The Guide taught us the most important lesson, I think. We learned not to trust IVF clinics’ success rates entirely. We admit that we were tempted by them at first, they were our ‘beacon in the dark.’ Thanks to the Guide, we are more aware of what factors they usually depend on…

Behind The IVF Abroad Guide
How to assure yourself a safe and satisfactory IVF treatment abroad?
Nowadays more and more people turn to medical help to have their babies. With in vitro fertilisation – IVF becoming increasingly popular, the tendency to look for treatment opportunities – IVF abroad – is getting more common among patients worldwide. There are different and complex reasons for such decision, including personal, social or financial factors.
Going overseas for IVF might be motivated by lower costs of treatment, specific legal regulations, egg donors’ availability or clinics’ success rates. As services and costs vary considerably among different countries, every patient’s decision has to be proceeded by a thorough analysis and detailed planning ahead.
European countries rank high among most desirable IVF destinations abroad. International patients who choose to travel to e.g. Spain, Greece, Czech Republic or North Cyprus, are attracted by both exemplary healthcare standards and comfortable travel arrangements. IVF Clinics in Europe continue to be favoured due to advanced IVF techniques that significantly increase the chance of pregnancy and quite a liberal approach to fertility treatment, resulting in more favourable legal framework for assisted reproduction techniques. Affordability and cost–effectiveness of the treatment in Europe (as compared to other world’s top IVF destinations) is also the key argument to local patients who are struggling to conceive – especially to the ones who don’t find satisfactory treatment options in their home country.
“IVF Abroad Patient’s Guide” was created with patients’ most common needs and hesitations in mind. Our main goal is to walk you through all the essential issues and information necessary to be considered when you take the possibility of fertility treatment abroad into account. We realise that such a decision is not an easy one to take, partly due to the obligatory prior thorough research of all pros and cons of such a solution. That is why we aim at making you familiar with all IVF treatment–related information and want to deliver it in the most compact and useful way.
Our Guide is to build up your confidence and make you feel comfortable while contacting clinics abroad as we know that it is a fundamental skill in assuring yourself a safe and satisfactory treatment. We want you to be prepared for all possible ‘what–ifs’ and stay aware of what you may expect in various destinations.
