IVF in Turkey

Considering fertility treatment in Turkey? These are some of the factors that many choose this lovely country for their treatment.

IVF in Turkey

While there is no legal upper age limit for IVF treatment, Turkey does not allow egg donor treatments. This effectively sets an age limit for patients who require IVF treatments. This limit is wholly dependent on the patient’s ability to produce viable eggs which would be capable of being fertilized via conventional IVF treatment. This would be assessed via a screening process at the beginning of the treatment process. The age limit for IVF treatment therefore varies according to each individual case and requirement. If you are considering undergoing IVF treatment, Turkey is a great destination to consider. There are many excellent fertility clinics in the country, all of which adhere to government legislation on IVF treatment. The process of obtaining a visa to travel to Turkey is relatively easy, and most UK visitors will need one and the cost is £20.. So if you're looking for high-quality IVF treatment at a fraction of the cost, Turkey should be your first choice!

Turkey and IVF law

IVF treatment is a sensitive topic in many countries, and Turkey is no exception. The laws surrounding who is allowed to be treated and which treatments are available are quite strict. Egg, sperm and embryo donation treatments are prohibited in Turkey, as is surrogacy. It is illegal to treat single women and lesbian couples. What is allowed is IVF treatment using a married couple’s own eggs and sperm. In addition, PGS and PGD treatment are allowed, however sex selection for non-medical reasons is not allowed. Egg freezing is allowed for the following conditions: cancer patients; diminished ovarian reserve or a family history of premature ovarian failure. Embryos can be stored for 10 years but couples should annually let the clinic know their intentions regarding the storage There are laws on how many embryos are allowed to be transferred: Women less than 35 years old are allowed one embryo transferred for the first and second cycle. Two embryos are allowed with the 3rd cycle. Two embryos allowed for women older than 35 years old.
