USA and even the Caribbean. If that’s not an option or the clinics you’re considering aren’t exhibiting, you can still do a lot of research from the comfort of your own home.
