Planning fertility treatment abroad?
Updated: Nov 10
Planning fertility treatment like IVF abroad in Europe in another country away from home can be TERRIFYING for some people.
If you haven't had fertility treatment before then this can feel even more risky, after all it's totally unchartered territory, which can feel scary and overwhelming and just too much for some people.
I know that in the UK we have some of the best healthcare in the world, but the NHS is chronically underfunded and the majority of people do not qualify for the fertility treatment they need to have a baby. Also in countries like the UK, America, Canada, Australia and New Zealand fertility treatment is so expensive privately more people than ever are going abroad for fertility treatment.
We have all heard lots of horror stories of other medical procedures abroad that have gone wrong, like Turkey Teeth or implants that have exploded and other sad things like this that have happened to real people like you or I.
There are however lots of people who have had very positive experiences going abroad for fertility treatment like IVF and who have had successful treatment, some after multiple failed cycles in their home countries. If you do your homework and are organised or get some help then there is no reason why you can't have a positive experience too.
As I touched on above there are lots of people who first think about going abroad due to the significant cost savings, only to realise as they move forward with the process that there are many other benefits of having IVF, IUI, Donor egg, Donor sperm, Donor embryo, Embryo adoption abroad.
Thing no waiting lists, more options and availability for donor conception, great communication and customer service, advanced treatment and state of the art laboratories and world-class clinics housing some of the best fertility Doctors in the world, transparent costings and time away from the stressed and strain of home in a holiday location, which should not be underestimated.
Like with anything knowledge and preparation are key to preparing to have fertility treatment abroad, there is also a lot to sort out and you need the time to do this.
You need to do your research and then to decide on what clinic and country to have your fertility treatment. This part of the process can be super overwhelming and puts a lot of people off going abroad. If you have ever googled IVF abroad you will know what I mean! You also need to know how to understand and interpret success rates, what to ask a clinic at consultation to ensure they are the right one for you, understand costings and what is and isn't included to help you manage your budget and you need to know what blood tests and ultrasounds you need and where you can get them.
As I said there is a lot to do, but it can be so worth it. If you have done your due diligence and found a safe clinic that meets your needs in the right destination for you and your circumstances and you are organised then why not plan to have fertility treatment abroad?
